For dinner I had a braised pork and cheddar and kristy had the burger. both were quite good. You can tell the kitchen still needs some fine tuning. I was supposed to have mustard fries and Kristy garlic fries, but they were the same. Nonetheless, I enjoyed the food and expect it to improve.
Slate is nice place to grab a drink or two at the bar before a night out. If you want a laid back night with a some friends give it a go. It could be a nice addition to neighborhood.
I hope they keep the menu small and focused, but change every few months.
Interesting side note, the owner rebuilt the place by himself. Took him about a year. Check it out.
