Which Came First.....

Last night the hubbie and I went on a spur of the moment date. We tried a local favorite Chicken and the Egg Modern Farmstead Fair and are we ever glad we did. Wonderfully Lost and I have been in the past for a ladies night of drinks and apps (and an attempt at taking home the robins egg blue benches in the foyer (I have a kayak carrier that doubles as a church pew carrier on my car) - well and every other decor item we could fit into our cars (you can never have too many mason jars right??)) but I have never experienced their "supper" menu. They are located on Whitlock Ave in the same shopping center as the famous Gabriels. Not too far from the Square. 

The decor is adorable and the menu mouth-watering. We were limited on what we can eat because of the Lenten season but that did not stop us from over indulging on what we could. A few things we will be back for after Easter: the barrel aged and craft cocktails and bottomless mimosas for brunch. Last night we enjoyed the Mushroom Toast which consisted of goat cheese, honey, arugula, truffle oil, and of course mushrooms. Full of flavor, hint of sweet and crunch from the toast. And it's pretty ;) 

For our entrees we chose two that complimented each other and split them. I chose the Bayou Pasta which had shrimp, chicken, and  Heywood's Provisions tasso on a bed of linguine. It also contained Georgia vidalia onions and other things you will just have to try for yourself.  

The hubbie chose the seared scallops..I mean they come with pimento cheese grits so it was an obvious choice. The flavor of the grits, the scallops cooked to perfection...we are in love. 

Pretty sure I just licked my screen. The experience was wonderful. Service, food, decor - perfect, all in all a 5 star package :) We will definitely be back!

  1. It's no secret I love The Chicken and the Egg! You'll (or rather we) will have to go for brunch! It's delish :) And I still really want that bench. It'd look so pretty in the house. ha!
