I've searched, but I can't seem to find a web site for this place. So, I'll try to write about the dishes from memory (with no help from an on-line menu).

Large, vibrant space from which they also sell wine.

Menu is mainly "small" dishes with about six "large" dishes for those who prefer an entree-sized portion.

Our table of six had the following (sharing most):

duck confit (2)
fresh-cut fries
frisee salad
NC tuna with curry sauce and papadam (or, "puppodum") (2)
assorted cheeses with onion relish and apricot marmalade (2)
home-cured olives
charcuterie plate
ratatouille
calamari fritte
scallops (2)
apple strudel with a star anise caramel sauce
pots de creme of chocolate and rose water (2)
pear tartin with cinnamon ice cream

The only dish that was not completely devoured was the calamari: we felt it was too greasy.

If you add it all up, it worked out to about three plates per person. Bill was about $43 per person, 2 bottles of wine included, before gratuity.

Service was great and we would certainly return.

My wife and I were looking for something new to try on a Saturday night, and we picked a winner. We showed up about 6:45 on a Saturday and had no trouble getting a table. Good timing as things started picking up after 7pm. Their staff was very friendly and attentive, and very happy to make recommendations. To be clear, Glasshalffull is not traditional Tapas, but serves basically an all appetizer type menu. Prices ranged from $4 to $14 (filet mignon). Our favorite was a special (Hoisin ribs), but we enjoyed each of the 6 plates we tried. Overall, very reasonably priced, including their wine and beer selections. While it was just to 2 of us for our first visit, it is definitely a place that would be fun to go to with a group of friends.

Pros: Variety and quality of food and wine

Cons: None

Editorial from

The handsomely designed Glasshalfull combines a bistro, bar and wine boutique in a restored historic building. The bistro's original menu offered small plates exclusively, but has been updated to include dinner-size portions of chef Adam…
