When we got there and sat down at the counter they put a snack platter in front of us. The snack platter had seasoned goldfish crackers, spiced nuts, pickled vegetables, and olives. The goldfish were cooked with herb-infused oil and cheese. You could taste the cheese but not the herbs really. The pickled vegetables were a combination of sweet and bitter which was interesting. Then there were the spiced nuts. They had cayenne pepper in them but they were also a little sweet. It was kind of Moroccan. Last in the snack bowl were olives which are my favorite. They were sour and I like that personally.
My dad and I had three appetizers, two entrees, and three desserts. We split them all. The first appetizer was a Torta di Spaghetti which was like a spaghetti pie with shredded pork in a tomato sauce. The spaghetti pie was hot and soothing. It was good. The pork was meaty and stringy and went well with the spaghetti. The second appetizer as a fried broccoli with cheese and apricot jam. The broccoli was super crunchy and delicious. The cheese could have been a little better. It was too creamy and a little overpowering for me but my dad really liked it with the apricot jam. The third appetizer we had was a bitter greens and bacon salad with apples, spiced pecans, and maple vinaigrette. The bacon was thick cut and had a lot of flavor and the pecans were nicely spiced.
Next were the entrees. The first one we had was the fish. It was served with quinoa and had broccolini and rainbow carrots. The broccolini looked like asparagus but tasted like cauliflower and felt like broccoli. The next entree was fried chicken that had lemon, basil, and raw honey on it. The outside of the chicken was crunchy and spicy and the inside was moist. The skin had cayenne pepper on it which made it spicy.The lemon flavor on the outside was really strong and with the honey on it, the flavor burst in your mouth.
Finally, we had the desserts. The first dessert was an apple crisp with bourbon caramel, toasted almond, and pretzel crumble. It was crunchy, dreamy, and sweet. It had cinnamon in it and would go really well with pumpkin spice cookies. The next dessert was a banana sundae. The bananas on top tasted like like sweet plaintains and the caramel went well with the bananas. We had an extra dessert which was a pound cake with lemon curd. Wolfert's Roost is a really good place to go and you should go there once it is open!
