lunch was a delight from start to finish. Innovative menu excellent food quality full of flavor. I never wanted to leave and we were not rushed along. The avocado BLT was a celebration with each bite. The potato chips were just a delight. Crème trio was a joy and ice coffee full flavored robust and creamy. I will go back over and over again! This is not to be missed!

A great New American cuisine addition to Chelsea. I had dinner there last night and everything was great. The first thing you notice is that all the dishes are takes on basic fare but each has their own special sauce or garnish with extra spice or flavor that blends perfectly. The manager and waitstaff were excellent, very attentive, and knew the menu inside and out. The warm garlic Naan-like pillow bread they bring to the table is great and the sweetness of the white raisin herb aioli helps cut the garlic flavor. I had the lump crab cake as an appetizer. It was high quality and prefect consistency served with a sweet orange sauce and green herb cream on the side. There were some greens on top that complemented the flavor of the crab well. For the entree I had their fish and chips special. The fish was lightly beer battered and came with a dollop of tartar sauce with a little malt vinegar underneath. The flavors all blended great. The standing ring of french fries was an interesting presentation if a little overcooked, but when soaked in the vinegar were delicious. There were a few endive stalks and cherry tomatoes around the fries with a little dressing that were a nice little side salad to break the heaviness of the fish and chips. I had to try a side of their mac and cheese which was my highlight of the night. There must have been a blend of cheeses and cream, coated with a little Parmesan and then broiled au-gratin. It could have been an entree by itself. For dessert I had the chocolate souffle with creme anglaise. It takes a while to prepare so make sure you give them notice, but it's worth the wait. The menu is varied with a nice selection of meats and seafood as well, all with their own special spin. There are a few vegetarian options but not many, basically limited to pastas. I did taste the mushroom gnocchi which was cooked perfectly and the mushroom sauce was rich but light. Highpoint is a little upscale and pricey, but definitely worth the occasional visit or a good place to bring friends or a date for that special dinner. It's not pretentious and the decor is tastefully done and quite comfortable and welcoming. They also have two TV's over their bar with Dish Network for watching a game after work or on a weekend while having drinks. I had a great dinner experience at Highpoint and I'm looking forward to trying their brunch sometime.

i stumbled across highpoint and noticed they had brunch today. i think theve only been open for a week or so i was suprised to see them moving along to quickly. I sarted with a french press coffee and had the home-made "dunk your own" donuts, they were a perfect starter. then i had a different but wonerful egg dish with chicken apple sausage, potato pancake, goat cheese and truffle essence. the food was delish! and i loved the atmosphere i was shocked with the prices they were VERY affordable esp for the area up and comming. will return for drinks and dinner soon!
