Went to dinner here this evening and I must say it was an absolute delight. Very eclectic ambiance with an open courtyard with old b&w movies playing on the building wall. The food was outstanding.
Wife had Diver Scallops with cheese grits.
I had filet with chimichurri sauce and frittes .

I have two 5-6 lb briskets to cook in the oven Monday. I have them rubbed down with dry rub and I will probably braise in a foil pan with dark beer. Need to be sure of time and temp. I am thinking 275 degrees for at least 5 hours.
Thanks in advance.
