Tuesday - Celebratory dinner out (spur of the moment!) at Zingerman's Roadhouse

Apilachicola oysters (M)
Arugula and red oak leaf salad with roasted beets and goat cheese (J)

Aged top serloin, mashed potatoes, sauteed spinach (M)
Beef brisket, creamed corn, Southern-style greens (J)

Fresh apple fritter with cinnamon gelato
Poundcake with cranberry compote and paw paw gelato
Today we were planning to have a regular dinner at home, but mid-day M got the call inviting him to interview for a tenure-track job. This is the first such call he's received, and I decided to try to get a babysitter (success!) and go out to celebrate. We hemmed and hawed about where to go and decided that, while not the fanciest, the Roadhouse is one of the most festive places we could go. It lived up to expectations and dinner was FANTASTIC. If you're in the area and you haven't been, go soon.

J: "So this is American cuisine."
M: "A hell of a neighborhood restaurant."
