The entire first floor was the hotel while the 2nd and 3rd floor house the hotel rooms with a rooftop bar/patio which you can take the tiny elevator up.
We went for lunch on a sunny Saturday but was disappointed that they only served a few grilled skewers on the rooftop patio and I wanted to try items from their menu instead.... so we skip the sunny patio and opted to stay in and we were the only one there.
Free re-fills of coffee and Ben probably end up drinking 3-4 cups which means it's pretty goof coffee.
Charred Edamame $6
~ red chili, walnut, Cape Breton salt, herbs
This was very tasty and we can't help but keep devouring it. Unlike the boring steam plus salt version, this had a very nice pan-kiss to them with a very sticky thick sweet sauce to it with the perfect added crunch from the crushed walnut. I will definitely try replication this at home real soon.
Buttermilk Fried Quail $12
~ sumac + savory, fireweed honey, onion sprout
I just had to order this since I loved it back when I tried it at Hawthrone (post here) and loved it.
But unfortunately somehow, this was less crispy and even a bit soggy although the flavors are still there (>_<)
4 play @ Lunch $16
A quartet of samplings chosen by the chef daily and that day there was a refreshing light slaw + sauteed veggies & mushroom + Caborana pasta w/ bacon + grilled peach for dessert.
I was just in craving for pasta that day but would have otherwise miss the meat/protein here.
I initially expected really small portion but it was rather large portion, so so that I have to have Ben finished it... guess I couldn't have asked for a more perfect lunch at such a great price.
Beverly Burger $17
~ Guernsey cheese, bordelaise, pickle, watermelon, Kennebec Fries
Thought the meat was a bit overcook and dry but otherwise the combination of flavors were great. Love the refreshing burst of texture and flavor from the watermelon together with the strong Guernsey Cheese.
I have to say I love the fries here, it was incredibly well flavor with salt, pepper and herbs... you can basically munch on it even without ketchup.
Would definitely love to go back for dinner and try more dishes
But have to say service was a bit slow given that we were the only table.
