To some the word “vegetarian” is anathema to a fine dining experience; Tree House will convert even the most carnivorous to the concept that meatless does not mean tasteless. The mushroom sliders (pictured in the title image) will appeal to anyone who has eaten one of it’s meat-based cousins.
Pretty much everything here is well plated and quite delicious. The fried green tomatoes were one of our favorites. They were crisply fried, full of flavor, and the sauce that came with it was wonderfully spicy.
The street tacos were very good as well. The soy chorizo tacos and the black bean tacos were my favorite.
The cocktails were excellent as well. The mixologist, Billy, was more than happy to talk about his process and his thoughts about the different drinks. He often was harvesting fresh basil and mint from the bar to make his concoctions. The Roots (pictured below) was my absolute favorite.
Dessert was wonderful as well. We had a keylime cheesecake with a gingersnap crust that was wonderful in its simplicity. It included a peach compote that complimented the flavor of the cheesecake very well.
