Death in the Afternoon

Death in the Afternoon is a bar and restaurant based around the theme of Absinthe.

Many of the cocktails have Absinthe as an ingredient.

We came primarily for the food.

This place is located on Mills Ave between King Cajun and Taki Cheena in a former thrift store.

Service and atmosphere were excellent and the seating was comfortable.

I would recommend reservations especially on Friday and Saturday. I think you could do a walk in on slower days.

Dishes we tried were:

Boursin Cheese with fennel and toasted bread - rich and tasty, could have used a few more pieces of bread

Escargot in garlic herb butter - this was a special, not typically on the menu, served with toasted baguette, tomato jam, and a small salad. The combination of the tomato jam and the Escargot was an unexpected delight.

Jamon Puff Pastries - I liked these but I think the honey might be a bit much for some.

Gnocchi with rock shrimp - the menu described this as being served with mussels not rock shrimp, but apparently that's changing. That was good news to me. I love gnocchi but not mussels. Really enjoyed this.

Chorizo Burger - It was a good size burger that had Manchego cheese and peach jam. The burger was accompanied by larger size cut of fries.

We also had the pork belly which was served with a pepper sauce and grilled onion.

Everyone in our group really enjoyed our cocktails each in their own unique glasses.

We will definitely be back and keeping an eye on their social media for special dishes.
