The Colonial Wine bar has just opened. I obviously can’t be unbiased as my son is one of the partners. But we did go Saturday night and at least I can post a photo essay to give you an idea of the food. The ambiance is wonderful.
Dungeness crab crostini with fontina cheese, baby greens
Flatbread topped with Eggplant, Bucherone cheese, mushrooms, arugula, olive and pine nut tapenade
Baja California mussels with fideos pasta, white beans, chipotle sauce
Lamb keftedes (meatballs), avgolemono sauce and purslane
Little gems lettuce, shaved radishes and pickled shallots served with creamy feta and black pepper dressing
We devoured the deviled eggs before taking a picture so only one left – Deviled eggs with pickled jalapeños, smoked paprika, crispy bacon and greens
Burrata, grilled peaches and spiced pecans
Pan-roasted bone-in Mary’s chicken breast with sweet corn polenta and grilled asparagus
Lamb burger with harissa aioli and herbed frites
Do go and let David do a special pairing for you.
