Date Night: Meriwether's

Hi There! How was your weekend? Ours was fun-filled, eventful and a bit exhausting! Friday night Corey and I headed to Meriwether's for a nice long dinner al fresco. We had always heard great things about their back patio, but had never actually been. It was so incredibly beautiful! It was like a little garden oasis in the middle of the city. 

The food was mouth-watering amazing. We loved everything we ate, but we especially loved our appetizers that came in small portions so we could try a few different things. We had the risotto fritters (incredible!), what they called tomato ricotta toast, which was basically bruschetta and absolutely delectable, and the tuna empanadas, which were also amazing but didn't blow me away like the others. Our entrees were good, but didn't compare to the appetizers, and the dessert (chocolate-chip banana bread pudding) was supper yummy but could've used a bit more caramel sauce! Overall we were really happy with our dinner, especially the ambiance of the serene back patio on a nice summer night. In the winter, when the patio is closed, I would stick with the happy hour!

P.S. Sorry for the not-so-stellar photos. I forgot my camera so these were all taken on my iphone!
