Asa is a restaurant I will return to again and again. Owner Andrew Welch was there and eagerly went over the rating form with me, even giving me a mini-lecture about meat quality, providing the names of his farm and ranch suppliers. He describes the cuisine offered as American with Spanish and Italian influences. Every menu item we ordered was prepared to perfection and was the kind of dish I doubt I would make at home due to the complexity and uncommon ingredients -- the reason you go out to eat! There is an open kitchen. You can watch the chefs prepare the food with care and alacrity. Though higher in price than some dinner restaurants, it is fairly priced given the sourcing of the meats, originality of offerings, and quality of other ingredients. Though I don't drink alcohol, the wine list was impressive and chosen for pairing with their meals. Reservations are based on a 2-hour sitting. You are not rushed.
