Walking in, I was surprised at how small the actual interior is. There is a small bar with its own seating as well as higher tables along the perimeter. In the back, however, is a large butcher block table where a big group or a bunch of different parties (about 10 people) can gather and have some wine and appetizers. In the back of the restaurant in a large refrigerator where they store all of the antipasti meats and cheeses among other things.
They started us off with some good bread that came with a honey to spread on it that was AMAZING, to the point where I almost bought some when I found out it was for sale! They also sprinkled sea salt on the butter, which I thought was a nice touch.

For a drink I ordered a sparking red wine, something I haven't had since I was in Italy ages ago. I think it was a Lambrusco but I cannot be sure. Regardless, it was a fun drink - a little sweet and fun.
For the main courses Nick went with the merguez, which came with a roasted tomato jam.
I decided to go with the coulotte, and chose to have it with their own red wine sauce.

For dessert we shared a the Creme Caramel with Tahitian vanilla.
Another Barbara Lynch restaurant, another fantastic meal. I would highly recommend heading to The Butcher Shop to anyone looking for a tasty menu with some great surprise items.
