Supper Restaurant Review: New York-born Mitch Prensky and his wife Jennifer followed up their Global Dish catering business with this stylish South Street restaurant. From its cool hammered-copper exterior to artsy light sculptures, the place delivers California sex appeal in a sophisticated setting. Prensky has energy to burn in the kitchen, seen in such snacks as smoked chicken wings with birch beer, black pepper and buttermilk, and his charcuterie platter, a meat lover's delight, consisting of boudin blanc, country pâté and pork rillettes. Duck confit with pecan-sage waffles is another favorite, while the ten-ounce special LaFrieda blend burger offers a simpler pleasure. For dessert, the Butterfinger torte with salted peanut ice cream is difficult to resist, but then there’s also the comforting taste of a sweet potato Bundt cake, with bourbon syrup and toasted marshmallow ice cream. Every Tuesday brings a $25 fried chicken dinner, featuring pastrami-fried chicken halves with Thousand Island dressing, house pickles, a biscuit and a side. Ingredients are locally sourced, of course.
