I recently got the chance to stop by Tinker Street to enjoy dinner and sample their fall menu. I’m a big fan of restaurants that update and change their menus every so often, especially when they incorporate seasonal ingredients.
Tinker Street is located downtown at the corner of 16th and New Jersey St. Their menu includes fresh, local ingredients and they offer a variety of vegetarian and vegan options.
We started out with a couple of appetizers, including the Mushroom Bruschetta and the Brussel Sprouts. I highly recommend trying the Mushroom Bruschetta, it was definitely my favorite. It’s made of Shamrock Farm’s mushrooms, sweet corn, arugula, black garlic aioli, and truffled golden syrup.
I loved seeing all the autumn ingredients on the entree list, as well as how clearly the items are marked gluten-free, vegan, etc. with the ability to add on a protein option. Quite a few of us foodies chose the Pumpkin Gnocchi for dinner, and it didn’t disappoint. It’s made up of pumpkin pesto, pumpkin puree, pumpkin seed oil, brown butter, sage and parmesan. Our server recommended to top it off with their sirloin and I’m so glad I did!
For dessert I was torn between trying the Apple Dutch Baby, and the Pumpkin Creme Brulee. I went with the Apple Dutch Baby, which was made up of honeycrisp apples, ginger, salted caramel, and topped with whipped cream and thyme. They had so many great fall options that I honestly could have tried them all.
Tinker Street’s ambiance is the perfect spot for an intimate date night, or a quiet get together with a group of friends. They also have a patio that has been completely transformed and heated to cater the cooler seasons.
Overall, I was extremely impressed with the fall menu, and everything about Tinker Street in general. I seriously can’t believe this was my first time stopping in, but I do know I’ll definitely be back!
