Finally on a significant break from school, so I can get caught up on all the places I've been.
I've been here twice, the first time with my Dad for lunch a couple of months ago. I believe my Dad had fish tacos, which he really liked. We both had the soup of the day, chicken and dumpling, which was incredible. I love it when the dumplings actually have flavor/seasoning, instead of just tasting like globs of cooked dough.
I also stopped by this past Saturday night for a snack and a glass of wine. They were pretty busy, so I sat at the bar and had great service. Wish I could remember the name of the bartender to give her due credit (and she was quite cute too). They have a pretty good wine list and a great selection of beers. I had eaten dinner, but still wanted a little something and their soup of the day, roasted tomato, sounded good to me. I was right - it was very good, though not as good as that chicken and dumpling.
It's kind of funny. On the way home, I was thinking about the dinner at Cakes & Ale (that's next on the write-up list). It was so good, and it made me wish that there was a place like it where you could get good food with a good wine list. And I fortunately remembered about Local Republic. I'm so glad that they have opened to fill that void.
