Chef Proprietors Bob Stephenson and Carlos Arevalo are proud to open the doors to FnG Eats, Keller’s newest dining destination for locally sourced upscale-comfort food. Using fresh food offerings from the Keller Farmers Market, the FnG menu brings together the perfect blend of creativity, inspiration and skill to create exciting dishes based on homestyle favorites as well as new innovative offerings. Everything from its small plates, entrees, desserts and even its cocktail menu are developed to be a culinary experience. And best of all, every dish is served with a big helping of hometown hospitality.

My husband and I ate at a new (to us) restaurant that I had been wanting to try, on a date night last weekend. We arrived at 6:30 to find that recommendations are strongly recommended on Friday and Saturday evenings, and of course we hadn’t made one so the wait for a table was rather lengthy. Our options for quick seating were to eat at the bar, or at the “community table” (a long table that seats around 10, that multiple parties can sit at together), we went with the bar.

The bartender was friendly, and service was quick despite how busy he was (he was the only one working the bar that night). My husband ordered a Best Damn Old Fashioned cocktail, and I ordered a Jollyrancher (off the menu based on the bartender’s recommendation). We both enjoyed our drinks, and mine did taste just like a watermelon Jollyrancher…yum!

For our appetizer we ordered the Lodo, a chipotle black bean puree with queso and avocado. This is served with a pile of stone ground tortilla chips for dipping, and was very good.

For our main course we chose the Flat Iron Steak with Smashed Potatoes and Wood Grilled Asparagus, pictured below. The steak was melt in your mouth delicious, and the smashed potatoes and asparagus were amazing. We enjoyed every single bite!

For dessert we ordered the Creme Brulee…it was absolute perfection.

My opinion? Everything about this place totally did it for me! The location, the ambiance, the food, and the service were all superb. We will definitely be going back, there were so many things on the menu that I would love to have the chance to try!
