THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Clementine Restaurant Review

: Clementine offers the kind of “fusion” seen too infrequently in the culinary world: it’s a truly family-friendly, fine-dining restaurant. As darling as its name suggests, Clementine already looks like a longtime neighborhood fixture, with its vintage black-and-white signage, ceiling fans, local art, an expansive second dining room, and a well-equipped, cozy play area just for the kids. The restaurant is a family affair for owners Winston Blick and wife Cristin Dadant --- there are many family recipes in the mix --- and the service is warm and casual. The dinner menu, though, is serious stuff. A definite "must" is the house-made charcuterie platter; entrées (which change daily) have included pan-roasted rockfish with black quinoa and braised rabbit stroganoff. And if this all sounds a bit fancy for your kids, order them one of Blick’s specialties: macaroni and cheese. Daily specials include tacos on Tuesdays, burgers and $15 entrées on Wednesdays, and wine flights on Thursdays. Wine, beer and creative cocktails are served.
