diggin’ this cozy little spot on driggs and north 8th. we stopped in on labor day and clearly everyone was still driving back from their last few precious days of summer; we just about had the place to ourselves… we had been in vacation mode the whole weekend as well so we were looking for something light and refreshing.
from the outside, fada looks a bit like a french cafe. warm, soft lighting with lots of vintage mirrors and small marble topped tables. we were intrigued and were further drawn in when we noticed the sign outside that said, ‘garden is open.’ garden with a kale salad special? done.
we were greeted by a friendly server who showed us to the garden in the back. it’s very quaint and intimate, perfect for a romantic date. the menu had a mix of classic french dishes and seafood staples. we settled on tuna tartare for our appetizer, then i did the kale salad special and jack had a roasted beet and goat cheese salad. my kale salad was very lightly dressed with an unassuming Caesar (just the way i like it) and was topped with big, crusty croutons. we’ll definitely go back when we have more of an appetite and try some of the heartier dishes. the prices were fair and the atmosphere was very laid back and relaxed, definitely worth a try!
