Tuesday Nights: Boulton & Watt

Towards the end of  one year, my friends thought that we weren't hanging out enough. It's true, we weren't. So they started Tuesday night get-togethers. Every Tuesday, we'll pick a bar to drink, eat, and hang out for a couple of hours. Whoever can make it will attend. If you're busy, it's okay. There's always next week. So this is Tuesday Nights on Tasty Eating where you will find bars that serve food and how we like them.

On this recent Tuesday Night, we headed out to: Boulton & Watt
I enjoyed Boulton and Watt so much the first time that we decided to go back for some more. However, we found that some of our favorite items on the menu are no longer there! So long braised short rib toast. We'll miss you dearly. So instead, we decided to try a few of the newer items on the menu. First up, the tuna tartare ($14) with tuna, charred pineapple, avocado, and red pepper chutney with a side of fried taro chips. A nice refreshing start to the night.

To follow up the tuna tartare, we also ordered the guacamole ($10) with house made chips. Fresh, creamy but still slightly chunky. The freshly fried chips were a nice addition too.
The french fries with rosemary and salt ($8) were perfectly executed as well. Thin, crispy and fluffy inside. Well seasoned too.
A special of the night were the bacon wrapped dates which were both sweet and salty. A really good combination and very delicious. Perfect sharing appetizers. We enjoyed these so much that we ordered another plate.
The brats in a blanket ($10) were okay. One whole bratwurst wrapped in buttery dough then baked and sliced. Curried ketchup and spicy mustard for dipping.
The warm kale and artichoke fondue ($10) was hot and cheesy. The garlic croutons on the side were a bit too big to share and dip properly. We ended up using some tortilla chips to dip into the chunky dish.
Also a special of the night was the slab bacon which was served with a side of salad and some bread. This was just okay and I probably wouldn't order this again.
The roasted oysters were much better with an herbaceous, garlicky, and bready stuffing topping plump oysters. A squeeze of lemon just to brighten things up with the acid was just perfect.
Another satisfying meal at Boulton and Watt. The food is upscale and the beers delicious. I also really enjoy the decor was well. It's a really nice casual place to sit and enjoy with friends.
