post Take Your Valentine over to The Greenside

…”all the way over” in Cedar Crest is a gem of a restaurant founded by one of the dudes behind The Range Cafe and Standard Diner.  I say “all the way over” because really, Cedar Crest is about 10 minutes from town – closer than most stuff on the Westside.  But I digress.

I like this place but don’t go a ton, but when I receive their emails for specials and new ideas, it always makes me happy they are doing well against the likes of really mediocre Chinese food and other less worthy options.

The owner and cook is Jay Wulf, and the place is Greenside Cafe.

On Valentine’s Day, Jay is offering a 4 course meal with wine pairings for $65 – yum!

Here’s the menu, to get you salivating enough to make reservations:

Valentine’s Day Wine Dinner Menu:  February 14th, 2012; Call 505-286-2684 for ReservationsAmuse

  1. Great call, Andrea. This is a vastly underrated restaurant, a true Turquoise Trail treasure (forgive the aliteration).
