Anyway, enough about that (for now)- let's get onto dinner. We decided on the Quarter Bistro in Mariemont. We got there around 7pm and were the youngest people in the restaurant...by like 30 years... I obviously have no issue with that, it was just an interesting crowd...about a half hour in, the place started filling up with more families and younger couples... I guess we were just still on the early bird special timing.
The waiter brought over a white paper bag with a baguette in it along with a side of soft whipped butter that was so delicious. I don't ask for much when it comes to bread....warm fresh bread, real butter, softened butter....it was perfect.
I ordered a Caesar salad to start and this fancy guy came out:
For dinner Rob ordered the Torta Cubana:
Honey Pit Ham, Braised Pork, Chorizo, Cotija Cheese, Avocado, Chipotle Mayonnaise and Housemade Fries
I only had a bite of this, but to me the bread was the perfect mix of crunchy and soft (not too bready) and all the meat was tender and the flavors complemented each other really well. Rob loved it and said he would order this again for sure.
My dinner isn't listed on the online menu for some reason so let's see if I can remember all the components.
Scallops with fried tomatoes, crab cakes wrapped in asparagus with black quinoa and an asparagus puree.
We will definitely be back...hopefully to sit on their pretty lil patio!
