My thoughts on Eva
For my birthday ,last month, my husband surprised me with a birthday dinner out on the patio at Eva. We'd dined at Eva once before for brunch on our anniversary and loved it so I was very excited to try dinner and enjoy the darling patio behind the restaurant. Take a look at their menu in it's entirety here and I will share my experience with these items below.
Pictured first are the Parmesan fries which may not sound like too big a deal but they are! They are crisped to perfection and sprinkled with fresh cheese. Second we shared two pies; "Eva's Pie" and the "White Pie" which were both incredible and full of flavor. My husband and Father also split a "Pig Three Way Pie" and raved about it. The last photo is of the flatbread served with white bean puree and truffle oil as well as a pesto spread and olive tapenade. The spreads were so deliciously tasty I could have ordered three orders! Everyone really enjoyed that dish. Not pictured, we all shared the sauteed brussel sprouts and the lobster ravioli (2 orders of the ravioli!!!). The brussel sprouts came highly recommended by my dear friend Becky of Vintage Mixer (enjoy her review here) and did not disappoint. They are incredible and rich with hazelnut flavor. The ravioli were so amazing we went with a second order. They are handmade and delicate with lobster meat, mushrooms and a light butter sauce.
I love this restaurant and all of it's charm. I suggest you check it out this summer and then again in the fall as their menu changes seasonally.
