But meanwhile, they’ve opened a new restaurant in the hotel, Il Postino. It’s billed as having healthy “Springs Cuisine”. The restaurant is partly owned by Raphael Sassower who started the Warehouse Restaurant so you know it’s yummy.
They spared no expense to be able to keep and restore the original ornate tin ceilings.
Since it was the exchange building, there are many neat old safes. This one is being uses as a wine cellar now.
Janel and I recently went down there and had a couple of glasses of wine off their really good wine list and some appetizers.
The crab cakes were really good and unlike regular crab cakes- most times they have a lot of mayo or something creamy. These were very fresh tasting and no mayo- and also no breading.
In keeping with the healthy theme, these bruschetta were very light.
Very small plate of hummus, cannellini dip, and olive tapenade with veggies, bread and crackers.
The mushroom soup was also very light and tasty.
Now apparently I like taking pictures of food so much that I take pictures of other people’s food.
I’m not sure what this was since it wasn’t my order!
They have two happy hours (my fave) each day.
Daily Happy Hours: 4-6pm and 9- Midnight
$1 off any drink, 10% off any menu item, and 50% off any bottle of wine with some exceptions.
Plus they’re open till midnight which is really great since Mike doesn’t get off work till 11:00 and sometimes he’s hungry.
I can’t wait for the hotel to open. I think they’re going to have a couple other restaurants and bars in it, so that will be fun!
