Originally, the food menu primarily consisted of cheese plates, meats, salads and light sandwiches. Apparently it's time to evolve to food that is hot -- which sounded like a good reason to check the place out again. While the hot plate menu isn't huge, it offers a nice variety:
Mac and Cheese - $6Given our love of cheese and all things tacos, we opted for the Mac and Cheese, Grilled Fish Tacos, and Warm Goat Cheese Spread in Marinara Sauce:
Roasted Tri Color Potatoes - $6
Grilled Fish Tacos - $7
Cheese & Vegetable Croquettes - $6
Lemon Shrimp Kabob and Spanish Rice - $9
Albondigas - $8
Parmesan Crusted Chicken with Pepper Vodka Tomato Sauce - $9
Warm Goat Cheese Spread in Marinara Sauce - $6
Roasted Pork Shoulder Sliders - $7
Roast Beef Sliders - $7
First off, they clearly do a good job with presentation. When the plates came out our mouths were watering. The two cheese plates were piping hot and ready to be devoured. It took some serious restraint to get a picture before digging in.
The Mac and Cheese was super rich and very flavorful. While the portion size was average, it definitely needed to be shared, because one person couldn't finish it.
The fish tacos on the other hand were delicious, but rather small. Two bites for us and they were gone.
The Goat Cheese and Marinara was probably the highlight of the group and definitely something that would be good and easy to share with a larger group.
While all the food was quite enjoyable, this was clearly not a substitute for dinner...and as far as we can tell that's not the objective of Square One. If you're looking for a full meal, this isn't the place for you.
If you're looking for some interesting cocktails/wines, coupled with a cool, laid-back vibe (love the high ceilings) with the option of some delicious nibbles this is the place for you.
Seems like a perfect place to meet-up with a friend, go on a date, or spend sometime pre or post dinner.
We will be back.
