Veranda Is Open!

Thanks to renewshaw.com for stumbling upon and subsequently alerting us to Veranda's "soft opening" last night. Our plans took us elsewhere, but it's good to know that some people were taking their chances with the limited menu last night (a picture-perfect evening to dine outside, I might add...who says global warming is all bad?). It seems that their "full opening" will be tonight. I don't know yet if we'll be able to make it, but here's hoping.

If you haven't yet been by the place, it looks fantastic. The bar is in a nicely-done classical style, and the outdoor patio will surely be a lively place during the warmer months. As to the menu...I'm salivating just thinking about the braised beef or grilled red snapper entrees. And don't even get me started on the pita pizza or the dolmades. I hope that Veranda takes off there, because it will surely add some life and energy to an otherwise rather un-lively corner.

BTW, their full menu and wine list is now posted on their website, so hop on over and take a look. Better yet, head over to Veranda some evening this week and check out the menu for yourself!

Actually, I think tonight's another soft opening-style evening at Veranda (they will be open tonight, but the owner spoke as if tomorrow night--Wednesday, October 24--is what he considers their official opening).

Their new website looks great!

I can't wait to try the lamb shank--it wasn't on last night's limited menu. And their outdoor patio will be really nice; I hope it opens this year!

Woops, for some reason I was thinking today is Wednesday.

One could only hope...
