DINNER 321: Saturday, November 18, 2006

P2010132.JPGTonight, Wendy & I drove up to Columbus Ohio to have dinner with Jon & Dawn, a very nice couple we met on our most recent trip to Mexico. We met them at Cap City Fine Diner, a restaurant that Wendy adores (and which happens to be within 10 minutes or so of Jon & Dawn’s home). They’d never been there, and seemed to enjoy it very much.

We started with Maytag Bleu Cheese Potato Chips (melted Maytag bleu cheese, scallions and Alfredo sauce over house-made potato chips) — one of Wendy’s favorite guilty pleasures — and moved on through entrees and desserts. I enjoyed my Pecan-Crusted Pork Chop (which was served with cheddar-chipotle mashed potatoes, candied pecans, spinach, shallots and an apple cider glaze), though the spinach was a bit bitter. We had dessert too, much to the discomfort of Jon & Dawn’s untrained stomachs. I had the Apple Pie, Wendy had upside-down banana cream pie, Dawn had carrot cake, and Jon had some sort of chocolate tart.

It was really nice to reconnect with our new friends from Columbus-by-way-of-Mexico, and we look forward to seeing them in December when they come down to Cincinnati.
