I hate feeling rushed while deciding what to order at a good restaurant. I like to start chatting and drinking wine instead of pouring over the menu for the exact right thing to pick.
So I get geeky and often check the restaurant's menu online before going out. Ample time to read the fine print, google ingredients I don't understand and put together a perfect choice. (Very nerdy and somewhat OCD-like, I know.)
I'm going to Slow Club tonight with Rob and my cousin, Heidi. I think I'll have the cannellini bean, gold chard and grana padano soup with either the grilled recla speck flatbread or the shaved summer squash salad. For dessert, I think the strawberry and walnut crisp is for me (although the banana bread pudding is really good). Yum!
