He also found my crumb-topped mac 'n' cheese ($7) on the bland side, though I thought that was partly from it being undersalted, heart health concerns being what they are at some restaurants. I promptly corrected that with a few shakes. But it really could have used a zippier cheese in the blend than cheddar and American.
I also ordered the meatballs ($7.50), expecting an ordinary experience, but was quite pleasantly surprised. The four fat fellas were spiced up with a little heat, just enough to catch my taste buds' attention. They are also available in a potato roll sandwich ($8).
Amy says that larger special entrees didn't go over too well as evening specials for bigger appetites when they opened in November. But a special we had, cioppino ($10), fit that bill, shell-on littlenecks and other seafood swimming deliciously in a spicy broth.
The hit of the meal? The moist and wonderful carrot cake ($4.50), hands down. After a taste, the three of us each order a slice. Even a limited menu can have unlimited surprises.
