Jackie says: Driftwood is located in the former Corazon space on the hill. It’s open for dinner starting at 5 p.m., closed on Mondays, and serves brunch on Sundays from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. The decor is coastal casual with, you guessed it, plenty of driftwood accents. The layout is a series of small spaces, giving it an intimate feel. The menu offers Small Plates, Bigger Plates, Soup/Salad and Sweet Endings and details the ingredients for each dish. The menu covers all the bases with seafood, chicken, beef and vegan/vegetarian options. I’m a fan of small plates and they offer a nice variety. Don’t miss the Fried Green Tomato Sliders! I’d say they were my favorite thing on the menu but there are still several items I have yet to try. The wine list is well rounded, and based on the number I watched being poured at the bar, the wine flights are super popular. Prior restaurants haven’t had much luck at this location (which is weird because it’s a very walkable neighborhood), so I’m keeping my fingers crossed that Driftwood develops a loyal clientele.
