After extensive research, including consultation with several Yelpers who either live here or have dined in the area, birch was among the restaurants to make the final cut. Especially after Heidi, the General Manager and co-owner advised that the Chef was willing to accommodate my wife’s dietary restrictions.
We entered the restaurant to a very cold, impersonal, ungracious and curt reception, by one of the servers who merely yelled out to us “have a reservation”? We were directed to two end seats at the U-shaped table, and left to sort ourselves with our coats onto the backs of our chair.
Notwithstanding this inauspicious beginning, the two servers slowly began to warm up to us, and after receiving our first glass of wine, there was a steady improvement in the demeanor and cordiality.
We came here for the creative food orchestration and presentation, and we were not disappointed.
This is a fixed menu, and you select one dish from a pair of options for each of the four courses.
The quality of each dish was excellent and the quantity provided was quite adequate.
Seating is cramped at what might have formerly been an Automat, stainless steel dining counter in the 60’s. A beverage pairing is available, but since it includes non wine and may specifically be non-alcoholic beverages, we declined that option, opting instead to order our wines by the glass from the very limited wine menu.
All in all we’re glad we came.
