Alchemy: I was excited to see a new restaurant open in South Park, in a classy old building near Ginseng Yoga, at 30th & Beech, because most South Park restaurants are further north (South Park Bar & Grill, Big Kitchen, Vagabond, El Camino). A friend and I headed over for dinner within the first few days of the opening. My dinner companion does not like the licorice taste of fennel, & asked that the fish not be served on the bed of fennel. The kitchen police patrol sent back a report that she had better order something different, then, because the fish tasted good with fennel! We decided to split three dishes, to sample: fish tacos (minuscule), a beet salad (too small for $8), and a burger our server raved about (but could not provide a steak knife to cut--we had to send it back to the kitchen for that). The food was unremarkable. There was no bread (unless paid). Total bill: $30. What a disappointment! I am hoping the customer service will improve, but won't be heading back for awhile to check on it.

After months and months of watching the construction of Alchemy, we were very excited to eat our first meal there. Went on a Friday night, and it was packed. Very loud. (Think we'll try a weekday next time and hope it's a little quieter!)

Everything I ordered was stellar: beet salad, pork with pears and sweet potato mash, cranberry bread pudding for dessert (A MUST-HAVE DESSERT!). Our friends both ordered the chicken and they raved about it. If a restaurant can do great things with chicken, they get a lot of points in my book. Howev, my husband sent back his sous vide halibut for being overcooked. They were very apologetic about it -- brought him another and didn't charge us for it. But then they charged us for two beet salads, when we only had one. :(

The menu isn't super extensive, but everything on it seems to be very high quality, obtained locally. And the price points are right on...very reasonable. I believe they really care about what they're doing. Every brand-new restaurant has a few kinks to work out, and this one is no exception (i.e., the wine list wasn't back from the printers yet). But overall, what a welcome addition to the neighborhood!

Our family met for an early Sunday b-day brunch and had a great experience. Some ordered breakfast items, others lunch items, but two of us (myself included) had the bacon-infused bloody marys and it was worth the trip just for those, but the food was great too! All of us would go back for sure and a return date night to try out their dinner is next on our list.
