Tar & Roses is where we ended my Saturday birthday celebration, this place is amazing. I like how the menu is set up, you first start off with a snack, then ease into the small plates and continue with the large and veggie plates. The great thing about the large plates is they have two options a meat and fish that can be shared. I rarely see this on menus. 

So we started off with the popped corn with bacon, brown sugar and chili. Now I know I don’t eat meat, but I couldn’t say no to popcorn. It was so good. We also tried the squid ink tagliatelle and octopus, I love anything with octopus. We then ordered the rib eye for two and the fried red snapper for two. We accompanied them with Jerusalem cauliflower (those were my favorite) and Brussels sprouts. It is rare when you get an entire fish served at the table, so it was a little shocking at first but you just dive in. It was cooked perfectly, nice and crispy outside and nice soft on the inside. 

Every meal needs to end with a fantastic dessert, and they didn’t disappoint. I ordered the strawberry ricotta with honeycomb ice cream. Hands one of the best desserts I have had in awhile. The honeycomb ice cream was amazing, I have never had it before it had such great flavor. 

I cannot wait to go back.
