Some of us share blood
Others share a home
Some share a name
But tonight, we all shared everything!
We decided to bar hop rather than put all of our eggs in one basket so we could try as many restaurants as possible. And then within each location, we couldn’t decide on a dish to call our own – so we just shared everything. It worked brilliantly.
Natalia goes to school here in Newport – it is always fun to meet new friends!
The boys got beers, the girls got waters
And the bag of seafood donuts – little pillows of sweet dough with embedded flecks of scallop, lobster and shrimp – were better than they sounded
After some conversation and slurping down the last of course I, we headed to Diego’s, modern Mexican cuisine.
The restaurant was super small and cozy and we had impeccable service! Very attentive onion-awareness staff ; )
Matt A. spotted something for me when he glanced at the menu this afternoon:
The Three B’s Manhattan
Bourbon, Butter and Bacon make this Manhattan a cocktail, meal, dessert or all three? Jim Beam Bourbon is infused with butter and shaken with pechaud Bitters, sweet vermouth and a dash of maple syrup. Served chilled and straight up with a chocolate covered bacon garnish
Will any drink EVER live up to this one again!!? That chocolate bacon strip was the best thing I ate all weekend.
Larbs + Matt oogling over it!
We were so enamored by the menu, we decided to share 3 entrees that were at the top of each of our lists:
Made with shredded pork, pineapple salsa, black beans, red pepper & spicy Baja aioli.
WOW. Was this ever incredible!! Two slices for each.
Next up we shared the Catch Of The Day Salad with peppers, jicama and a blackened fish. The fish was a little rare for my liking, but I loved the greens. Obviously!
Lastly, we shared the fish tacos – loaded- 3 ways. That means two tacos, split. Worked perfectly! These were great as well.
Our first two courses were amazing, but of course we didn’t want the night to end. I was happy with my bacon chocolate for dessert, but Larbs was itching for something more, so we ended the night at Fluke Wine Bar.
The four of us shared sips from this Tawny Port (just one sip will do!)
It took us FOREVER to decide on a dessert, but we finally settled on…
S’Mores for Matt A. and me
And Sweet Potato Pie with a whipped cream log for Larbs and my Matt
But of course, we all shared!
And now we’re all sharing a hotel room!
