The Grilled Eggplant starter came two to an order. The eggplant was topped with tomatoes and mozzarella which came melted and bubbly. It was served with a side “salad” of sorts including a single leaf of romaine lettuce and a cherry tomato. Grilled bread was also accompanied the dish. A balsamic glaze was paired with the dish. The eggplant was tender, yet retained some texture. This was a good starter.
The Grilled Salmon came with a grilled lemon, and some toasted bread. The portion of salmon was decent, but it was slightly overcooked and a tad on the dry side. The dish would have been helped with some veggies rather than two pieces of bread.
The Caesar Salad was a deviation from the norm, as it came with grilled chicken, capers, and bacon. The lettuce was crisp, and there is a lot of chicken. It is a little on the salty side due to the bacon and large amount of cheese. I could do without the capers since I don’t like them. The salad was a little heavy on the dressing, and the croutons could be crispy as they basically use toasted bread instead of making proper croutons.
The food is pretty good here, and a good change of pace from having Czech cuisine on a daily basis.
