Last night we had the pleasure of meeting Sarah, her husband Josh and her out of town guest Cara, at Revolution! In my opinion this is Durham’s swankiest restaurant. The restaurant is described as “Contemporary Global Cuisine”.
If you live in the area and haven’t been, you simply must!
Checkout Sarah’s post for her meal recap.
Andy started the meal out with the fabulous James Bond martini, he slyly gave this order to our waiter as we sat down…I didn’t even hear him, impressive. I chose a glass of a buttery chardonnay to sip throughout the evening, I might add that we’ve found them to be generous pourers here.
We each chose an appetizer:
I got the daily special of Kobe Beef Sliders with Manchego Cheese and Pancetta – the best item of my night. This was served with homemade chips in a creamy dipping sauce, plus mini dill pickles were hiding back there on the plate.
Andy enjoyed the Foie Gras and Goat Cheese Waffles.
When he cut open the waffle it was filled with a hefty amount of goat cheese!
For the main course I was torn on what to get, there are SO many other menu options that sound divine. In the end, I went with another of their nightly specials.
Scallops on a bed of pancetta, potato and zucchini hash…so good. My mouth is watering again thinking about it.
Andy chose the Peking duck crispy frittata, a fine choice as well.
Dessert, though I didn’t need it, was a cup of decaf coffee and a Milk Chocolate Hazelnut Bavarian. Andy went with a glass of Ruby Fonseca Port.
It was such a fantastic evening, toasted to friendship. I am thankful to have some fantastic friends to share this and many future meals with.
