When: 2011

A little neighborhood place that serves good, almost comfort food.

Directions: On Greenwich Avenue near West 12th street (directions are on their website).

We dined at Good on a Saturday in September and before I continue the name of the restaurant alone created all sorts of "you had to be there" type jokes (e.g., don't get in a cab and ask the driver to take you to "the good restaurant," you may get slapped).

To start, we were running late so called and they were very accommodating when I explained we'd be about 15 minutes late for our reservation, no attitude at all which was nice.

Upon arrival, they set our table (basically breaking it off from an eight top as we decided to eat inside and not outside) and seated us within a couple of minutes. It's not a large restaurant, so the room is intimate with lots of candles and a good soundtrack playing but not too loud that you can't easily carry-on a conversation.

We started with the soup of the day, a fresh vegetable chowder that was delicious and a farro salad, also very good. We didn't have any cocktails but instead ordered a bottle of northern coast California Pinot from their wine list (can't recall which).

For our entrees, we had the fish tacos (tilapia was the fish of the day), and braised pork shoulder with a side of grits topped with mushrooms and medjool dates. Both dishes were delicious.

We skipped dessert and with tip the bill came to $116.

I'd definitely return to the restaurant as the menu seems to change seasonally, and they also offer lunch, and brunch which I wouldn't mind trying. It's just a good (as my husband jokes, "not great"), local, neighborhood place offering decent food in a pretty setting.
