4 Courses of food paired With 4 Wines for $45/person
We sat at the chef’s table overlooking the kitchen; loved chatting with the sous chef and watching the artful preparation of all the dishes.
T.W. Food has been on my to-do list for quite some time. On Tuesday nights you can partake in their wine series dinners (all wines based around a specific region); 4 course prix fixe menu with wine pairings for $55. Total steal and we luck out with Languedoc! All the wines were incredible (side note: thought it strange that they weren’t poured table side). Every course was great except dessert. The squash was not my cup of tea (bitter, bitter, bitter), but the thyme ice cream was heavenly! The service was superb. Can’t wait to try their brunch!

Saturday afternoon brunch at Tink’s, they were kind enough to accommodate our party of 9 even though the restaurant is super tiny. On Saturdays and Sundays from 11:30am to 4pm there’s a prix fixe brunch; choice of entree, coffee or tea, and a mimosa for $16. Coffee, food, service, and ambiance were excellent! The quirky decor is adorable and they bring checks out in children’s books (Amelia Bedelia, Goosebumps, cute!).
The chicken was great, pretzel crunch was delicious. The waffles were good, a bit on the heavy side due to the multi-grain batter. Combined with the heaviness of the pretzel coating, perhaps a regular buttermilk waffle would have been more appropriate. The chipotle honey butter was like a spicy version of sweet and sour sauce and paired well with the chicken.
I enjoyed the slight spicy heat in the gravy. Since I started with the chicken, the dish seemed to lack texture. Overall, it was great, but the chicken was my favorite.
