Transcript ~r HOUSTON VOICE www.houston voice.com AUGUST 2, 2002 17 dining kathreen lee Cherryhurst Grill provides pleasant atmosphere, tasty dishes with only a little room for improvement Subtle restaurant pleases ENSCONCED IN THE OAK-LINED residential Cherryhurst community in the center of Montrose, the small new neighborhood restaurant, the Cherryhurst Grill, can easily be missed by the casual passerby Its modest black awning and large window storefront does not snare one's immediate attention like the more colorful and familiar Domino's Pizza nearby But upon just brief inspection, the small, intimate and cozy atmosphere of the Cherryhurst Grill calmly beckons those in the mood for a warm savory meal. Formerly Cole's Restaurant, the Cherryhurst Grill is still managed by one of its previous owners and maintains the same service staff and chef. Known as "Mama," the chef has had extensive previous experience and was part of the original kitchen staff at La Strada's. The menu is varied without particular emphasis on any type of cuisine, and although the entree list is a bit meat-heavy vegetarians still have a few salad and pasta options. For example, fresh squash, zucchini, asparagus, portabella mushrooms, and ricot- ta and mozzarella cheeses are baked together within the pliant folds of pasta ribbons and topped with a flavorful tomato basil sauce to create a sumptuous Vegetarian Lasagna ($10). The portions are huge, with the corners of one large cubic serving banking the sides of the substantial serving bowl. The only complaint was that the tomato basil sauce, while flavorful, was a bit thin and easily ran off the lasagna — an easily remediable factor. The dish would have been perfect if a thicker tomato based sauce richly coated each bite of fresh vegetables and piquant cheese. Fresh squash, zucchini, asparagus, portabello mushrooms, and ricotta and mozzarella cheeses are baked together within the pliant folds of pasta ribbons and topped with a flavorful tomato basil sauce to create a sumptuous Vegetarian Lasagna. CHERRYHURST GRILL OFFERS A Create-Your-Own-Pasta where you can choose your own adventure by matching various basic step ingredients. To start, you choose your pasta — linguini or penne. Then you select from four different sauce options: marinara, meat, vodka cream, or basil pesto. From there, your choice of pasta fixings include: sun dried tomatoes, pine nuts, black olives, basil, tomatoes, spinach, mushrooms, carrots, chicken, tuna, shrimp, or crab fingers ($8.2^$18.75). Although the vodka cream sauce sounded decadently rich, I decided to thwart the impending coronary and The Art of Food and Intimacy TkCrHERRVrlURST Cmll opted for the he-althier marinara. Once again, while all the ingredients were incredibly fresh and complemented each other perfectly, the marinara sauce was a bit runny and pooled at the trough of the bowl. However, the pine nuts were roasted perfectly for a combination of its natural tastes with the musky burnt flavor. While not on the menu, the ceviche is a common specials item. A fresh cilantro- guacamole blend topped a zesty mix of diced shrimp, scallops, whitefish and chopped onions swimming in a sharp vinegar bath. The ceviche lacked the tangy lime or lemon citrus flavor crucial to eliminating fish oil, and therefore had a lingering fishy taste, which unfortunately slightly marred the otherwise tasty dish. ONE DISH I WOULD PARTICULARLY recommend is the Coconut Shrimp ($14..50). Large shelled shrimp Eire swathed in egg, batter and shredded coconut and lightly fried. The preparation does not remove any of the coconut's natural flavors, and the fried batter provides a rough texture to complement the smooth succulent shrimp The dish is served with a pineapple mango salsa for dipping, but the overly sweet sauce jarred with the coconut flavor, and I would advise you to just ignore its presence. Most of the desserts are imported from DaCapo's or Amy's Ice Cream in Austin. However, the Cherryhurst Grill prepares its own homemade blueberry sauce to pour over Amy's vanilla malt ice cream. I was excited to try a homemade specialty, but unfortunately, the blueberry sauce was barely noticeable and I found myself trying to scoop larger and larger quantities of it to just get a sense of its flavor. With its prime location in the heart of Montrose, this neighborhood restaurant offers its patrons a wonderful cozy atmosphere to enjoy a delightful meal (with a few minor tweaks needed here and there) and pleasant company.
