Correction: Much to my dismay, I found out the hard way last night that the Point Pinos Grill has dropped their small bites menu. Apparently small bites are out and supper is in–the early evening menu is now limited to the prix fixe nightly supper selection.
But fret not, apparently many of these small bites (though sadly not the stuffed squash blossoms) are featured on their lunch menu as appetizers.
And if you’re not in the mood for a full supper at the Point Pinos Grill, don’t forget they also serve up a selection of small plates in the afternoons, from lunch until they close at dusk.
The Point Pinos Grill never comes to mind when I’m looking for dinner, honestly, but with the new supper menu and some intriguing small bites, I think I’ll have to swing by one of these nights.
Check out the eclectic menu of small plates and sharing plates for yourself below the fold.
