Twelves Grill & Cafe in the old Sovereign Bank Building in West Grove, feels like a real find out in the middle of the country. Not much fine dining to be had in West Grove, before Tim & Kristin Smith’s Twelves Grill & Cafe opened their friendly and relaxed BYOB offering up what they call unique American cuisine. Their menus feature fresh, local and organic ingredients served simply. They have a cafe and lunch menu, the dinner menu with daily specials and a $25 three course, Prix Fixe Dinner menu on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. Service is friendly and attentive and the food does not disappoint. Tim, the chef, worked at Dilworthtown Inn, The Farmhouse Restaurant and the Back Burner in Hockessin before bringing his laid-back culinary style to West Grove. Our table sampled his Crispy Fried Oysters and two different soups for starters. For our entrees we had Seared Day Boat Scallops, Red Wine Braised Beef Short Ribs, the Meat Loaf special and Pan Seared Wild Skate from the Prix Fixe menu. Tasty desserts and Cappuccinos capped off the meal. Everyone enjoyed the outing and finding the place wasn’t difficult using directions from their web site. Looking for something new, albeit a bit of a drive, give the Twelves Grill & Cafe a try. They left the accent off Cafe and put it on the food. Reservations are not required, but are recommended.
