We arrived in search of a relaxing, delicious, comfort-food dinner on a cold, wintry night, and that's exactly what we got! We ordered a collection of dishes so that we could share and try as many as possible.
The plates (rotisserie chicken, pulled chicken, and smoked beef) were superb. I majored in the smoked beef, and although not normally an enormous red meat eater, I could have gone back for a repeat of that perfect sweet meets tangy dish the following day. I didn't know what to expect of the light cream and pepper gravy on the pulled chicken, but it too, was a unique and delicious flavor. The rotisserie chicken was one of the best my husband has ever eaten.
Regarding the sides, some were clearly more to our liking than others. The fried plantains (sweet) were excellent, and the macaroni and cheese and house coleslaw were very good. Unfortunately, the brown sugar candied yams were a bit underwhelming (we prefer what we make at home), and the black beans with yellow rice was very bland. However, it was nothing that the amazing "green sauce" that comes with the meal couldn't improve. The sweet-corn cornbread muffins were a bit dry, but they were a nice accompaniment to the meal.
We didn't have much room for dessert, but wanted something small and sweet to end the meal. On a whim, we got the Brasa chocolate/sweet potato candy bar, which we should have skipped - it served the purpose, but was nothing special after such a wonderful meal.
Our server was courteous, attentive, and helpful and we look forward to returning on our next visit to the Twin Cities.
