You know those farm to table restaurants that are popular in California and pretty much, throughout the States? Well, this is another one of those restaurants. With an emphasis on utilizing fresh ingredients from local farmers, Hatchet Hall applies American techniques with wood fire cooking.
The interior is composed of casual elegance. There is a hidden bar in the back. It's dark, so reading the menu was a task in itself. The cuisine almost touches on a bit of the south. It's different and something you don't find at most restaurants.
|CORNBREAD ($11.00): Jalapeno, Cheddar, Cultured Butter, Honey. This bread was actually pretty darn good. It was moist and the butter went well with the cornbread. It looked burned at first, but that's cause they flipped the cornbread over.|
|GRILLED SWEET ONION ($8.00): Bagna Cauda, Lemon, Bread Crumbs. I loved these onions. This was probably my second favorite dish. It was sweet and had so much flavor. I loved the garlic. It is a must order.|
|Duck (I forget the price cause it was a special). The duck was just ok in my opinion. It was a little dry and I felt like it lacked some flavor. It's probably best to skip this dish and order something else.|
|BEEF FAT POTATOES ($8.00): Roasted Garlic Aioli, Salsa Verde. The potatoes were crispy on the outside and moist on the inside. The aioli was great. I don't think the potatoes were anything spectacular. They were just good.|
|WINTER SQUASH ($8.00): Calabrian Chili, Mint, Gingerbread. This dish was pretty good. I actually enjoyed the touch of gingerbread. Of the side dishes, I would pick the sweet onions over this.|
Notable Dishes: Benne Yeast Rolls and Grilled Sweet Onion
