Food 101 At Highlands - CLOSED
1397 N Highland Avenue NE

Really flavorful food with a local emphasis. The tuna melt was amazing, and I hate mayonnaise. The sliders are plenty for a meal, and the spices in the sauce are fantastic. The big oven fries were so-so, but I suspect that's by comparison with the main dish.
The atmosphere was nice and relaxed for lunch, but I expect you could show up in nice evening attire and not feel out of place at all. The exposed brick walls, always a bonus, were covered with art from a gallery next door. The servers were spot on, and they definitely have a stake in the place. (Ask about what covered the walls previously…)
I'll be back, but I doubt if I'll need to modify the review beyond heaping more praise on a place that tries to support local producers. And the Monday evening brunch sounds like fun.
