The house was getting a little claustrophobic from being home during the day all week, so I combined a few errands with lunch out for a change. I went to a new bistro I hadn’t tried that has a light menu with build-your-own salads and a few sandwiches along with a case of fancy desserts and long list of wine. While the food tasted really good, it was a little overpriced and I wanted more veggie options for my salad!
I got a base of spinach and arugula along with carrots, artichokes, asparagus, and tomatoes (the only real veggies on the list), feta on the side and seared tilapia on top as the “protein.”
The tilapia was golden brown and crunchy – probably cooked in a bath of oil but very delicious!
The dressing was an orange-champagne vinaigrette. It tasted like a strawberry margarita!
I ate half each of the feta and dressing and cleared the fish and veggies.
I’m not sure I’d go back just because I could get an EarthFare salad bar salad for less, but I guess I’ll give it another try sometime since the fish and dressing were superb.
I also traveled to Trader Joe’s and Target for some supplies. Looks like with the TJ’s trip and the CSA delivery we can skip our grocery store trip this weekend. Hopefully we can stretch until next week, but we’re low on fruit so I might have to make a quick stop.
I’m off to find a snack!
