This past Saturday we decided to venture outside our comfort zones of Rooster & Southwest Diner, and head to Cherokee street to try a new brunch spot. Melt was better than we expected - I'm already scheming how to get Darrell back there next weekend. The restaurant itself looks like something you'd see in Portlandia - coffee pot chandeliers, an old telephone booth, and those chicken salt & pepper shakers? The hoarder in me kind of died over the whole place.
I had the "Violet Beauregarde" (rad name for blueberry waffle) and Darrell had the "Bleu Ox" which is basically a ton of brisket & bleu cheese (as that's what he tends to order when we venture out of our vegetarian kitchen) and both were stellar! My only comment - get your order "stacked" - portions aren't gigantic and you'll totally want the second waffle.
Since it had dipped back down to COLD Saturday, I decided to just wear out the last of my autumn clothes and give in to the weather. I would however, now consider myself firmly done with winter, and I even made the bold move of packing up the last of my winter coats. I don't care if that means I have to freeze in a trench coat for a few more days - I just can't bear wearing them anymore! Thankfully weather.com says we're headed straight into spring. Any day it jumps above 60 degrees we've been going to the park for long walks, which are my current favorite form of exercise.
Any awesome new restaurants you've tried in St. Louis lately? Any weekend outings now pretty much revolve around food (for me at least) so I'm always looking for a new spot to try!
