I just got back from a little vacation to Ocean City with the girls. But before I left Shannon and I went to Spoon in East Liberty for a very tasty dinner. We also had some fun going to a trunk show at Luxe showroom around the corner that a friend (Adam) suggested I check out. So I dragged Shannon there for a few hours to meet up with him and look at some jewelry and clothes. I love how East Liberty is in transformation (like much of the city). There are still some sketchy areas, but with all of the restaurants and stores it’s definitely up and coming.
Back to the food! Shannon and I went there because I wanted to go someplace in East Liberty and it was restaurant week and Spoon was on the list. I originally had every intention of ordering the chef’s restaurant week menu, but there was a halibut with a goat cheese ravioli that sounded too good not to get. Shannon and I actually both ended up getting that.
I started with an heirloom tomato salad that was fantastic. I love how each of the tomatoes have their own flavor and texture. They were all similar but different.
Shannon got a salad with a wonderful dressing.
We ended up sharing both so we could both try everything. Since we were ordering the same meal I’m only giving you a review of the halibut. It was absolutely delicious. The fish was cooked perfectly and I loved how it was served. The ravioli was also wonderful, I love the tang of goat cheese in a ravioli.
The only other thing I’ll mention is a rum drink that I had at the trunk show. When we got there I tried a friend’s rum drink and immediately went to find one of my own. It was a spicy rum punch. It tasted like autumn. At first the guy making the drink laughed at my description, but I’m telling you that I was spot on (Shannon agreed with me, so I felt justified in my description). If I can find what was in it I will let everyone know!
Now back to the 3 loads of laundry that I have to do after coming back from vacation.
