Small Plates, Big Ambitions

 

continued

It'll zoom in on those little pork sandwiches to give a taste of what Graham's does so well with its small plates. They start off with two sweet little buns, dry-grilled for a slightly crispy surface. Each gets a hearty dollop of henna-colored, cinnamon-spiced, but not-too-sweet slow-cooked pork, shredded tidily and gristle free in my sampling. A few fresh dark salad greens and a slice of tomato provide the finish. Voila!--an appealing miniature meal for just $4.95. No wonder I saw a businessman trying to order them again at lunch--off the menu at that time of day. He was accommodated, although it was funny watching him instruct the waitress how they should be served, with garnish to match what he had the night before.

This scenario echoes familiar moments from all my visits to Graham's and is part of the reason the place grew on me. Paper-covered linen cloths and fresh flowers set a pleasant atmosphere, and the bread basket includes house-made corn muffins.
