Point b’s food boards are good for groups

The Grub Spouse noticed a new restaurant in that retail plaza near the intersection of Westland Drive and Ebenezer Drive. It’s named Point b, and The Spouse and I left The Grub House (Point a) one night last week to check it out.

Upon entering, the place struck me as being a little more high-end than I had anticipated. We were dressed on the lazy side for sure, but I don’t think we stood out from the majority of the summer-casual crowd. A server ushered us to a table for two looking out on the patio. While it was too warm to dine outside comfortably, it was uncomfortably chilly on the inside. Aesthetically, however, the spacious dining room is eye-pleasing in a semi-upscale way.

The menu is basically a one-sheeter, with offerings on both sides. It showcases more than a dozen signature cocktails and mocktails for those looking to relax with an adult beverage. Lighter dishes include appetizers like oysters (baked or raw), shrimp ceviche and crab rangoon. You might also try a Caesar or grain salad or greens topped with salmon or roasted chicken. We were lured in by the baked Brie appetizer ($13).

The baked Brie at Point b is topped with jam and accompanied by crostini slices and honey.

Getting into more substantial fare, you’ll find handhelds like a po’ boy, roast beef sandwich, a club and a taco plate. I had been craving a burger lately, so I ordered the Point (b)urger ($18), which is made with locally sourced beef, organic greens, vine tomato, caramelized bourbon onion jam and smoked cheddar on a multigrain bun. It’s served with fries. Our server gave me a choice of fry styles, and I picked shoestring.
