Here are the best hits: The Madras Chicken Curry Sandwich is packed with grilled focaccia with baked and diced meat in a curry mayonnaise, apples, golden raisins, red onions and lettuce, served with a kale or sweet potato salad. Tony’s Rueben stacks minced corned beef, sauerkraut, caramelized onion, bacon, and Swiss with a layer of secret sauce over grilled marbled rye for a wonderful, messy bite.
The Cobb Turkey Salad mixes romaine and fresh greens with avocado, cherry tomatoes, cucumber and pickled onions and fortifies it with turkey rolls, bacon and generous blue cheese crumbles. A green herb goddess dresses it all up for a hungry punch lunch.
Breakfast is available throughout the day, tempting with hash sweet potatoes and zucchini, avocado toast, or gluten-free oatmeal with almond milk or pastries. Weekend brunch draws in with exclusive specialties, such as roasted Mediterranean vegetarian frittata with lemon sour cream or chilaquiles – a bed of corn chips stacked with eggs, sour cream and feta, topped with roasted Poblano pepper and tomatillo salsa.
The wrap-around bar is fitted with a premium espresso machine producing organic roasts alongside a good set of beer taps. But Reeves joked that it wasn’t a call to action for alcohol. The call is for all ages, families and groups of teenagers. Plenty of communal tables, Mid-Century decor, oversized pendant lighting, and lush trellises by interior designer Andrea Wojack add a touch of culture. Handicraft merchant products are displayed at the entrance. The adorable quail logo is a product of Shepard Fairey of Studio Number One, who designed the Obama Hope poster. In short, a welcoming space.
