I have never participated in a Restaurant Week before, and I was pretty excited. Charlotteâ€™s RW is called the Queenâ€™s Feast and dozens of awesome restaurants participate. At each restaurant, there is a fixed-price menu of three courses for $30. Georgeâ€™s Brasserie offered an awesome vegetarian option in each course â€“ I was pleasantly surprised!
I ordered a pinot noir to start:
And crusty French bread with the best butter in the entire world. This butter was so fresh and salty.
First course was a mixed green salad with fried brie (those arenâ€™t croutons!), apples, and candied pecans.
Second course was a spinach, cheese, and mushroom crepe with a creme sauce. I ate one crepe and saved the other one for tomorrowâ€™s breakfast. 😉
The crepes were light and flavorful. Like little pillows!
And the third course was dessert! I got the creme brulee, which is actually my very favorite dessert in the entire world.
Itâ€™s nice to go out on a Sunday night and do something fun. I need to do this more often!
Letâ€™s seeâ€¦ I also ran 4.0 miles today, bringing this weekâ€™s grand total to 20 miles. My foot is feeling great and Iâ€™m definitely getting back into the half marathon training groove. And not a moment too soon â€“ my race is in eight weeks (!!!).
Post-workout snackage was hummus toast:
Have you ever participated in your cityâ€™s restaurant week? How was it? I was so impressed by Georgeâ€™s. It was truly great, and Iâ€™m not sure I wouldâ€™ve gone there without the Queenâ€™s Feast as motivation.
