The new adventure of the Hatfields is a great treat. We were there the last two weekends (our third time there, with the first just before the December holidays). It's just up the street from Sycamore Kitchen, which is Karen's place. Karen also oversees all the desserts at Odys &P. Even though the place features various wood grill items, we've frequently ordered the fish. Excellent dishes of trout and branzino. Great appetizers and sides.
Despite the cautions of several of my food and wine friends that they did not like O & P, I wanted to try it so I went yesterday with another friend. There were two of us. My well meaning friends who did not like this place warned me that the food was just ok, service spotty, and wine policy draconian. I had quite a difference experience. We ordered 6 or 7 different courses and loved all but one, and even that one was savory. We made friends with the host who is also the beverage boss and with our waiter and we had excellent service as a result. The stated wine policy of 2 bottles was not even an issue, we brought and opened 3 bottles of good wine: Billecarte Rose, 09 Rav Montee de Tonnerre, and 01 Beaucastle. No worries. Our fav dishes were grilled crostini w creamy Dungeness crab, grilled branzino and grilled Australian blue prawns. No kidding we'll be back!
I just ate at Odys and Penelope last week. The evening started off on a rather shakey note as the receptionist seemed to have a really bad attitude and was very unhelpful. After we were seated the Manager actually came over to apologize and later sent a dessert over. As for the food it was creative, tasty and well prepared and well thought out. The grilled squid was amazing. I had the skirt steak and it was fantastic. I brought my own bottle of wine and the wait staff and the wine service were outstanding. This is a wonderful restaurant.
My group arrived to the restaurant as soon as doors opened. We were the first group and the chefs and staff were all lined up behind the bar all welcoming us. This immediately made me feel appreciated. Our waitress was very kind and patient with us as some of our group arrived a little later than expected but she made excellent recommendations and engaged in fun conversations! In addition to the friendly staff, the food is AMAZING. Just do it.
