….to Clarklewis I go.
Thursday night Michael and I went to Clarklewis for happy hour after work. I’m liking these Thursday night Date Nights. It’s nice to sit across the table from each other and talk. Since our kitchen is under construction we don’t usually sit across from each other for meals (which sucks).
I ordered the house white. I think it was a Pinot Gris. It was very dry and not sweet at all but it went really well with the rest of the food we ordered. First up: the salad with sherry vinaigrette. It was a little dry.
Next we split the Parmesan balls. I don’t know what they were called now. They were light, airy and small. I liked them. The lemon zest in it was refreshing. It made me crave Meriwether’s risotto balls.
The winner of the night was the Mac n’ Cheese with taleggio cheese and breadcrumbs. Loved it! It was cream and flavorful. I’ve never had that cheese before and it was tasty–similar to white cheddar. We split that and then split the small wood fire grilled hamburger with blue cheese.
It was a good night. Romantic dinner for two. Then this morning Michael woke me up with news of a Tsunami warning in Oregon. Um what? The footage of the earthquake in Japan is devastating. I hope they are all okay there. Thinking of Amanda in Okinawa!
