For the longest time I have been really excited for Simon’s Restaurant to open. Due to my busy schedule, I have not had a chance to dine there, until now, and I’m so excited that I did.
Their menu is a twist on southern classics with a burst of global flavors, drawing on cuisines from Spain to Japan. We started with the firecracker shrimp. The shrimp was lightly fried and served on a bed of purple coleslaw. We, then, ordered the mussels. Honestly, I am not a fan of mussels with a red base. But I enjoyed these mussels that were in a red curry sauce. You can never go wrong with tuna tartare. The tartare was one of my favorite appetizers. It was fresh and offered a hint of spice. For dinner, we ordered the 10 ounce grilled flank steak. It was served with delicious garlic pecorino fries.
