Earls Downtown Restaurant Review

: The renovated Earls Downtown is still the kingpin of casual fine dining. Exclusive microbrews, inventive cocktails featuring fresh squeezed juices, and a wine list focusing on hot producers and regional strengths make Earls a rare breed among upscale chains. Although the menu features reliable standbys such as burgers, pizza and pasta, everything is made from scratch --- including the addictive sourdough bread --- and there's an emphasis on quality seasonal ingredients. Menu highlights include Los Cabos chicken tacos, dynamite prawn and mango rolls, jeera chicken curry, and authentic Asian-inspired wok dishes as well as steaks and chops. Strawberry rhubarb crumble with vanilla bean gelato, warm chocolate sticky toffee pudding, and a hot toffee sundae wrap up the mercifully short and sweet dessert list. Enthusiastic servers are a bonus.
