The tense environment aside, the fact is the quality of our lunch was easily above average, although a little expensive. Each of the kids had a mac and cheese, made with a four-cheese sauce and topped with panko bread crumbs. Jenny and I split two "small plates" for lunch. Wanting something simple, I had the bacon and mushroom quesadillas, which went very well with the sour cream and chives and the freshly chopped tomatoes.
My wife got the best dish of the three, though, which was the ahi with fried wonton skins. Sprinkled on top of the ahi were both white and black sesame seeds. The light sauce hinted subtly of a vinaigrette. The avocados on the side complemented the fish nicely.
Before tax and tip, lunch came to $36, a bit much for a lunch that would not have filled us up if not for the twins' leftovers. Given the yellow bag episode at the beginning of the lunch, though, I can't recommend this restaurant. I understand they had a rule against bringing alcohol to enforce. But to shout across the room at a customer with an accusing tone is out of line.
