Hub Restaurant & Creamery

Over the past couple of weeks, I have heard several people say that they were going to “the hub” to get some great food.  So, of course, I had to try it out.  I love the look and the vibe of the restaurant.  The decor is fun, and the atmosphere is laid back.  We met a small group there, so there was plenty of good conversation and good eating!

I ordered the vegchetta, which was grilled vegetables, caramelized onions, pesto goat cheese, portabello, arugula, shallot vinaigrette, and ciabatta.  I love veggies, but they are not seasoned well sometimes. There is a method for seasoning them just right without the fat and salt.  These vegetables were cooked just right.  They had the right texture, great flavor, and were filling.  This was a huge sandwich! I could barely bite the entire sandwich.  It was delicious.

20131005_160740I love the decor in this restaurant.  I didn’t notice the lamps hanging upside down from the ceiling until one of the guests brought it to my attention.  This was a neat feature.
