We arrived an hour early for our reservation, and sidled up to the bustling bar and ordered a couple of drinks. The place was packed and really very loud in the bar area. It was difficult to have a conversation. It was a busy night at Harvest, so we were actually seated a good fifteen minutes after our reserved time, and we were starving. The bar area is large and is open to the main seating area. The atmosphere is welcoming and warm.
Our waitress was very nice. We looked over the menu and decided on the Organic Hummus Trio: Roasted Garlic, Edamame & Bruschetta and my companion ordered the Harvest Boneless Wings:Mexican Spice, Celery, Carrots & Gorgonzola Vinaigrette.
There were three vegetarian entrees on the menu. Tofu Stir-Fry, Veggie Burger, and Grilled Vegetable Kabobs. Not a big fan of tofu, I opted for the Veggie Burger: Avocado, Tomato, Baby Greens, Onion Marmalade & Bean Sprouts. The burger had a "meaty" texture, and I was quite pleased to see it came with a wheat bun, and loaded up with healthy accompaniments. Though the burger was on the larger side, I devoured it entirely. One of the best Veggie Burgers I have eaten.
Meat lover that he is, my companion chose the 500+ calorie Filet Mignon: Bacon Wrapped Asparagus, Fingerling Potatoes & Red Wine Demi Glace. Leave it to him to find the only item on the menu over 500 calories. This was a small portion, but reasonably priced at $23. I asked the waitress how many calories in the filet and was disappointed to find out she had no idea.
The desserts were $3 each, and most likely along the lines of what we had at Seasons 52, a small portion served up in a glass jar, though most likely a little tastier. By the time dessert time rolled around though, it was close to 10pm, so we decided to stop at Brewsters and grab a cone on the way home instead.
I loved the seasonal menu, the local growers listed, the many vegetarian and vegan choices, and the atmosphere. This would be a great place to return to for lunch, and I thought the prices were reasonable.
