My former student Jeff directed me to Moonshine. I guess I didn't inflict any long term damage on him in my class because his recommendation turned out to be very pleasant. It's located in an old house near the convention center. It has a lively atmosphere with quite a few younguns on the night I visited.
I started with Moonshine's version of a tomato and mozzarella salad. It turned out to be a pleasant variation on the Italian classic, particularly with its dressing.
My salmon was served on its own cedar plank. Its sauce combined a bit of sweetness and just enough heat to complement. The salmon itself had a bit of crunch on the outside and very tender, moist meat in the middle.
:For dessert I sampled their apple pie a la mode. It's an open pie with a soft, pillowy, bready sort of crust. The filling is with with apple and a bit of caramel.
