Suck My Garlic!

Looks familiar? Yes, it’s The Stinking Rose, again.

If you read what happened during the first visit, then you know why we doubled back.

After being seated, the restaurant’s general manager came over to greet us. He is very sweet and super attentive. Guess who popped up next? Our amazing server from the last visit.

Unlike last time, we ordered stinking entrees from the “favorites”. The Stinking Rose can feed me garlic drenched food (not ice cream) anytime.

Stuffed and traumatized from the garlic ice cream experience we decided to skip dessert. Against our will, the server brought out a complimentary dessert. We had to try it right? Hesitantly, we spooned a small taste and we approved this creamy goodness.

If you ever get hungry while running from vampires, tell them to suck your garlic after you stop by The Stinking Rose. Kill to birds with one stone.

The Stinking Rose

Do you see the Chicken and Asparagus dish? I ate that this past weekend at The Stinking Rose, it was yummy to my tummy. The other dish pictured is the Shellfish pasta ($24.95).

The ambiance is perfect for date night but it’s also suitable for a chill night with your girls or guy friends. The menu offers reasonable and high priced dishes. Our sever was very attentive, friendly, helpful and unobtrusive. We left a 20 percent tip, so you know it was real.

All went well with the exception of the garlic ice cream. Sometimes, I try really really hard not to judge a book by its cover and this was one of those times. Garlic ice cream is a no-no for my palate.

Check out the pictures below and feel free to ask any questions.

P.s. I forgot to take pics of the Bagna Calda and bread before we dug in. Those servings were not measly, pictured are the remnants.
