Delicious Dinner + BFF Time

Happy Hump Day! Only one week until Christmas Eve!! I’m super excited, but at the same time a little sad because I’m not ready for the Christmas season to end. Every year I get so busy and Christmas sneaks up on me and it’s gone before I know it, so I’m really trying to savor every moment of the season and do as many Christmassy things as possible!

Last night I had dinner with my friend Marissa at Edison: Food+Drink Lab. We had both been wanting to try it for a while, so when I was able to get a reservation on OpenTable, we were pumped!

Here is a little snippet from their website:

Our kitchen’s only formula is product + technique + creativity2. Chef Pierola and edison’s talented crew perform daily flavor experiments using the finest components, precise execution and their collective creativity2. The results are new interpretations of everyday food expertly engineered into current, modern cuisine.

We started off with some fancy (not to mention delicious) drinks. I had the Violetta and she had the Smashed Rickey. Look how pretty these are!

We both love food and always want everything on the menu, so we decided to order a couple items to split. We selected the Buffalo Cauliflower and a Kabocha Squash and Kale Salad. When the salad came out, we were starving so we dug in immediately. A couple minutes later, the waiter came back and said he had actually given us the wrong salad. We were so hungry we didn’t even think twice about how the fact that we were eating spinach and not kale haha. We ended up getting the spinach salad for free and still got our kale salad. Both were delicious!

All of the food was amazing, but the Buffalo Cauliflower stole the show! I cannot say enough good things about it and now I am dying to replicate it at home! (This picture does not do it justice. We were so excited to dig in that I wasn’t able to snap a great picture.)

It was a super fun dinner and I can’t wait to go back! They change their menu daily, so I know there will always be something new and delicious to try!

Have you ever unknowingly received the wrong food?
