Cedar Restaurant Review

: Down a flight of stairs and entering a woodsy setting, patrons will discover that Cedar’s kitchen strives to bring field and stream to an elegant menu, one that showcases such edibles as roasted beets tossed into a salad, pan-roasted day boat scallops and cauliflower soup served with a sorrel custard. Dinnertime dishes have included savory fare such as venison casserole, grilled elk sausage and braised Texas wild boar. Lunches tend to showcase lighter, less lofty options, and you might be well pleased with the grilled salmon or Angus flat-iron steak salad. Desserts don’t have quite the open-air quality, as the sticky toffee cake is very citified. Check out the artisanal cheese choices and the dessert wines.
