The restaurant is small, but has plenty of room between tables. The dining room is casual but from the well dressed clientele to the small floral arrangements on the tables, this place screams understated upscale. And it also screams serious foodie.
If that doesn’t make your mouth water, I don’t think I can help you.
Olive Oil Poached Wild King Salmon with Gribiche and Chives
Cripsy Pig’s Ear Salad with Frisee, Lardons, and a Poached Egg
This was a fatty, bright, texture filled dish and one that I would not hesitate to order again.
Grilled Cheese with Vermont Cheddar, Gruyere, Bacon, and Pork Belly
This is enough food to put you into a pork-induced coma, so be aware that this isn’t a great choice for lunch if you have to go to work later.
Frites with All Sauces
Served with a myriad of dipping sauces, they were all delicious, from the curry tinged Lime Pickle to the sweet onion topped Aioli to the spicy Sriracha mayonnaise…this was only $7, and was enough for 3 people, easily. These fries are unmissable, and so are the dipping sauces!
Besides that very minor detail, lunch at Resto was perfect – really. The prices are extremely reasonable, the atmosphere is great for a casual lunch or dinner, and the food is just fantastic. The menu looks so simple, but everything is produced with incredible talent and attention to detail. From the ethereal but hearty bitterballen to the porky goodness of the pig’s ear salad to the truly awesome frites, this meal was spot on.
