First of all, Harvest is really good. We were more than a little skeptical about the restaurant’s ability to make tasty food for under 500 calories, but they knocked it out of the park. When you try their fall menu, which will be there till December, don’t miss these dishes:
Pear and Blue Flatbread, $9: This sweet and savory appetizer is a perfect Thursday afternoon, thank–god–the–week–is–over snack. The blue cheese isn’t overpowering but plays well with the thinly sliced pears and fig glaze. We had no problem finishing this one off.
Coq Au Vin, $20: And the award for the dish that most made us want to lick our plates goes to: the Coq Au Vin. This wine–glazed chicken has a crispy skin and a glaze that we wanted to order by the pint. Winter evenings and this chicken have a bright future together.
Squash Stuffed with Quinoa, $12: The vegetarian entree that we couldn’t stop eating was this squash dish. Chef Anthony told us that it started as a special but was added to the regular menu after they saw a demand.
Banana Cream Pie, $3: After a huge meal, all we wanted was a small bite of something sweet to call it a night. The banana cream pie, served in a tiny cup, was tart and smooth, and the graham cracker “crust” on the bottom provided delicious crunch.
