After more than a month of just offering brunch and lunch, Sunshine Co. rolls out its dinner menu tonight.
Opening of the Washington Avenue restaurant and cocktail bar has been delayed for months while owners Alexander Hall, Sabrina Godfrey and Kenny Nix awaited approval for a full liquor license.
In December they opened a dry daytime-only operation, and on Saturday, they opened the bar under a beer and wine license.
Tonight, chef Julian Calcott debuts a dinner menu.
Appetizers, which range from $9 to about $12, includes such dishes as oysters with mignonette; fresh burrata with lamb belly; sea beans and radishes; roasted carrots with horseradish creme fraiche and salmon roe and clams and cranberry beans with tomato broth, herb puree and shaved fennel.
For entrees ($12-$22), there's such offerings as pork walnut and apricot stuffed agnolotti, spatchcocked chicken with anchovy chilli marinade and grilled gem lettuce parmesan crackers; duck breast with mushroom caramel, oyster mushrooms and cabbage and poached salmon with beets horseradish creme fraiche and apples.
If Hall and Co. receive a full liquor license, the restaurant will also be an upscale cocktail bar styled after such places as The Vanderbilt and (a less pretensious) Clover Club, but in the meantime, they've come up with a creative slew of wine-based cocktails to sip along with your meal (more on this soon).
Sunshine Co., is located at 780 Washington at Sterling Place. M-Th 12-12, Fri. 12-2, Sat. 10-2 and Sun. 10-12
