Fun, Edgy and Good Food
You're probably not there for art though, you're there for food. The back of the restaurant has the specials sketched out on a chalkboard as well as a "prix fixe" menu. The specials change daily. Regular menu items include pork tenderloin medallions with apple chutney ($18.50), mahi-mahi with cherry pepper coulis ($17.50) and shrimp sautéed with mango and curry ($16.50). You can see the whole dinner, lunch and brunch menus on their site.
I had the pasta of the day and chocolate mousse. The pasta was cooked perfectly and the spicy diablo marinara was right on. It was a bit hot for my dining partner's taste but I really enjoyed it (the waiter had warned it was very spicy). Dinner is served with a great cubed focaccia bread.
I've also had several meals catered by the Starving Artists and they're always a hit. We rarely have leftovers. Catered dinners include salad, a pasta/meat dish, bread and desert.
This restaurant is well worth a visit for it's quirky atmosphere, fun menu and fresh food. Sunday brunch is a great time to visit. They are not open for dinner on the weekdays.
