Uptown Tavern

There's a new kid in Hillcrest -- Uptown Tavern!  On Thursday, I had the pleasure of visiting Uptown Tavern for an exclusive press event. 













We started with their special drink of the evening, a Sparkplug, a nice, tart vodka concoction with plenty of citrus and sparkling water. It was a very refreshing drink for a hot summer evening!



Slices of flatbread pizza with fresh tomatoes, buffalo mozzarella, and basil. Incredibly good!
The next little appetizer was a rice ball, with cheese, coated in cornmeal, then deep-fried and served with marinara. A skewer of tomatoes with fresh mozzarella, topped with balsamic vinegarette was a nice, fresh accompaniment to the rich flavor of the cheesy rice ball.



The grand finale? Individual molten chocolate lava cakes!! One of my favorite desserts, this cake was so rich and satisfying. The small size was perfect.


Can't wait to go back and try out their entire menu!!!
