Another new restaurant for the ole 30 list! No. 246 in Decatur (and you really can’t go wrong in Decatur). The restaurant is very trendy – open space, open kitchen, great patio (though it was rainy when we were there). The pasta is homemade and they were making it while we were there!
They have a great wine selection, including the most interesting descriptions of wines I have ever seen: approachable; saddle; seductive. I was told by numerous people that the cocktails are amazing – but it was a Monday night, so I opted for the wine.
The menu is small but diverse and delicious. You start with a crispy, warm bread with olive oil. Then I had the Agnolotti pasta – I’m still not sure what kind of pasta it was, but it was tossed with asparagus, ricotta, tomato filetto (sauce – I had to look it up), pine nuts, and lemon. It was delicious.
This would be a great date night, fun birthday or celebration dinner, girls night, anything! I also just read on the website that you can reserve a the chef’s counter: sitting right at the kitchen for a 5-course dinner by the head chef. How fun would that be?!
