We went to Stone Mad Pub, Restaurant, and Bocce for the first time. First impressions? Stone - lots and lots of stone. I have never in my life seen so much stonework in one place in my entire life. Why is that significant? My father is a masonry contractor.
For appetizer, we ordered the brie wrapped in phyllo with strawberry sauce. Regina and I split a burger with blue cheese and side of the home fries. The burger was good, the potatoes were not. The potatoes were more soggy than crispy and had little to no taste. Stone Mad doesn't have a deep fryer, which I think is great, but I think some rosemary or garlic would have gone a long way to improve things. The bocce ball, which is a piece of chocolate cake covered with chocolate ganache, with bocce ball score marks in it. Not only was it good, but the idea was original.
