One Fifth Romance Languages
Pasta & seafood in a former church
European · Montrose · $$$$
Chris Shepherd (Underbelly) expands his presence in Montrose with this swanky European-inspired kitchen serving a nose-to-tail menu of Spanish, French and Italian dishes like pasta, paella and suckling pig plus raw bar items alongside wine and craft cocktails. Soft greens, blues and purples accentuate the circa-1927 former church, while 19 custom art pieces appear throughout and airy fabric drapes from above; the space also includes a choir loft for service and private events.

With a dim lit setting the place really asserts the romance language theme. The quality of the food is great as they cover most of the European countries and represent them well in their menu and drink selection. Everything was cooked well and portions were large enough each dish could easily be meant for 2 people. Assuming you get every course including some drinks, bill will probably be around ~120 pp which is probably about right for the quality. Worth a visit before they switch to the next concept in a couple months.

This place was highly recommend by a friend. It is nice, a bit tight on the tables but nice atmosphere. Wine selection was adequate but pricy. Food is a bit challenging to decipher. Main dishes are to expensive and not as good as appetizers. We had a paella that was pasta based, nothing like a real paella, quite greasy, not worth the experiment, to expensive . Service was nice but not sure I am coming back.

Great restaurant in the old Mark's building. Excellent cocktail list and also high quality execution of the basics. Matthew Pridgen is a great sommelier and has an interesting and well done wine list. The food is fantastic. It's a small menu but everything I've tried is great. The paella is a must have. The snapper is a lighter family style seafood fish. Desserts are good. I've eaten at the bar, at a table, and in the private Bell Tower room. All unique experiences and all great.
