Radial Cafe opens for dinner

Posted By on Fri, Oct 14, 2011 at 3:57 PM

Owner Frank Bragg has made the happy decision to open his popular restaurant, Radial Cafe, for dinner. The space has also been remodeled and has a pub-like atmosphere now.

The menu is brief and adheres to Bragg's farm-to-table ethic. There are eight entree plates, plus sandwiches and salads.

I tried a starter of cumin-heavy fried garbanzo beans — a gigantic portion, probably better for snacking with a beer than as an appetizer per se. My entree was short ribs (of grass-fed beef) braised in Zinfandel, topped with red onion jam and served with a parsnip-potato puree. It was also a gigantic portion, half of which I took home. Full as I was, I also tried the restaurants "famous cinnamon roll," as my server called it.

All of my food was good. It's straightforward, uncomplicated comfort food. At $15.99, my short ribs were the most expensive thing on the menu. Several dishes, like braised local pork, can be ordered in half-portions. Sandwiches are all under $9. A few breakfast dishes are also available at dinnertime.

Service: A-plus. Great art on display too.
