I don’t get together with my girlfriends for dinner nearly enough. I think you need a good mix and male and female vibes in your life.
We like this spot year round because of it’s beautiful outdoor patio, private dining room, bar and a variety of seating options. I tend to notice my conversations are always a bit better with I’m inspired by the decor. Needless to say, I become quite chatty in this luxe environment.
A Wednesday evening cheers just because!
As a fellow Bourbon Babe, I can’t deny what a great selection of whiskey and bourbons they house.
Oh you know, just having a Lady & the Tramp moment! haha
I believe this menu is set in my favorite font, Neutra Face, I can definitely appreciate a well type set menu (we’ve all seen our share of design disasters).
I usually prefer to wear something simple, casual yet slightly refined to an early dinner. My dress is stretchy denim paired with lace up sandals and a camel bag. I love Vanessa’s denim and black pairing mixed with a little textured straw.
Our Drink selections:
Cuffs & Buttons: Loved this one because they tilt the glass during the ice freezing process making an angular frozen block on the side of your cup. I mean if that’s not fancy, what is?! We also had the spicy margarita and martini.
*note: the martini was super easy to drink, normally they get a bad rap but this was easy to get flowing.
Here’s what we ate in order:
Smoked Trout Salad: Avocado, gold beets, crème fraiche, horseradish, pickled red onions
Heirloom Tomatoes: Burrata, pluot, maldon, olive oil
New Zealand King Salmon: Japanese eggplant, romano beans, tomato vinaigrette, black olive aioli. *note: this salmon was ridiculously delicious and buttery. I will add, I know good salmon. I grew eating freshly caught salmon from fisherman father. He needs to try this one and give his 411.
Ricotta Ravioli with Lemon & Mint: Summer squash, squash blossoms, cherry tomato (the pasta is made fresh across the street at the bakery–how cool is that?)
If it’s been far too long since you’ve seen your gals, this is a great spot to re-connect and feast your eyes on the beautiful culinary and decor.
I would also suggest this spot, when your hard to impress out of town friend is visiting (come on you know we all have that friend ha!)
