Elegant and Delicious: Spoon

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

A classy restaurant we’ve driven by on a daily basis but never stopped to dine.

Celebrating 19 years- our unanniversary- a solid friendship and steadfast companionship, not sure where all that time has gone but there we were in East Liberty and we headed to SPOON.  

What we ate-   the service was excellent and even though we weren’t ordering up the Foie Gras or the Tasting Menu or a Magnum of Champagne, they treated us hospitably and did not make us feel out of place as we were “walk-ins” and didn’t have reservations which would be a good idea for future visits.

Breadbasket: warm cream cheese chive biscuits/baguette and warm muffins

garden vegetable baby mix green salad: Golden Harvest Farm baby mix greens, fresh garden vegetables, champagne vinaigrette

Spoon burger:  8 oz. Kobe beef, aged white cheddar cheese, parmesan + herb fries, challah bun

Too full for the desserts but they sounded wonderful.

  3. A happy anniversary to you both! Spoon sounds like just the place for an anniversary dinner. And the pic of the Kobe cheeseburger has me salivating! Thanks for bringing us along, I hope we weren’t too intrusive. 🙂

    Congratulations to both of you! They served goat for dinner last night. Thankfully there was also beans and rice, a staple here in Haiti.

  11. Your meal looks wonderful; and I’m *so* glad to hear that they treated you respectfully, even if you “just” walked in, and didn’t order the priciest items on the menu. THAT is the sign of a truly classy restaurant. 🙂
