Esker Grove

So, as of now, I’ve only been here for brunch. I have plans to return for dinner service, because the brunch was classy and delicious. The prices weren’t astronomical, the cocktails were creative and delicious, and don’t get me started on the donuts. They serve these warm donut holes rolled in cinnamon and sugar, WITH a curried caramel sauce on the side. For FIVE DOLLARS. I could have eaten 3 orders of those and would have been satisfied. Their other brunch dishes were very sophisticated and full of flavor. It’s no wonder this place was a James Beard Semifinalist for Best New Restaurant.
