Although our party mostly went with the High Tea (using 2-for-1 coupons in the Entertainment Book), I opted for the regular menu this time around, just to see what they had.
Individual red wine braised onion tart ($13) Topped with chèvre, roasted mushrooms, and candied walnuts. Served hot with a side salad
- Pet peeve time: This was on the online menu, but not in the paper menu at the restaurant. Can they not update the online menus at the same time? This isn't a complaint specific to Neverland -- quite a few restaurants aren't conscientious about this.
- During our particular visit, they were sold out of the "normal" pasta (non-gluten-free) so they had to make mine gluten-free. But it was completely fine and nothing odd stood out about it.
- Their menu calls it "Neverland's own mac 'n cheese", which is an okay enough description since those are the primary ingredients, but if you are hoping for a mac 'n cheese, it's just not the same thing. It's quite dry and has no creaminess at all.
- Fairly tasty, but portion (maybe 1-1/2 cups worth) felt small for $12 and no side. This is more like a big appetizer unless you have a small appetite.
- Basically a single sandwich using two slices of regulation sized bread.
- Price for portion is sort of okay if you allow that they are pricing it like a gourmet burger.
- Taste is pretty good.
- Salad was heavy on dressing, so you may want to see if you can get that on the side if you don't like too much dressing.
- Passable as a light lunch so if you're not a dainty eater (which, to be honest, is likely their clientele) you'll probably end up ordering something else.
- Half hot chocolate, half tea of your choice. I went with the recommended Mumbai Chai.
- Comes out sort of like a London Fog and tastes just as weak.
- Neither a hot chocolate nor a tea, but an odd mix of both. If you are hoping for a thick or strong hot chocolate, this won't be it as the hot chocolate is obviously thinned by the tea.
- Make sure you get a strong tea to compete with the hot chocolate.
- $4 gets you approximately a Starbucks Grande size portion (16 oz).
