Gotta Get The Fish
Last night my brother and I went to Remy’s Kitchen & Wine Bar as part of Clayton Restaurant Week. After looking at the participating restaurant’s menus, Remy’s looked the most interesting and veg – friendly.
When I arrived, I had settled on the Greek Salad (no olives) for my appetizer, but I was still debating my main course. I put it out there on twitter and got votes for the risotto. I have been trending more towards true vegetarian lately as opposed to my usual pescatarian self, so I was really tempted to go with the Risotto. However it was made with cheese and I’m not a huge cheese girl. I also hadn’t had much protein that day AND the Bronzed Mahi is one of their specialties. I can’t pass up a fish special, especially when it comes with lentils! So the fish it was.
The salad was perfectly dressed in a light lemony vinaigrette, and feta really is growing on me in small amounts!
It’s honestly wasn’t all that spectacular, but I really liked the lentil broth. The fish was cooked very well and the little shrimp on top was a nice first bite! And for my dessert course I ordered their house-made raspberry sorbet. It was much creamier than it looks and had a bold raspberry flavor that I’m not used to getting in the winter. Delicious!
I love love that restaurant week portions are smaller. They were the perfect -size for a multi course meal (what the portions should be like in the first place!) and I didn’t leave feeling overly stuffed. I would definitely go back to Remy’s as their full menu had some really neat looking small plates. My brother enjoyed his lamb stuffed grape leaves, steak, and creme brulee. The atmostphere was dimly light with fun paintings and quotes printed onto the wall. It was a fun brother/ sister night!
This morning I woke up a few minutes before my alarm out of an amazing deep sleep. I NEVER have that feeling where I am just 100% dead to the world. I’m always up to go to the bathroom and tossing around. Today I was so rested and even more just so excited to have slept!
Yoga was fantastic due to my morning happiness. I think I made some progress on stretching my hamstrings and I hope I’m not sore for this weekends 15 miler! This training plan is getting really daunting! But in just 2 months I’ll be running a MARATHON and it will all be worth it!
The high today is a balmy 40 degrees so no boots in sight! Instead I’m just a walking Polo ad.
Super ripe bananas are the best oatmeal mixers and smell SOO good and sweet when you heat them up!
I have a lunch date with LB at Whole Foods for lunch and I’m already drooling over the cold bar. See you soon. HAPPY FRIDAY!
- What’s your opinion on restaurant portions? Do you like getting as much as you can for your money or do you prefer that they be smaller?
