Unit B Eatery + Spirits, a new casually sophisticated speakeasy restaurant conveniently located at the Shops at Pembroke Gardens. The restaurant’s interior embraces the Unit B brand aesthetic with modern lighting, a time-lapse mural and stylish furnishings. The restaurant’s New American small plate menu fuses international flavors and techniques, while focusing on unique palate experiences. Unit B Eatery + Spirits also encompasses a gorgeous bar, with hand-crafted cocktails and creative libations. After taking in the great ambiance, my guest and I were seated by the hostess and we were ready to try out their cocktails. We ordered the Time For You Babe, which is hand-crafted with a delicious combination of coconut rum, guava, fresh lime, and an Italian herbal liqueur, Amaro Lucano. It has a sweet taste from the coconut rum and the guava, but has a nice citrusy taste from the lime on the back end.
After making a toast to a fabulous evening and sipping on our lip-smacking drinks, we were ready to order an appetizer. We decided to order the Crispy Calamari, it’s fried calamari served on a plate with lime salt, saffron aioli, and a lemon wedge to sprinkle on top of the calamari. Up next was the main entrée, I ordered the Slow Braised Short Rib made with a savory of Bordeaux wine reduction and paired with corn soufflé and grilled garlic broccolini. The Slow Braised Short Rib was soft and full of flavor. The corn soufflé was very tasty and complemented the flavor and texture of the short rib. The garlic broccolini was delicious as well. My guest ordered the very popular Oxtail Risotto. This dish comes with sautéed kale, shaved Parmesan, and natural jus. My guest and I also shared a side of Truffle Mac & Cheese. This concoction will have you craving for more once you get a taste.
After having such a satisfying meal, we were ready for dessert. Upon looking at their dessert menu, they have listed three appealing desserts such as their Coconut Rum Cake which comes with a scoop of piña colada ice cream and coconut Chantilly. Another option is the Date Cake that comes with crème fraiche ice cream and toffee sauce. As a third option is Ice Cream. You can order the chef’s weekly special. We decided to try the chef’s weekly special ice cream which was cereal and milk. It was creamy and reminded me of my childhood cereal. It was very satiating!
