When you live in a city as great as ours, there comes the perks of lavish restaurants and places to wine and dine. From some of the best steakhouses to the mom and pop diners that everyone knows your name, we’ve come to appreciate our restaurant community and what it brings to our locals.
A FIRESIDE FIRST TIME EXPERIENCE
The blackberry white rose sangria
Pro: Fresh and crisp taste, fresh berries, great presentation and garnish, definitely more on the sweet side if you love a sweeter taste.
Something to Consider: It had a slight tart-like taste, but not enough to turn your head.
The wood fired peppadew chicken wings
Pro: Sweet smelling, had a little kick for those that like a little heat, cooked fresh, great skillet presentation, served hot, mixed with a dry ranch seasoning that takes away the concept of having to use a dipping sauce.
Something to Consider: The glaze contained a stronger balsamic taste than what I would normally eat. As a result, it was a little overpowering, but everyone has their own taste. The chicken was also a little more on the chewy side vs. my preferred crispier side. But note that everyone has their own taste in what they like in wings, so whatever works best for you is most important.
Baby roast kale and beet salad
Pro: All the ingredients mixed in this salad were very fresh, loved the idea of using candied lemon rinds, contained fresh walnuts, goat cheese and mixed greens. I also loved the mixture of fresh honey mustard dressing that came on the side. In the end, this one gets a KALE YEAH!
The Goat Cheese veggie pizza
Pro: Baked to perfection, super fresh, came out hot, loved the use of fresh artichokes, peppers, olives, goat cheese and mushrooms.
Something to Consider: There was a lot of use with the peppers in this pizza, so if you’re a fan of peppers this is definitely the pizza for you.

market fruit crisp
Pro: The fresh smell of apples and cinnamon in this dessert took us back to our days of being in grandma’s kitchen. We also loved that the ice cream used in this dessert was from a local ice cream parlor and the crisp taste of the apples and crust were made to perfection.
