Never let it be said that my trainer isn’t creative. The last workout of 2015 contained lots of things we have done throughout the year (over 30 to be exact) and each task had to be repeated 15 times. I think she must be clairvoyant and knew that I would be sucking down a rather extravagant dinner, so she thought she had better make it good.
Tonight I celebrated the new year a little early with two of the best friends a girl could ask for–my Momtourage. We went to a new-to-us restaurant called The Corner Kitchen. I cannot say enough good things about the experience. The mismatched fine China, the butcher block table tops and the wait staff dressed in plaid shirts set a great vibe. I loved the way the inside of a once seedy college bar had been transformed into a fun eatery.
The menu was varied and we tried several things on it. Everything was delicious. My duck carbonara pasta was the small order (I loved having that option!) and I paired it with the special small plate of the night–amazing Brussels sprouts. So. Good.
Dessert menu also did not disappoint. The three of us shared an order of chocolate mousse and an order of butterscotch pudding. Both house made right down to the whipped cream.
These are the types of restaurants that should be rewarded with your patronage. Careful preparation of fresh ingredients. You cannot beat that and the prices were extremely reasonable. We divided the bill into thirds and each paid $30–and that’s with drinks and desserts.
I am not sure I will need to eat again until sometime next year. (See what I did there?)
