Last night Ryan and I enjoyed a fun date night together!
Ryan wanted to take me to the Artisanal Dish, a gourmet European-inspired café/ grocery store hybrid, after he heard that they serve high-quality, organic fare.
The Artisanal Dish is like a scaled down Whole Foods with fancy prepared foods, a comfy café and less of a supermarket feel.
(The above picture is taken from their website because I didn’t want to disturb the diners last night since it’s a small establishment.)
Their menu changes daily depending on what fresh food they have available at the time. I was pumped to see seared scallops available and ordered them atop a green salad.
I ordered the salad with the balsamic dressing which came on the side. I immediately dumped all of it on my salad after taking a taste and falling in love.
On the side I also ate a wedge of their famous homemade macaroni and cheese which is basically a pie of gourmet cheese with some noodles thrown in for good measure.
Unreal, right? As a serious cheese lover, I was in heaven!
Ryan got a salad and a sloppy joe sandwich made with their humanely raised Wagyu beef that was also incredible.
While waiting for our meals to come out, we browsed around the wine and beverage section where I was immediately drawn to herbal-infused sparking water.
I got a bottle of Ayala’s ginger lemon peel sparkling water while Ryan opted for the cinnamon orange peel flavor.
Hands down the best sparking water I’ve ever tried.
Why does it have to be $2 a bottle?
I swear if that stuff came out of the tap, I would have no problems drinking tons of water every day.
After our dinner date, we came home, changed into our pajamas and watched A Few Good Men. Ryan DVRed the movie a couple of weeks ago and neither of us had ever seen it so we were excited to watch.
“You want the truth!? You can’t handle the truth!”
We both liked it a lot.
Demi Moore’s hair in that movie reminded me a bit of Hey Arnold’s (aka “football head”) hair. It was stylin’!
And speaking of football, I hope you’re enjoying Super Bowl Sunday!
