Shall we try real time blogging?
Caroline: We are here at Fork & Fig, a small and modern place… reminds me of something you might see in San Francisco.
Ann: I’m starving, let’s order. The soup de jour is a chicken coconut green curry; that’s sound good with my order of tomato chicken sammy (sandwich).
C: Sitting at the counter and watching the chef cook is really cool… The grilled zucchini looks like it’s topped with chimichurri. The silverware looks fancy but–hey!– it’s plastic! That’s neat.
A: What are you getting Cari?
C: I’m starving so I’m going for the ribeye wrap and the potato gnocchi side.
A: Wow, that was a quick 10 minutes…. Here we go!
C: I really like this gnocchi!
A: I really like this soup; it’s got a small kick and I like the addition of sweet corn. And, there’s real shredded coconut!
A: Hey! Cari take a more flattering photo of me!
C: Yum! Pretty good food…. I have finally found a gnocchi dish I like. The ribeye in my wrap is a solid medium rare. One critique though: the balsamic reduction in my wrap is not very well dispersed. Other than that though, good food! How is yours?
A: I like the brioche bun and the grilled chicken is tasty. The alfalfa sprouts give it a nice earthy flavor. But where’s the tomato?
C: It comes with tomato relish, Mom.
A: Let’s see (opens sandwich)… It needs more relish.
C: If this place expands their menu, I think they’d be a good alternative to The Grove.
A: I give this place a 3-4 out 5. Not quite The Grove but a nice alternative if one is by Cottonwood Mall and needs some sustenance. What about you?
C: Like a 4 out 5. Maybe an 83 out of 100. Wow look at that corn! I am definitely ordering the cojito corn as a side next time. Anyways I’m stuffed and I need a box.
A: Yeah, those burgers look really delicious! Let’s be sure to bring the boys next time!
C: And order dessert! I’m too full right now but this week’s warm walnut bar with cream sauce sounds good. We’ll definitely be back.
