The menu featured a lot of small plates, so we shared the bbq okra with meyer lemon aioli and the grilled bacon with bosc pear and aged sherry vinegar. Both plates were indeed very small but quite flavorful. I think the okra was my favorite.
My entree was a good size though and it was very, very tasty. It’s not on the regular menu and I can’t remember all the details, but I believe this salmon was served over pureed parsnips with a fig jam. Matt had a wonderful steak too!!
We said our goodbyes right after dinner because my mom had an early AM flight, and Matt and I had plans to be at a bar for kickoff at 11am! People have been telling me how fun and crazy the Texas – OU rivalry weekend is and fun it was! It actually wasn’t as crazy crowded as I had thought it would be, but that might have just been related to where we watched the game.
I ordered my very first bloody mary to start. After drinking three with no headache at all, I must say they are a new favorite! Ok, that’s probably un-related to the bloody mary, but I was glad my body cooperated with day drinking. It was so much fun!!
I guess it was kind of a big deal that Texas won the game, so we continued on to another bar for celebratory beers and snacks afterwards.
Matt and I called it a day around 3pm and caught up on Revenge episodes. We ventured out for a burger on Saturday night and then went to bed embarrassingly early.
We ended the weekend at a friend’s birthday party on Sunday afternoon where we enjoyed more burgers and seasonal beers! It’s alllmost time to start drinking autumn beers here in Dallas. I’d say we’re a good month behind the rest of the country with the whole fall thing. I’m getting pretty excited because fall also means it’s time for birthday cake. Exciting week ahead!!!
