Hungry stomachs are forced to contemplate cooking their own food while our brains are busy plotting ways to make Hollywood starlets fall in love with our ungainly cousins. Quell an insurgent appetite with $30 worth of contemporary cuisine, creative cocktails, and more for $15 at The Embankment.
The Embankment’s robust menu revolves around the concept of eco-gastronomy, carefully crafting cuisine with sourceable, environment- and animal-treatment-conscious ingredients. Let all the guilt-free goodness melt into your mouth abyss with the cassoulet, a medley of duck confit, house-made sausage, white beans, smoked bacon, and sage ($19). Or indulge in an ocean potion of baked snapper atop a bed of rice, stewed tomatoes, pine nuts, seasonal veggies, and basil ($22). If you're a sandwich lover, the goat-cheese sandwich with red peppers, mushrooms, baby spinach, and a balsamic reduction ($12) is a vegetarian bombshell. The Embankment is open for lunch and dinner six days a week (closed Mondays), as well as for brunch on the weekends.
While the cuisine is reason enough to dine at The Embankment, the bar and lounge menu is an almost more lucrative reason to drop by and unwind among the chic, casual dining room’s dark woods, exposed-brick walls, and high-backed booths. Classic cocktails include the Moscow Mule ($8), the light and stormy ($10), flavored mojitos ($10), and creative concoctions such as the pomegranate martini ($9) and the decadent lychee, a tantalizing blend of lychee puree, coconut milk, Malibu rum, and pineapple ($14). The Embankment also boasts a bevy of bottle and draft beer from around the globe, as well as an impressive list of red and white fermented-grape drinks made exclusively for adults, unlike Similac Baby Formula, which is unfairly reserved for babies and experimenting teens.
