Pass and Provisions

The new "IT" restaurant.  At least that's the buzz.  It is located in the old Gravitas building, which I've always liked, but the food was always another thing.  Here, it's still nice and cozy like Gravitas was, but also feels hip and exciting.  I love the atmosphere!  No seating available inside, so we sat outside, which was a very nice space, I totally didn't mind.

Our server was very helpful.  We ordered some vino, apparently they sell half glasses, which I think is a marvelous idea!  I had 2 halves.  My dining mate ordered the wine flights.  On ordering I always ask for server recommendations. They always know the best items on the menu.  At his suggestion, we ordered two bread & cheese pairings, $9 each.  The Kimchi Pan au Lait with Warm Egg Yolk, and Coupole (Cow) cheese combination and the Whipped Lardo Challah with Bacon Charoset and Grayson (Cow) cheese combination.  Hello!  I have to order the Kimchi bread...after all, I am Korean!  I thought both combinations were interesting.  The bread was really nice, warm, soft, melted in my mouth!  The Kimchi in the Pan au Lait was very subtle.  I think it was the Grayson cheese, that came with the Challah bread...I didn't care so much for.  The softer cheese, probably the Coupole, that came with the Kimichi bread, was delish!

Under the Meat section, we ordered the Ham O'Day ($10), which I did not like at all.  I took one bite and gave the rest of it to my dining mate.  He seemed to like it.  It was like a raw meat loaf or something, at least it looked like it and it didn't taste all that great, in my opinion.  We also got the Ricotta/Arugula/Ham O'Day ($15) at the suggestion of the server.  That was pretty good.  It looked like the typical arugula prosciutto style thin crust pizza, but the ham was less potent than prosciutto.  It was much nicer on my taste buds.  The crust was delicious.  For dessert we ordered Lemon Pound Cake/Bay Laurel Ice Cream/Citrus ($9).  I enjoyed this very much, so did my dining mate.

Overall, I liked my experience.  They haven't opened the Pass portion of the restaurant yet.  Looking forward to it.  I would definitely go try, it's a cozy place, great for small groups and dates!  The couple next to us were on a blind date, so cute!

Pumpkin Pancakes @Black Walnut

Any chance I can have pumpkin anything, I will go for it.  I wasn't in the mood for pancakes, but Balck Walnut was offering pumpkin pancakes, sold!  It was just ok...but the other brunch items looked fabulous. Despite my mediocre meal, the atmosphere is one of my favorites inside the loop! The grilled cheese and tomato soup is fab! 

Chocolate Fortune Cookie!

I know you've never had a chocolate fortune cookie.  I'm asian and this is my first the Vietnam restaurant off of 19th st.  That was fun, Jay asked for 4 more and they gave it to us.  By the way, the lemon grass tofu is so dang good, I must shh...pause, in silence, and enjoy.

Spott's Park

One of the best parks inside the loop!


On this beautiful day, it was absolutely necessary we eat outdoors for lunch. Salad a little small and just ok. But great outdoor lunch spot!


Beautiful place!  Absolutely gorg!  We had the 6 course menu, $69 (with wine parings $120s), it was quite a show!  The bread was ahhmazing, you know I love my bread!  Everything else that followed was beautifully presented, lots of complexity...but, it was odd and I can't quite put my finger on it, but, I just didn't love the experience.  I thought the experience was very nice and all...but...I just chalked it up to maybe it just didn't fit my taste buds.  I thought the place was lovely.  Beautiful restaurant.
