Miller Union, thanks to Kyle’s recommendation from way up yonder. They had ginger-blueberry soda ($3.50) and also a fig-herb one. (I didn’t try them; hearing about them was delicious enough.) I ordered the veggie plate without even asking what was on it. It wasn’t an inexpensive lunch for 2, but it was worth every penny.
Zippers and crookneck squash with deelish Vidalia onions from Jaemor Farms. Pierce's tomatoes. And OK, the rice is leftover from Mirage, but maybe it's a southern Iran kind of rice. That is one pretty plate.
closest thing to a veggie plate on Watershed's menu
“What’s seasonal vegetable farroto?” I asked our server. I was hoping farroto meant veggie plate. This was good: farro with a cream sauce over barely wilted kale with nice peas, over-roasted cauliflower and assorted ‘shrooms. And a perfect small lunch portion. But it’s not this
“I don’t like change,” said my lunch colleague, who was looking for the salmon croquettes on the new menu, which seemed to me to have a lot of fried seafood. (I never liked those salmon croquettes anyway. My own are better.) But honestly, the new chef wasn’t doing very well with the old menu. And Farm Burger next door is eating their lunch. It has a line out the door while Watershed sits almost empty.
Looking through the pics on my phone, I came across all this pretty food from week before last or so…
Leon’s Full Service in downtown Decatur after Jane and I showed up for Diane’s funeral a week early. Mirage during Neil’s quick visit to the ‘burbs. It was St. Patrick’s Day, but who wants Irish when you can have Persian? My monthly Ege after the Foundation board meeting. We are usually in the minority among Japanese folks here, but days after the earthquake, the place was packed, and I was wondering if people from Japan needed to be with others from their country. Total speculation, but people were actually waiting at the door at 9:30 on a Monday night.
after just a week and a day. Must be the ones I pre-soaked.
