We had such a great meal that we went back the same week.
The Magpie is located on the corner W. Leigh and Norton streets in the Carver Community. The decor is quirky and eclectic featuring dark wood, red velvet, and vintage items adorning the walls. They sport an ample bar.
To eat, we selected either entrees or small plates depending on their specials and our own whims for the evening. Small plates we tried on various evenings included:
Fried Hearts of Palm with roasted poblano pesto - a great take on the ubiquitous fried zucchini. A good-sized portion. The unique pesto made the dish more delightful.
For entrees we had the OMG surf and turf described above and Braised Berkshire Pork with mashed yucca, smoked heirloom tomato, and coconut au jus. The pork did not need a knife. It fell apart into delectable bite-sized portions as soon as the fork touched it. And it was wonderful having mashed yucca instead of potatoes. A bit more starchy with nice soft chunks of yucca. Once again, an outstanding entree.
We also splurged on dessert. Cherry bread pudding with ice cream and tequila caramel sauce and Coffee cake with espresso cream and caramel sauce. Desserts were good, but lacked the wow factor that the small plates and entrees had.
