Garlics Restaurant uses the potent herb in practically every dish on the menu, from garlic bisque and garlic chicken, to garlic martinis, garlic ice cream, and even cloves dipped in chocolate.
Executive Chef Wade Fitzgerald says garlic can be smoked, roasted, fried, and candied, among other preparations, so its easy to use on everything.
He says their garlic ice cream, which includes both roasted and pureed garlic, has some bite, and is a hit or miss with patrons.
Although it seems like Garlics Restaurant would reek, Fitzgerald says thats not the case.
Since the restaurant runs an in-house bakery, the aroma inside isnt riddled with garlic, but instead smells of fresh breads, stocks, and in Fitzgeralds words, good home cooking.
Still, popping a breath mint never hurts.
Garlics makes their own breath-freshening candies and cookies that patrons can chomp on after their meals.
Fitzgerald says the restaurant isnt just for garlic lovers and that theres something for everyone on the menu, except for maybe vampires.
