The Grove, it's no surprise that I underestimated Houston rush hour traffic (amateur), was 30 minutes late, and may or may not have hit a car trying to parallel park.
Okay, I thought I hit a car, but then it ended up actually just being the curb, and really I only tapped it a little.
And they do! And I had an incredible, much-needed martini with cocktail onions!
(Or vodka gibson, whatever your preference.)
But you know what was impressive?
Next up we ordered the sweet corn esquites.
After the esquites, we ordered the cheese plate, which 12 times out of 10 is always a good decision.
But the cheeses were sensational. The one on the left was similar to a brie, and suuuper creamy. The one in the middle with the black wax was phenomenal and unlike any cheese I'd ever had, and the sliced up little guy on the right was a more pronounced, harder cheese. The jams served with each were perfect companions, and the light, crisp, wafer-y crackers did not distract from the main event.
So when you go just be sure to ask for the brie doppelganger, the black wax coating cheese, and the sliced up little guy on the right!
And tell them Kim sent you!
(Straight from the slammer.)
It's the perfect place for a first friend date!
