    The rib eye melt... one of the best sandwiches I've ever had. Crispy, cheesy bread with chunks of rare rib eye... perfect.

    Asparagus fries disappointed since the batter constantly fell apart; however, the cioppino was packed full of seafood (mussel, clams, salmon, sea bass, AND shrimp).

    If not the best deviled egg I've had then definitely in the top five. Lightly fried, which makes it slightly more unhealthy and slightly more delicious.

    We loved our choices, drooled at pretty much everything that the runners passed by with, and made sure to save room for the butter cake. Oh, the glory of the butter cake...
