Dining Out: Rockwood Filling Station

I met my friend Laura tonight at Rockwood's, a recently opened restaurant by the owners of Nana's and Q Shack on University Dr. We found the wait staff to be super friendly, the atmosphere great (not too noisy, non-smoking, and a little "sheik retro"), and the food rocked.

We started off splitting the antipasto platter: flat bread, a whole roasted garlic head split, two deviled eggs, kalamata olives, roasted red pepper strips, white bean salad, prosciutto, some sort of goat cheese, and pickled cauliflower. We both thought it was great and LOVED the idea of a whole roasted garlic head - I squeezed it out onto the flat bread and Laura squeezed a bit on the pizza we ordered.

They had a nice selection of pizza choices and make your own. The White Pie; Ham, Egg and Spinach; and Margarita all sounded tempting but we both agreed that we wanted to split a Roasted Eggplant, Ricotta, Caramelized Onion, and Capers Pizza. The bad news is, I apparently was so excited about it, I completely forgot to take a photo :(

Check out this blog for a glimpse of their pizza.

We topped the evening off by splitting a dessert - you HAVE to when they make their own selection of ice creams and sorbets. I chose a scoop of blueberry beignet and she got Praline & Caramel - we split the two scoops down the middle and shared (served with a homemade pizelle cookie).

I'm looking forward to taking the hubby back to enjoy a nice date night here. It was VERY affordable too, splitting a appetizer, entree, and dessert (I drank H2O) and tip - was $14.50!! (Sarah, let me know if you want to double date sometime!)
