AS220 FOO(D)


While waiting to see Vincent, I stopped in at AS220 FOO(D) for a bite to eat. On a Friday night, the bar and dining area were full, but in a friendly way. Carryout patrons lined up beside my counter seat to wait patiently for their dinner. Beside me, a man offered to bring me silverware and a glass of water from the carrel in the back.

Behind me was a large table of people engaged in a spirited conversation. One asked to borrow a pen.

There's no table service. You're given a playing card, and when your meal is ready, the cooks shout out the playing card from the counter.

The menu is varied, with lots of vegetarian and vegan options.



I chose the roasted Brussels sprouts with cranberries, maple thyme and walnuts. They were excellent, and spicier than I'd expected. The maple even paired nicely with the Yacht Club cream soda I ordered.

Although it was technically a side, the portion was big enough to make a light meal. I didn't go away hungry. I also heard great things from several people about the macaroni and cheese. There were lots of carryout orders for it while I was there.

AS220 is an art space, so there was plenty of art there in the bar, too.

It was a good experience in dining, service and sociability. Definitely one to return to.
