I had the special French toast paired with a drip coffee. I can't recall it's exact name from the menu as it is only available on certain days (Tuesday). The zesty buttermilk lemon sauce was brilliantly paired against the berry drizzle which was soaked into the pillow like French toast. The flavor was warmly preserved within the bread as time went on and the rich coffees bitterness was well accompanied against the sweet French toast.
The food is great. Worth the try. Pizza is fresh and really good. The service really brings this place down. You'll have to remind the staff if you ordered desert, they will forget.
Deru does veggies like no one else around, seriously - just right on the heat, the spices and when not to spice, and presentation. 5 easy stars. Not a place to go for meat - I've tried both steak and chicken there, both times surprised at the lack of flavor, and how the presentation was stellar yet the texture was slightly tough. Not truly tough, but not fresh either. 2 stars. Service is always nice - they are packed, but never waited more than 15-20 for a table, which can happen anywhere. They make up for it with hustle, courtesy, and authenticity. Overall, will go back when I'm looking for fresh, tasty, immaculately prepared vegetables. And looking forward to trying the pizza someday.
Fresh and delicious. Everything I've gotten so far has been top notch. Such great flavors with farm fresh ingredients. Salads are perfectly dressed. Today I got the polenta with mushrooms and kale. Fantastic! The only problem is it's a small location with few parking spots and a long wait time for a table. Otherwise, it's one of my favorite lunch spots.
My wife LOVES this place but I don't get it. To me it is an overrated Pasta and Co. with too few tables, and nowhere to park. I've been here 3 or 4 times and have never had a great experience. I got the pizza this time having never tried it before. It's the wood-fired style, like Tutta Bella or Mod Pizza (both of which are better). But this is supposed to be a "special" foodie kind of place right? Like with hipster service staff and visionary chefs? Why is pizza such a big part of the menu? Just 'cause they sprinkle some arugula on it? My wife got a Cauliflower Chowder which was admittedly pretty tasty. Unlike Pasta and Co, they serve beer, which is a plus but the selection is limited and boring. We got a slice of coconut cake for dessert. It was gigantic but it was a little stale. My wife and I split it but I did not finish my half, too dry. The staff is very nice at least but I would not come here if it wasn't for my wife. And believe me, I always try to talk her out of it. Every time. Never works. So we'll be back. Please don't spit in my food. I'm just being honest.
