After spending the day driving from Nevada to Oregon, I was famished. Staying in Sutherlin (because there wasn't anything anywhere else available, but that turned out to be okay). My mental bar was set pretty low, considering how small Sutherlin was. I did not anticipate finding such an awesome dinner in a cute little deli. The dinner special was listed as Blackened New York Steak topped with herbed creme fraiche, served with sautéed rapini and mashed taters.
It was unbelievably good. From presentation, to temperature, to flavor....all excellent. The Chef even came out and asked me what I thought about it (which was a very nice touch). The rapini, not a common "side" if you will, really set off the meat. The combination of slightly bitter greens and almost sweet smokey flavor of the meat was great. It was just good. And for dessert I bought a bag of brownie bites (for $3) that lasted me 3 days. And they were excellent as well. The deli has a low-key decor and outdoor dining (with a garden). Pretty cool.
If you find yourself in Sutherlin, check Nellie's facebook page and see what the special of the day is. In my opinion, you will not be disappointed. I would definitely go back, again and again!!
