Anyway! As you know, Greg was not here for our anniversary last week. That kind of thing really doesn't bother me at all, because I know we can easily celebrate it another day and it's not a big deal. It's him missing my ovulation altogether that really gets my panties in a bunch ;) So to celebrate our anniversary, we decided to go to Pewter Rose Bistro, a little restaurant in the South End of Charlotte.
I've been there for drinks, but never eaten there. My main reason for choosing it, was that I've heard they have some great vegetarian options. Since Greg tends to gravitate towards vegetarian choices, I figured I would choose somewhere with at least a couple good options rather than go to a place with like one thing on the menu.
I love the inside of the restaurant, with exposed brick, trees, and Christmas lights.
My hot date.
I bet you guys can't guess what I ordered to drink?
Yup, that'd be my usual- a Malbec.
Greg knew right off the bat what he wanted- the lasagna: pasta, mushroom duxelle, sautéed spinach, butternut squash, gruyere cheese, sofrito.
And it came with garlic bread- which doubled his pleasure.
I had a hard time deciding what to order, but knew I desperately wanted to try the truffle mac and cheese. I opted for a side of the mac and cheese with a goat cheese salad topped with a crab cake.
The crabcake and goat cheese salad was excellent, but the truffle mac and cheese totally stole the show.
It was "heavens opened up and angels sang" good! The first words out of my mouth were "OH MY GOD". Yeah... It was awesome. I kind of want a vat of it to bathe in... I have already decided that next time I go, I'm going to order two side orders of the truffle mac and cheese and a side salad. I could order three orders and no salad, but that would be excessive, right?
We had an excellent date night out celebrating five years.
If you're in Charlotte and looking for excellent veg options and a cute place for a nice date, Pewter Rose is an excellent option.
