Although the "all day happy-hour" with $4 beers/house wines, $3 shots an two-for-one wells was tempting, it seemed that the Bloody Swan was the thing to order for your first round. Photographed above, the cocktail comes with a spiced rim and garnished with the hail mary of all wonders: a slice of bacon, large prawn, cube of pepper jack, cocktail onion, cornichon and olive. How's that for swag?
For our mains, we selected a good variety. For myself, the flight of mac n' cheese. (A FLIGHT!) One of each of the three come on a wooden plank: sun dried tomato, bacon and plain clothes.
Chris selected the smoked salmon plate with mescalin greens, wonderfully ripe tomato, onion, charred and earthy toast and fresh horseradish. The image doesn't do it justice: there was a tremendous amount of fish under those greens.
