Last night was date night – but not with Brad. My friend Nicole and I had a proper date night – high heels and all! And it was really fun. We went to Blush, a swanky restaurant downtown, which quite frankly, doesn’t appear to belong in sleepy, casual Santa Barbara. Nonetheless, it has great food, a nice atmosphere and last night, particularly great music. Despite my slow walk down State Street in my awesome gold shoes (I wear them without the ankle strap)
– Filet Mignon Bites with two sauces: horseradish (which I didn’t know that I liked!) and an Asian BBQ (OMG – so delicious!)
– Parsley Truffle Fries with a lemon aioli sauce – I’m not sure that I can stress my love for anything truffle … and the lemon aioli – WOW. It was honestly, a party in my mouth.
– Mushroom, arugula and shaved parmesean flatbread
I’ve been here on one other occasion, and I have to mention the Lobster Mac-n-Cheese because it was also amazing. I have yet to taste bad food from this place and I suppose that’s why it has lasted when so many other places are shutting down. I hope this place stays and I really hope I get to go for brunch one morning (hint hint) – the crabs benedict is calling my name.
Thanks for the great time Nicco! I’ll go back ANYTIME!
