We had a fun visit to EarthFare tonight for dinner to meet a few of my Duke readers who were in town for a concert. I met Becca back in January in Hillsborough, and Kath (another!) and Leslie joined her this time 🙂
EarthFare seems to be the request destination of out-of-towners!
Since I don’t eat dinner here often, I opted to choose from the Grill rather than the salad bar.
Since it was early, we weren’t that hungry and Matt and I decided to split a sandwich: Local Trout, grilled with roasted peppers, goat cheese and pesto aioli (on the side) on a whole wheat bun.
With NC sweet potato fries!! I had about 1/3 of these.
The oozing goat cheese was awesome!! And the fish sandwich was nice and light. Would definitely get this again!
Beer Nerd. I had a sip 😉
I got some veggies from the salad bar to go with my sandwich. Greens, squash, sprouts, carrots, green beans, a slice of pineapple, sunflower seeds, almonds and a dab of honey mustard.
And I chugged this all night
I ordered a Chardonnay flight. LOVED 2 of the 3. The Miner and Landmark were awesome – oaked, buttery + bold. The Jordan was a bit crisp and boring.
I hate to give bad reviews, but we had very sub-par service and debated going to a different bar for a second round. But by the time our check finally came, our buzz had worn off! Kanz and I had yet to watch last night’s Office, so we invited the crew over to watch.
I set out some snacks – which centered around these awesome Cinnamon Corn Chips by Food Should Taste Good. LOVED them!!
Plus Sarah’s biscotti and a few of my aunt’s magic cookies!!
I had a cookie and about 5 biscotti and 10 chips? Dinner was smallish and long ago – I was actually hungry!!
The gents opened a new beer: Brooklyn Brewery’s Local 2, a Belgium-style brown ale that Matt and I picked out at Total Wine last week upon spotting our favorite ingredients on the label. It did not disappoint!! I had 2 big gulps and more of my sparkling water!
What a fun spring evening!!
Tomorrow’s plan: farmer’s market, workout, lunch, Davidson!
