A-Frame (3)

A group of us came here on Friday, right before an engagement party for my friends Larry and Michelle (congrats!). Nice and easy, quick in-and-out, crowd-pleasing. On this visit, I was able to try a few more new dishes. The wagyu beef tataki was pretty standard, but was well-executed. Same with the crab cakes, which tasted better when wrapped in shiso leaves. The roasted lamb was really good – will probably be one of the repeat dishes in the future. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to try the burger (it was gone by the time it got to me), but everyone at the table thought it was very good. Overall, another great meal at A-Frame.

    1. Yeah I know, but everyone was dead set on ordering certain things (even though they’ve never been). Plus we had another dinner later that night at Larry’s engagement party lol.
