Their signature drink, the Rosy Cheeks: vodka, lemon, rosemary. I can say, having downed two of them, that the name is apt.

Appetizer numero due: the evening’s special. Mussels, Calamari (bonus: tentacles!), Sausage, Rigatoni, Chiles.
Entree numero uno: Pan Roasted Duck Breast, Foie Gras-Potato Gnocchi, Local Swiss Chard, Summer Squash, Peach Gastrique.
Entree numero due, also a special: Local Swordfish, Eggplant-Feta Fritter, Polenta-Stuffed Bell Pepper, Shrimp, Quinoa.
The finishing touch: Walnut-Ginger Cheesecake, Apple Compote.
You should go. Request a seat at the chef’s counter. You won’t be disappointed.

Oh dear lord, look at that duck. Why don’t I have any of that duck? All I have is envy. Burning, duck-scented envy.
wow, awesome date night! If someone fed me that well, someone would get lucky later on! (or we’d both pass out with lovely full bellies…)
I am having a Rosy Cheeks tonight. What a fabulous idea!
I practically grew up in KDH! I had no idea this existed down there, I’ll have to check this place out next time I’m down! Merci!
