Eat, Drink, Dance - Karma Comes to Ponte Vedra
I stopped in for lunch on Saturday and really liked what I saw AND tasted. The staff were friendly and full of suggestions - what's good, what to have with it, what each evening's live music performances are like.
They've been open about a month now. Dinner and late night is their main scene, but they are open from 11 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday, and the bars have a couple flatscreens - so you can watch the game in style.
Check out their website for a 360 view of the decor, and some tantalizing shots of the food. I'm ready to head back there!
On my first trip I had to try the Fried Spring Roll with hoisin roast pork filling and sweet chili and plum dipping sauces. ($4.95) - the pork had great flavor - it was a little dry (which helps with frying the wrapper) but the sweet chili sauce really made the dish come together.
Parisian Mussel Pot en fritte - Prince Edward Island mussels served in a garlic white wine broth, with a little bucket of crispy french fries. ($12.95)
I asked for mayo to dip my fries, which they gladly provided, along with a little bowl of fresh ground horseradish in melted butter for dipping the mussels - one of those handy waitstaff suggestions that turned out to be a revelation to me. I'll always eat them that way now.
Saturday and Sunday they also have a brunch menu - with two for one mimosas, poinsettias, blood marys, etc. - and there is a late night menu for after hours noshing - Happy hour from 5-7, nightly drink specials.
Oh, and they clear out some of the tables after dinner service, to make room for dancing to the live music. Hmmm. I could use a little more life in my nights. See you at Karma!
