The Colonial Wine Bar

We decided a return visit to The Colonial Wine Bar was in order! We got there as soon as it opened. The room is truly lovely.

The bar area

A cozy nook at the far side of the room – a perfect place for a large party and overstuffed chairs by the wine storage area for those who want to be treated like a king or queen!

Amuse bouche of chilled sweet corn soup with butter poached crab, crunchy bacon bits on top

Deviled eggs with pickled jalapeños, smoked paprika, crispy bacon and greens. Unlike most deviled eggs these were not halved but 3/4’s of an egg. The yolk had been mashed with heavy cream and pickled jalapeño. The egg was topped by the bacon and greens.

Dungeness crab crostini with melted fontina cheese topped with watercress and baby flowers

Lamb Meatballs in a Mediterranean sauce, purslane.  The sauce was a take on hollandaise without butter – egg, heavy cream, lemon, salt and pepper. It was topped by shaved feta cheese.

Heirloom tomato salad with burrata cheese, sherry vinaigrette balsamic gastrique, basil – just a summer delight

Grilled summer vegetables with fire roasted corn, zucchini, haricot vert, bacon and heirloom tomato jus

Cavatappi Bolognese Ragu, parmesan cheese

Fried chicken “Po Boy” with harissa aoli, house pickles, romaine lettuce, brioche bun

The fried chicken up close – they were to die for!

I know I am prejudiced about The Colonial Wine Bar but I really think it should be a must try.
