Herban Fare

This is a small place in the old karaoke bar a block off of the Woodstock square. Not as much vegetarian stuff as I would expect from the name, but good.

Went with three people. Small tables, close — just like in the city! I had beef and pasta ($15), wife had the seafood stew ($19) with some lobster and scallops, and Sara had the risotto. Everyone liked it. My only gripe is similar to other small places. It is very intimate, but you cannot talk if it is busy. Loud. Old places with tin ceilings are cool to look at but hard to hear in. I would recommend some wall hangings or anechoic foam on the wall.

Bonus: It was Wednesday, and the waiter informed us it was 1/2 price wine day, so we had a nice red Primo Rosso ($24) with dinner. I do like bottles better, and the price was right.

Herban Fare. 125 East Calhoun Street, Woodstock, Ill.
