We met up after work, had a couple of glasses of wine, and split some food. Very chill, relaxing happy hour to end the week. The vibe in G&V is pretty laid back - simple, colorful, and comfortable. As soon as the holidays are over (read: as soon as I have a discretionary income again), I want to make G&V a regular happy hour spot.
I may have forgotten to write down what kind of wine we were each drinking, but it was very good. I had a pinot noir that was incredible. It was exactly what I wanted, and tasted great with everything we ordered. L had a cabernet that I didn't like as much, but it certainly wasn't bad. I wish I could remember what kinds they were...
But let's move on to the part you really care about: the food. G&V's menu doesn't seem huge, but good luck deciding what you want. Everything sounded great, and it took us awhile to actually decide. We ended up deciding to split a couple of tapas items and them to share the pizza of the day. We figured that we could always order more if we were still hungry.
We ordered the garlic-parmesan fries with spicy aioli and the she crab spread to start. The fries were incredibly well seasoned, and the spicy aioli lived up to its name. It wasn't over the top, but there was a nice little kick to it. I wouldn't have minded if the fries had been a little crispier, but that's just because I like crunchy fries. They were certainly cooked well and covered in grated parmesan and garlic. I would very strongly recommend these to anyone who goes to G&V.
