Craft, Comfort, and Room to Grow: A Review of Wilson and Washburn

In a town saturated with bars, bar and restaurant Wilson and Washburn is brimming with potential. The decor of the bar is dark and warm with a hint of sexy, as images of burlesque dancers are framed on the brick walls. A large wooden apothecary holds shelves of spirits, 24 taps of local and international beers, and two large flat screen televisions. A staircase angles up the back of bar near the kitchen, leading to a lounge area upstairs with a capacity for 50 people, perfect for parties or work functions.

Mediterranean Bistro and Wine Bar : Hummus is Yummus

Living on the southern coast of Turkey for a couple years made me a bit of a snob when it comes to Mediterranean food back here in the States. I often find myself making smarmy comments along the lines of, “Oh, you think this is hummus? Too bad you can’t taste the hummus I ate when I lived on the southern coast of Turkey for a couple years.”

I know, I know – it’s annoying.

You can understand my trepidation about trying out the Mediterranean Bistro and Wine Bar, because after all, not only was I worried that I would be disappointed by the food but I was also a little afraid I might go into smarmy mode. That’s why I went with my friend Sara; she had recommended this place and hasn’t...
