So, has anyone been to Taste in Buchanan yet? Ok, yet may not be fair — the restaurant did open last July. Still, it has taken a lot of people a while to try it just because it’s so hard to get a table on the weekend. That’s what we hear anyway. I did manage to get a table on a recent weekday night — Thursday night, Ladies Night, when the drinks are half-price. That was a nice surprise. And the food was terrific!
The decor is kind of funky. Take a look at these curtains…
But there are a lot of wines to choose from. On Wednesdays, the owners prepare a special wine list and offer bottles at half-price!
But most importantly, the food is really good. The menu is New American “with global influences,” and you can see the chef’s creativity just by a quick look at the menu. I opted for the chicken, which came with this sweet potato puree with vanilla that tasted more like a dessert than a vegetable!
Colorful isn’t it??? My husband had the salmon, which was great, too. So definitely give Taste a try. Just maybe not on a weekend.
