My days with Abe are numbered! We went out for a fancy date last night.
There was some kind of Earth Day celebration going on, hence the balloons.
…maybe you can see her better in this picture, blowing her nose behind me.
At the server’s suggestion, I ordered the Niman Ranch Pork Chop
Green tomato chutney
Over some cheddar grits and braised chard
I haven’t had a pork chop in years! The first bite was perfect, but the meal went downhill from there. Too much fat to spit out.
The sides were stellar though – I know Akasha more for its veggie-friendly options. Stole one of Abe’s onion rings – dipped in smoked paprika aioli
Plus some of his (veeeery thin crust) Margherita Pizza
I was still hungry and asked for bread. It never came out before the meal – not sure if that was an oversight or standard policy
Used two pieces to soak up the remaining noire de chambly jus
I had looked over the dessert menu online, and already knew what I wanted
Salty Chocolate Peanut Butter Bar, topped with sea salt and caramel
…with Peanut Butter and Chocolate Chip Gelato
Crushed candied peanuts
Evenly divided – crumbles and all!
