THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Idaho Restaurant Review

: Here you have wildly inventive south-west American cuisine in deepest Highgate in a refurbished pub with wonderful wooden beams and dramatic lighting and a definitely hip, laidback feel. The restaurant is somewhat pretentiously divided into distinct areas: water (formal dinner only), forest (private dining room), great outdoors (tree-lined terrace), and earth (brasserie). But food is expertly prepared from the most delicious all-day breakfast with black beans and ranchero sauce, to more exotic fare like swordfish ceviche with plantain crisps; grilled mahi mahi; yucutan pepper stew; mesquite-grilled green onions, tamarind-grilled chicken with wild rice salad. Adventurous puddings taste as exotic as they sound---like coconut tamale with pineapple-aniseed salsa and toasted coconut. Excellent cocktails and a well put-together wine list divided into light, medium and full is matched by charming, high-fashion service. It’s very popular with well-heeled families at weekends.
