With prices comparable to casual restaurants, which pale in comparison to the cooking at Outpost, it's hard to be too critical of the cooking here. But it's also hard not to wonder what would happen if some of the ingredients were upgraded a touch. With bread from a great bakery and more focus on seasonality, the prices on the menu might have to adjust a little, but the resulting food would be improved immensely. For now Outpost is a good addition to the neighborhood. With some tweaks it could be a real destination.
