Friday night I met up with my good friend Jess in Philadelphia. We hadn’t seen each other in over a year since we graduated college so a get together was long overdue!
She lives in the city so I headed over there and we went to a restaurant called The Latest Dish. It was a really cute and quaint restaurant. We lucked out because you seat yourself and there was a small table in the corner for us. If we had come any later we may not have had the experience that we did!
I had a glass of Sauvignon blanc.
Jess had framboise, a French raspberry beer. It was THE best beer I have ever tasted! I will definitely be ordering it anytime I see it on a menu!
The menu had so many good things on it that we had a hard time deciding! At first we were going to get our own entrees but then we deciding just to get several things and share. Best idea ever 🙂
They gave us some tasty bread with an olive oil pesto to start.
To start we had a mixed green salad which included: seasonal mixed salad greens, goat cheese crumbles, herb croutons, balsamic vinaigrette.
Jess and I both confessed our love for goat cheese so we obviously enjoyed this salad.
Next up we had lobster mac and cheese! This was the main reason that we decided to share! It was made with fusilli and a decadent cheese. And of course, lobster 🙂 It was so delish!
And lastly, we shared fish tacos. It was a featured item on a list of their specials and it sure was special. The flavors were perfect and they were a great portion size. And I was glad that they were grilled and not fried 🙂
After our amazing meal Jess and I met up with Julie and her friend Kelsey in the city for some drinks and dancing!
Jess was really excited about her beer.
I love being so close to Philadelphia and having the opportunity to try new restaurants! And it was so nice to spend time with friends, eat and catch up. I can’t wait to do it again 🙂
Only a few hours left of the contest!
