Jane's Restaurant

Ernie and I met our friends Kelly, Dan and Steve for dinner before the Dexl brother's big birthday bash. We went to Jane's Restaurant which was right next to Cortland's Garage, the bar with the birthday boys.
The decor is adorable, especially the north room. The ambiance is very relaxed, romantic and cozy. Jane's menu changes seasonally, and this season's menu had several gluten-free options and even a dish for you Vegans out there. I opted for the Sirloin Burger smoked bacon, cheddar cheese, and grilled onions with mashed potatoes, without the bun of course. The portion was very large and the mashed potatoes were whipped soft and not too buttery or garlicy. While not stated on the menu, the entree also comes with a nice greens salad with sliced plum tomatoes and a light balsamic vinegrette.

Ernie ate the Goat cheese stuffed chicken with mushroom pastina and marsala wine. The chicken was really tasty and cooked just right so the meat was extremely tender. If you order this entree, you'll have to get a replacement for the pastina since it's a wheat cous cous. I'm sure you can sub in the greens salad!

Either way, you can't go wrong at Jane's Restaurant!
