Table 274

in All Posts

We are on fire tonight.   Very wild Friday!  PetSmart, Marshall’s… And now we’re on the couch, watching The Kids Are Alright

So far, its really good!


Naw, we did actually get out of the house and did something fun tonight.  For once, Friday is the beginning of a true weekend for us – no work!  So we were in the mood to celebrate and tried out a new (to us) restaurant, Table 274.

This was one of the best restaurant meals that I’ve had in a while.  The food was so carefully prepared.  I was very impressed.


I had a bib lettuce, melon, grape, strawberry, and spiced pecan salad with strawberry dressing.


And a side of garlic butter fingerling potatoes.


The Husband ate half of the potato side dish and this lovely Garden Variety menu.  The chef created three mini vegetarian meals at his leisure.  The grilled okra was great!


But dessert… oh, dessert.  It was the best.  Best described as a giant Klondike bar.  Homemade, hand-made everything, including chocolate ganache.


It was seriously to die for.  We licked the plate clean.


With a great big glass of red wine to top it all off.


I am so glad we finally walked into Table 274.  I always passed by but never checked out the menu – and now, we will definitely be back!


Hope everyone else is having a nice Friday, too!  Happy weekend.

    I have to be honest, I wasn’t seeing “one of the best restaurant meals I’ve had in a while”, and then I got to the dessert, and then I understood. Wow, you were one lucky girl this evening.

    That dessert is almost as gorgeous as the two of you are.

    So glad to see that you ate it! And not just a “bite” like I keep reading on blogs.

    That cheesecake looks amazing! Oh my gosh, I would kill for a slice of that right now 🙂

  • Laura @ Balance July 29, 2011, 10:28 pm

    Happy for you that you got to get out and have a nice date, sometimes tit seems like you guys work non-stop. Your meal selections look incredible, especially the dessert!

  • Katie (Sweet Tater) July 29, 2011, 10:38 pm

    been dying to go in there!

  • Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga July 29, 2011, 10:38 pm

    The dessert photography is *gorgeous*.

    The choc ganache, I would have been lickity licking my plate clean in public, no shame either!

  • Ashley @ Will Run for Food July 29, 2011, 10:41 pm

    The potatoes look insanely good. And I love the look of the whole dish (the dishes and big spoon)…looks so simple and chic. Yes, I’m strange and get excited over things like that. 😉

  • Annette @ EnjoyYourHealthyLife July 29, 2011, 10:49 pm

    Oh MY. That desserts looks sinfully delicious! WOW. I want some. Like right now!

    Looks like a great night out 🙂

  • Corrie Anne July 29, 2011, 11:05 pm

    That’s great. I’m glad you made it out. And you look gorgeous to boot! 🙂

    Am I the only one who HATED The Kids Are Alright? Like, loathed it. Maybe I missed something because everyone else seems to have loved it!

    • CaitlinHTP July 30, 2011, 9:49 am

      Oh I loved it! I thought it was so good

      • Hillary July 30, 2011, 11:55 am

        Maybe it really was just me. I thought the acting was awful, the story line ridiculous, and the whole thing just over the top. Apparently I need to see it again and rethink it, because it seems like I’m the only one who didn’t love it!

    • Susan July 30, 2011, 9:54 am

      Loved it…loved Mark Ruffalo, Julianne Moore and Annette Bening…loved it!

  • Army Amy* July 29, 2011, 11:42 pm

    Staring at your dessert is making it really hard for me to ignore my sweet tooth right now!*

  • Shayla @ The Good Life July 29, 2011, 11:44 pm

    I love “wild” nights like that with the hubby…they’re the best 😉

    So nice you ended it on a fun note at a great restaurant! That dessert looks sinfully good…I would love to try that!

  • Heather July 30, 2011, 12:27 am

    What a fun date night! That dessert looks delish.

  • Lesley July 30, 2011, 12:36 am

    Hi Caitlin,

    I haven’t commented on your blog in awhile, but I wanted to let you know I read almost everyday and I just get so much out of it. It’s really helped me to create a more positive life outlook, and motivated me to be more proactive about going after what I want. That aside, my dinner and dessert was a peanut butter granola bar and a caramel frappuccino. I’m having serious dinner envy of that salad (need to get my hands on strawberry dressing) and that amazing dessert! (was that a white chocolate shell? Nom.)

    • CaitlinHTP July 30, 2011, 9:49 am

      Thank you so much Lesley. That is the nicest thing anyone has said to me all week!!!! 🙂

      And yes, a white chocolate shell. Nom.

  • Michelle (The Runner's Plate) July 30, 2011, 1:31 am

    Hope you enjoy your weekend free of work!!

  • Amanda July 30, 2011, 4:16 am

    That dessert looks awesome! I love a little dinner and shopping on my fridays…. nothing too complicated! lol

  • Khushboo July 30, 2011, 4:30 am

    That dessert undoubtedly stole the show- I could do with some of that 🙂

  • Mahesha @ The Fortress Of Solitude July 30, 2011, 5:04 am

    that dessert looks yummy!!! I want me some of that 🙂

  • Sophie July 30, 2011, 7:00 am

    That dessert looks absolutely delicious!
    I could eat that on its own and call it a meal 😛
    You’ve reminded me that I really *need* a night out!

  • Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin July 30, 2011, 7:59 am

    I really liked that movie!

    And I think I have to agree with everyone else about that dessert – YUM! 😀

  • Gina @ running to the kitchen July 30, 2011, 8:37 am

    That dessert looks delicious! I need a night out like that soon.

  • dana July 30, 2011, 11:35 am

    I have to to say that I didn’t like ‘The Kids are Alright’…we rented it on xmas eve w/my family thinking it would be a feel good movie. haha, not so much!

    That dessert looks divine!

  • Jenn July 30, 2011, 1:47 pm

    Wait is the husband not vegan anymore? Or was that a vegan dessert?

    • CaitlinHTP July 30, 2011, 2:27 pm

      He was never a true vegan, he tries to eat vegan 80% of the time though.

      • Jenn July 30, 2011, 2:31 pm

        Oh ok! I like that… especially as a new vegetarian (still excited about this lol)!

  • Ashley July 30, 2011, 3:59 pm

    Just came across this blog a few days ago and already its a favorite of mine! Dinner looks so good! I love potatoes covered in garlic and butter – you can’t go wrong with it. Looking forward to reading more of your blog in the days and months (years, too)ahead!

  • Allison @ Happy Tales July 31, 2011, 12:05 am

  • Vanessa July 31, 2011, 11:05 pm
