Dutch & Company Restaurant Review:

Except for stroopwafel for dessert, you won’t find much Dutch fare at this pressed-tin-ceilinged gem in a historical, resurgent neighborhood. The name is an homage to the heritage of co-owner Michelle Shriver’s late mother (whose artwork adorns one wall). Still, the warmth, graciousness, and hand-crafted cuisine by Michelle’s partners Phillip Perrow and Caleb Shriver (who’s also her husband) would do a Dutchman proud. The small, carefully-curated menu comes as a three-course prix-fixe or à la carte meal, and there are chalkboard specials. Starters include scallop ceviche with garlic lime chutney, tostones and whipped bone marrow, and the indisputably “perfect egg” with cured salmon. Entrées range from risotto with andouille sausage, soft shell crab, scallion and sunflower seed pesto to grilled skirt steak, all plated with local seasonal vegetables and fruits for a flavorful synergy. On a rare quiet night, you might catch the bartender bottling his own root beer and stockpiling it for Saturdays when D&C sometimes offers homemade dogs from an old Weber grill. Lovingly tended herbs (used in creative cocktails) reveal this place is the real deal. So does the big window that lets you watch the cooks from the sidewalk.
