Walking up to the corner of Glenneyre and Mermaid Street, you are greeted by 2 massive, tinted doors with a hint of light, flickering from the candle-like glow lining the inside walls. Entering the building, you instantly get a big city vibe with their high ceilings and top to bottom windows, dim lighting and casual, hipster staff. The hostess, whom flashes her bright smile asking if you have a reservation or if you would like to sit at the bar, greets you. On a busy night, don’t even think about trying to dine here without a reservation, being in high demand for their seasonal menu, there is not a dry seat in the house. If you are a person who prefers to sit at the bar, I suggest you do so, being that the bartenders are extremely friendly and knowledgeable of all their back bar spirits, you are bound to be entertained and have an unforgettable experience. Try out the “Gin Lucie” on their craft cocktail list made with gin, rhubarb, lemon, thyme-simple syrup and an egg white, or if you are into spicy drinks order the Miablo, a hotter than hell ghost pepper infused tequila cocktail with cilantro, grilled pineapple and citrus—beware the attached disclaimer is if you order it you pay for it.
Three-Seventy’s menu is constantly changing, being that they are a farm to table restaurant using local and seasonal ingredients, and pride themselves on being globally influenced, but domestically sourced from facilities that practice principles of sustainability. Start off at the top of the menu with the section labeled “Bites” which is exactly what is says, servings by the piece. It’s a great way to start off your night tasting a couple different flavors straight from their kitchen. Order the Pork Rillettes Toast with radish, pickles and sea salt and their Short Rib Grilled Cheese, which sells out fast, so order quick before they’re all gone. Move down the menu to “Small” to order their flavorful Kale Salad with pear, onion, apple, cheese, quinoa pomegranate, walnut and spicy honey vinaigrette along with their Kampachi with citrus, ponzu, apple, yuzu and chili to share with your friends. For dinner, order everything family style and share with the table (or bar). Get the Bone Marrow with parsley, red onion, radish, grilled bread and chimichurri from the “Medium” section and the Pork Loin with harissa bbq, mac n’cheese apple-sweet onion slaw, Duck Breast with sweet potato-duck confit hash, apples, bacon and red wine, All Natural Rib Eye with potatoes mushroom and red wine and/or the Market Fish with fennel, quinoa, watercress, kumquat salsa verde and walnut from their “Large” section. Add a side of their Broccolini that comes with a fried egg, Parmesan and prosciutto bread crumbs from the “Small” section and you are set.
Ask the bartender for a “Beer F***er”, an off the menu beverage consisting of their light beer on draft with a splash of fresh squeezed orange juice and a shot of their whiskey choice to accompany it. They’ll show you what to do.
They have gluten-free options! Ask your server or bartender for more details.
Making a reservation is highly recommended.
