Benchmark is one of my favorite neighborhood spots for a consistently delicious lunch or dinner. It kicks the standard bar slider and pizza puff menu up several notches, and it has a retractable roof that makes it perfect for mild weather.
- Hot Soft Pretzels: These are hands down my favorite menu item. They are perfect for sharing; or not.
- Sriracha Chicken Sliders: A relatively new addition to the menu. I love the slight kick of sriracha paired with a bite-sized Hawaiian bun.
- Fish Tacos-You can mix and match cod, tilapia and shrimp. I usually do the shrimp and cod.
- Mediterranean Plate- A good sampler platter with a healthy variety of grilled chicken, quinoa tabbouleh, roasted red pepper and eggplant dip, pita and avocado yogurt.
There is only one dessert and you will love and hate yourself for it at the same time. The skillet cookie is perfect. My friends and I smelled it from two tables away the last time I was there. We came close to asking for a helping.
