Wildcraft Grill

Before we headed to the St. Jacobs Country Playhouse to catch The Crazy Time performance, we headed to Wildcraft Grill + Bar for a hosted dinner.

The weather could not have been m ore perfect! It was our first patio dinner of the year!

Wildcraft Grill

Wildcraft is a premium casual dining and socializing venue. It is an upbeat urban environment with a comfortable suburban approachability.

First up, we ordered a starter.

The calamari with a cornmeal crust on tomato, kalamata & roasted garlic ragout with sweet pea shoots and crispy capers drizzled with a herb oil.

My friend, who as I mentioned is gluten-free, was ecstatic that the calamari was in a cornmeal crust!

The calamari was tender and perfectly coated and fried.

My friend ordered the W Burger, on a gluten free bun.

The burger was comprised of naturally raised beef, roasted garlic aïoli, heidelburg double smoked bacon, aged cheddar cheese, lettuce,  vine ripened tomato, and served with roasted garlic mashed potatoes.

Overall – the burger was apparently quite tasty – but I will tell you, they cook their burgers to well-done, so if you want it a little more pink in the middle, be sure to mention that to your server when ordering.

I ordered the herb roasted chicken with pan roasted wild mushrooms, celeriac mashed potatoes, grilled vegetables and a roasted chicken jus.

This was a massive meal!

The chicken was so big, and juicy.

It was deliciously paired with the wild mushrooms.

I love mushrooms and will add them to any meal if possible.

Ok…almost any meal. LOL

We each ordered a dessert, because – why not, right?

My friend ordered the Creme Brulee, which aain was gluten-free.

A wildberry & vanilla bean custard with a vanilla sugar crust and served with a lemon thyme shortbread.

I opted for the dessert special of the day.

Dulche de leche cheesecake.

Yes. You read that correctly.

This was, by far, the best cheesecake I have ever had in my entire life.

Hands down.

After dessert we headed inside and checked out their amazing wine cellar. I want one in my house. LOL

On our way out – we ran into a wedding party celebrating their special day on a private patio!

I really enjoyed my dinner at Wildcraft Grill + Bar and could have stayed on that patio all night! But alas, we had a show to catch.
