The Shed at Glenwood Restaurant Review: Although it’s at the heart of an upscale in-town neighborhood, this high-energy spot by spouses Todd Martin and Cindy Shera draws patrons from all over the city. Bar seating, high ceilings and generous windows affording views of the street scene set the stage for casual fine dining. The patio is well shielded from the elements. Local ingredients are featured on the frequently changing menu, such as the famed Springer Mountain chicken. Begin by exploring small plates and sliders, such as the fried oyster slider with lemon aïoli. Some of these are plenty for a light main dish, like the rich mascarpone-stuffed ravioli with braised pork belly. Roasted beet salad with goat cheese is a mainstay. We like the duck regardless of its specific preparation, and the grilled diver scallops play nice with the cauliflower gratin. For brunch, the Benedict perches the classic poached egg on an English muffin before lacing it with a crab meat-flecked hollandaise. For dessert, consider the lightly oven-warmed bread pudding with house-made ice cream. The well-chosen wine list offers bottles and by-the-glass options that are out of the box, such as the Craggy Range Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand.
