Ahhh Saturday mornings… you make life complete
Well before I head off to the farmer’s market with Mini-Fanatic, how about a recap of our night out last night?
On the agenda, Three Monkeys!
This is a restaurant this is a block over from my old row house in The Fan area of downtown Richmond and one that I used to go to way too much to admit
They have a wide selection of seriously delicious dishes (from gourmet pizzas to grilled eggplant sandwiches to falafel and spanakopita to the most delicious crab dip on earth) and not to mention a pretty sweet drink menu as well!
I think I’ve also told ya’ll as well why this place holds a special place in my heart —> guess who met here?!?!
So I was pretty excited because I finally got to wear my new dress that I picked up during our beach vacation in the OBX!
We went for a late dinner and had to wait a while to eat (pretty normal for Fan restaurants, but so totally worth it!) so of course a large glass of Chardonnay was necessary
Once we sat down I knew that an old favorite just had to be ordered… I present to you one of my favorite restaurant items ever:
Simple and delicious. Pretty much heaven on a plate.
We have – hummus, feta, olives, tomatoes, cucumbers, onions, pepperoncini all topped with a delicious vinaigrette and served w/ unseen herbed bread which is some of the best bread ever!
The Man ordered the Shrimp & Scallops which was prepared w/ orecchiette and a 3-cheese sauce.
He loved it!
All in all it was a great night out. And of course I always love seeing my best friend Tammy & her fiancé especially since her and I spent manyyyyy a night here w/ some Chardonnay, crab dip and hummus platters in our single-girl past
Alright, time to go wake up Mini-Fanatic to go hit the farmer’s market… hopefully she’s ready to rise hahaha.
Happy Saturday everyone!
