One amazing thing about having Great Harvest here training us for the next few weeks? We get to see the town through their eyes! And while we’re the local hosts, we actually are sort of the guests, because dinner is on the company when we’re training!!
It’s a treat not to have to cook much during this busy time, to get to know the amazing GH staff better, AND to get to return to some of our favorite Cville restaurants! I can’t believe I’ve eaten lunch and dinner out two days in a row! It doesn’t feel like it because the food has been so fresh.
I biked home at 5:30 and took a cold shower and put on a dress. It was nice not to eat dinner in my shorts and Danskos! I still think this dress needs a better shape!
I thought we might end up with an hour long wait, but we actually lucked out with the best seat in the house! Top corner balcony!
Earlier today I said to myself “I’ve had a few nights of alcohol in a row, better sit tonight out.” But then we got there, and, well, it’s just a missed opportunity to turn down a glass of wine at such a fun restaurant. Especially with local wines on the menu!
So I buckled and got a glass of a local favorite: Veritas Viognier.
When we found Burrata on the menu, we HAD to get it! Remember when we had it at The Local’s neighbor, Tavola, just a few weeks ago? It was incredible, and this time was just as delicious. The most amazing caprese salad in history!
For dinner I had the Blue Crab-Encrusted Grouper with Sweet Potatoes and Arugula
This was the perfect portion – and was mighty tasty!
Buttery sauce on the edges and all!
We passed on dessert. When I eat out a lot, whether I’m traveling or just in a series of celebration nights, my goal is to eat portions as I would at home. Last night and tonight have both left me satisfied but not too full. I suppose that’s the way restaurant eating should be!
Fun fun time. Tomorrow is our first staff meeting and more sandwich making! Also, 90* weather and SUN!
