First of all, I will start by saying they were absolutely mobbed on Friday. Busiest I've seen them in awhile. Great to see!
The renovations seem to be mainly the moving of the bar. The bar was hidden in the back but now it's front and center :) Looks good. Sorry, should have gotten pics. We sat in the back (where the bar used to be). It's mostly bench seating with a couple of tables at the end. It's a little more quiet out there and you can see food coming out of the kitchen if you're curious.
I will say the service was a little slow at the beginning of our evening but it was expected as they were so busy and dealing with a whole new menu. It took half an hour to get drinks and another half an hour to get our apps. By the end we were on track though, mains and dessert were quicker, and everything was fine overall.
We ordered the vegan bread sticks and the fries for apps. Both were great. The fries were delicious and crispy and cooked great but they did come out not overly hot while the bread was steaming. Again, working out the kinks I suspect. My main was the vegan mac & cheese. Had to try it. I've tried making Vegan Mac & Cheese at home and it wasn't very good. This dish was good though, way better than my attempt, but still not great; so not something I would likely order again. Hubby had Fettuccine & Meatballs and really enjoyed it. Dessert was their vegan option, I want to say Nocciolino, but not sure if that's correct. This dessert is what I usually get, it's a small custard/pudding-like dessert topped with coconut cream and the flavors change up each time. This night was cocoa and it was great :)
