A La Lucie

In the midst of the horrific weekend that was the UK loss I almost forgot to post about the delicious dinner that the BF and I enjoyed on Friday evening. I have blogged before that I am a super picky eater and when it comes to unique foods (or anything with color...haha) I am hesitant to try new things. The BF had been saying that he wanted to go back to A La Lucie downtown. He had been a few times with his family before and he raved about the food. After hearing all of these great things I googled it and was taken aback by the menu. The only thing that looked halfway normal (as in something that I would eat) was the mashed potatoes. I kind of danced around the fact that I wouldn't eat anything of substance if we went there, but the BF made the reservation and we went. I had fully prepared myself to swallow the food without chewing (I've done it so many times before that I don't even think twice about) and I think the BF knew I was nervous about the whole situation.

Before we went to dinner I had already picked out what I was going to order and I was prepared. After getting to the restaurant (I had only seen it from the outside) I was pleasantly surprised. The decor was very eclectic and the food was FANTASTIC. When I say FANTASTIC I mean I couldn't get enough. I ended up ordering the Apple Pork Tenderloin and it was literally the best meal EVER, and I would definately recommend it.

Super cute and fun table decor....

A La Lucie...A La Delicious

We both had a great meal and I can't wait to go back. There are the sweetest little tables with leopard print umbrellas and hopefully next time it will be warmer and we can sit outside. I would totally recommend A La Lucie to anyone who is wanting to try something new and fun. 

I hope everyone has had a great Monday
