They have a garden out back! As someone from out of town who just wandered by, I had no idea. Lemonade is awesome and everything I ate was amazing!

We just ate at Slow for the first time on Friday night and really enjoyed it. However, I was surprised to see zucchini in the pasta when it's not currently seasonal and then found out from friends that the menu hasn't changed since Slow opened (which explains the zucchini). Unfortunately for Slow, my friends have said they won't go back again, after having eaten there many times, because they have now had everything on the menu and more than once. So, in hopes of supporting Slow, please consider changing your menu to reflect what's seasonably available. I think that will help drive more repeat business as everyone will be curious what new delicious creations are available.

I dined at SLOW Thursday night Nov. 18th. The chicken with flagelots, beets and green beans was delicious! My dining partner also ordered the Apple Blueberry Cobbler which we found a bit salty. Personally, I use less salt than most in my home cooking, so I happen to be perhaps more sensitive to it than other restaurant patrons. Overall, I thought the entire meal would have been tastier with less salt. In any case, I will defiantly go back. I appreciated the smiling staff and the choices offered. It is good to see the restaurant is composting.
