Archive for the ‘Eating Out’ Category

The Cat has a semi-homebound client that she has been delivering her prescriptions for. Recently, the client has had some health issues that kept her on pretty much a liquid diet.

Client finally was cleared by her doctor to eat again, The Cat thought she might like a real food meal, and some company. Unfortunately, client suffered a setback (not eating related) and cancelled lunch.

The Mouse and The Cat decided to pick up food and drop it off so at least she has something to eat, and since we were there, might as well eat too.



Chicken Consomme

Standard complimentary starters at the restaurant. The Mouse loves the popovers. Nom!

The Mouse’s Bowl

Red and golden beets, sweet onions, edamame, radish, carrots, avocado, Japanese pickled daikon, furikake brown rice, sesame dressing (menu description)

This dish was good, vegetarian, ordered another for The Cat’s client. Too bad there were no simmered shiitake mushrooms, just a bit of umami.

The Cat’s Plate

Misoyaki Kona kampachi, multigrain rice, garlic ginger choy sum, king crab namasu, kabayaki butter (menu description).

The Cat Ended the Meal with Coffee

Packed up chicken consomme, three popovers, and the beet bowl for the client. very appreciative. The Cat did good.

Enjoy. Eat well.

Friend’s (and primary care physician’s) b-day. He likes beer, but since it’s lunch, we tried to keep it celebratory yet “functional”. The Mouse looked for a venue that served flights (smaller pulls of beer). Ended up here.


The highlights:

Initial Flight

House brew, dark beer, hard cider. The Mouse forgot what was ordered. Three pages of selection.

The Mouse’s Hard Cider

Excellent on a hot day. The Mouse likes.

Descriptions off of the menu:

Deviled Eggs

Truffle Chive Deviled Eggs Black Truffle Aioli.

Pork Shanks

“Lechon Style” Pig Wings Local Tomato, Onion, Green Onion, Vinegar.

Braised Short Rib

Root Beer Braised Short Rib Creamy Polenta, Roasted Sweet and Sour Peppers.

The short ribs? The Mouse really likes, socks off. Definitely going back for this one, not sharing next time. 😉

Brownie and Ice Cream

A bomb in a good way: Irish Car Bomb Chocolate Stout Brownie, Guinness Gelato, Bailey’s Anglaise, Jameson Caramel.

So good, we ordered additional scoops of the Guinness gelato.

The Mouse had to use up his carry supply of lactase pills, but worth it. 🙂

Happy B-Day Dr B!

Enjoy. Eat well.

Old Menu :(

The Cat’s lunch with client.

Ever since The Cat returned from the French Quarter, she’s been jonesing for po’ boy sandwiches.

Planned on a “rich-boy” (Tempura Oysters & Shrimp, Pickles, Slaw, Yuzu Kosho Tartar), think “upscaled” “po’ boy”.

Client also wanted to try their crispy shrimp gyoza.

Turns out the online menu is old (at least two chefs ago), rich-boy no longer offered, and crispy shrimp gyoza for dinner only. Boo!

They “settled” with …

Chopped Salad

Bacon, Tomato, Avocado, Parmesan, Garlic Shrimp, Asian Goddess.

The Mouse didn’t taste, but kinda sad looking. Just my opinion.

Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Cauliflower

Golden Raisin, Pine Nuts, Balsamic. Dunno about the taste, The Cat didn’t say.

Win some lose some. At least update the menu. Sigh.

Enjoy. Eat well.
