Eva Restaurant

Tonight Boyfriend and I skipped our usual Sunday take-out night, and walked two blocks to a new addition in our neighborhood: Eva Restaurant. We have wanted to try it for awhile, and I recently found out that they do a Sunday night family-style, Prix Fixe, five-course (wine included) meal. The menu changes each Sunday, but you can check their website in advance to see if it's what you want.

Tonight, we had:
Salad of little gem lettuce, green goddess dressing
Fried chicken
Warm potato salad, capers, vinegar, parsley, shallots
Red wine braised brisket
Creamed spinach
Bread pudding

* Red wine braised brisket and creamed spinach (iphone photo in dim lighting - sorry!)

This was such a nice way to finish off the weekend. The cozy, intimate setting at Eva was matched with such a wholesome, home-cookin' kind of feel. I would love to try their regular menu, but also might not be able to pass up trying another Sunday night there.

Christmas is right around the corner, and I couldn't help but try out one of these little elves. This pattern covers a wine cork. An early Christmas decoration in about 15 minutes!

Your dinner sounds homey and delicious. I love new restaurants to try.

Your little cork elf is so cute. I might have to try one, which means drinking a bottle of wine. sounds like a plan.
