Black Cat Grille
They knocked that out of the park!
No, I am not an employee, a friend of the employee or anyway connected to Black Cat Grille owners.... We heard about this place from a realtor's office in Wilton and thought we would give it a try since we just moved in the area last July 2013. We have not found a decent place around and would still go to our old dives in Westport and Norwalk to eat... Tonight, we tried the Black Cat Grille. I had the Blackened Cat Fish Sandwich with Sweet Potato Fries and I thought it was a two thumbs up... very moist, tasty and the ciabatta bread was a perfect match. I normally don't eat the bread in fish sandwiches as they are normally midiocre, but the chef in the kitchen definitely put thought to the bread pairing. The sweet potatoes were not burnt and perfectly crispy. My husband tried the Black Cat Burger on a pumpernickel roll.... the roll was missing and instead, used a pumpenickel slice bread. He says he still enjoyed it and found his burger to be moist. Maybe because he likes his burgers medium, which came to our table perfectly medium. Both our plates were cleaned up to the last crumb. I guess that tells you we enjoyed every bit of the food on our plate. Then we ended our meal by sharing a dessert. Our pick was the Ameretto Bread Pudding topped with whip cream. They knocked that out of the park! Not too cloyingly sweet and perfect size for us to share and not feel overstuffed. Pricewise, we definitely thought it was more reasonable than the other competition around the area.
As for the service. We had very good service. Our female server was sweet. Although it seemed she was taking care of all the tables, we didn't think we had to wait a long time to be served.
Yes, we will be visiting the place again soon and trying the ribs and the fish and chips that people wrote about. :)
