McEwen's Southwestern fusion style menu and hip yet comfortable setting with a granite bar, high ceilings, exposed brick, warm lighting and local artists' work decorating the walls attracts a crowd for lunch and dinner. Eating in the separate bar area is a nice option for singletons. For those looking for a more unique experience, consider dining in the bistro's wine cellar which is available for parties of 8 to 18.
The lunch menu is more café casual as compared to dinner. Daily soup, entrée and side specials are offered in addition to the regular menus. Salad eaters with appreciate the plentiful selection including a Caesar (with chicken, tuna or beef tenderloin), the "jungle of greens" with napa cabbage, daikon radish, peppers, herbs (can add protein), and the salad Nicoise. The sandwich offering is upscale and offers selections for vegetarians and carnivores. Examples include grilled yellow fin tuna, grilled chicken breast, grilled portabella, roasted turkey and roast beef. The daily fish special, roasted chicken, grilled tuna and a pecan crusted pork chop round out lunch's diverse offerings. Dinner ups the gourmet quotient with starters like bbq duck enchiladas, ceviche, and duo tartar of tuna and beef. Light eaters may want to pair an appetizer with a starter salad. However, the daily fish special, pan seared scallops (subbing out the cheddar grits) grilled swordfish, or pan seared tuna may do the trick. Other hearty and uniquely Southern style entrées include, grilled shrimp with buckwheat-goat cheese waffles, sweet potato crusted catfish and grilled beef tenderloin with a chipotle glaze.
