As the former Chef/Owner of the Compass Cafe, I am always excited to see someone who has passed through my kitchen do well. When I read that Rudy Garcia had opened his own place, I went to see for myself and am pleased to say he is indeed

I had heard great things about R Palate and went with a small group on Thursday night. It was the best dining experience I've had in a very long time. The wait staff treated us like old friends and Chef Rudy came out to check on us more

You've got to try the R Palate at happy hour for the best menu in the downtown area IMHO. I got the Spicy Mac (mmm... cheesy) for $3 and a side ceaser salad for $4, but they had like 15-20 items on

We were not disappointed by the things we heard about R Palate. The staff was friendly. We were greeted by chef Rudy Garcia. He makes a delicious assortment of appetizers ranging from duck confit, filo wrapped pockets of duck with goat
