The ambience in the restaurant looks nice... :)


I think $15 is a great bargain! All the dishes look wonderful. Your wine is more expensive than the 3 dishes combined! haha.


Thanks for the post. I have wanted to try this place, and now I definitely will. The food looks great, and I'm glad they have half-bottles of wine. I never see them anywhere.


Here's a little background on the location. The space on the left has hosted many different restaurants which, for various reasons, failed.
The space on the right used to be a barber shop.


I dined at The Better Half a few months ago, and thought it was great. Now that I know there's a stressed economy menu, I'll be sure to go back. Cafe Eleven down the street offers a nice prix fixe menu on selected nights as well. Great to know there's a nice selection of places to eat nicer meals at more affordable prices close to home.


The meal looks delicious! And you can't beat that price.

Yes, Selba, the ambiance is elegant in a restrained way.

Carol, Eileen, the meal is a great value. Even a better value if you bring your own vino - the corkage is only $5 (even for a full-size bottle) and the stemware is seviceable, if not Riedel. It tasted even better than it looks.

I was surprised, stephen, by the # of wines. I honestly thought they would be hard pressed to put together such a good list. Also nice if you want red meat and your sweetie wants fish - one bottle roso, one bianco. Easy solution.

Give it another try, toisan, just remember that the orders for the stressed economy specials need to reach the kitchen before 7pm.


wow that really is a bargain! jeez it seems like $15 is about what you pay for a glass of wine these days...


This place has great potential, and some of their dishes are legendary. My favorite was their baby back ribs. =)
