I’m so glad I discovered Fin & Filet! This restaurant is tucked away in a charming red brick building just diagonal from my office building! I’ve driven by it hundreds of times and never known it was there! This historical building was first home to a family grocery store in 1927, but ever since 2015, it’s been a restaurant.
Back patio - there be my B of A building in the background looming over all.
Happy hour is 4-6 Monday thru Friday. Half price appetizers but full flavor - these are truly 4-star dishes with the most elegant presentation and a decadent, rich taste. I ordered the pork belly, which came with greens and a blackberry on top. Doesn’t this look dessert-ish?
It was delicious, but a little too fatty for me. (I don’t know what I expected with a name referencing the enormous gut of a pig)
The Brussels sprouts were the absolute best thing here!!! I'm normally not a huge fan of the green little devils, but when they are braised with a white wine sauce, you can’t help but love them. Mmmm. New project to recreate at home!
My drink was a S’more martini – topped with a humongous roasted marshmallow, rimmed with graham cracker crumbs & caramel (which some loon with dry fingertips attempted to steal!) In the drink itself was Irish cream which is all I needed to hear. Sooo good.
This is a jalapeno/watermelon margarita rimmed with sugar & jalapeno – just the right amount of spice!
Ahi tartare - couldn't bring myself to try this. Just not a fishy girl yet.
I didn't try this coconut shrimp either, but isn't it pretty?
Bone marrow – now I can say I’ve tried it and I won’t be trying it again. In Bible times it was a delicacy but I’m not living in those times and it wasn’t delicate to me. Everything around it tasted fantastic, however.
I really love the ambiance in here. Brick walls, soft lighting and an awesome picture of the Reno skyline.
On the side there is this mural:
Another local gem!!
