Last year, we went to The Ribbon with our friends Anna and Carlos. They’ve been to the restaurant in the past so invited us there to thank us for watching their pup, Harlie. The Ribbon has a bloody Mary menu where you can customize the type of alcohol to use as your base, the flavoring, and whether or not you want to add celery salt to the drink. Here’s mine (I ended up making a bloody Mary using the basic ingredients because why mess with something that’s already so good?):


Ken and Carlos both ordered bourbon on the rocks:


For an appetizer, we ordered the Buffalo style cauliflower:


And fried chicken wings with corn bread pudding and honey chipotle butter:


Both appetizers were really good – the cauliflower is separated and lightly battered and fried and mixed with Frank’s red hot sauce. The chicken wings were also good – lightly breaded and a good combination of sweet and savory.

For my entree, I ordered the black bean burger with a side salad:


Ken ordered a breakfast sandwich with potatoes:


Carlos ordered the Pig Club (I think):


And Anna, being the healthy eater that she is, ordered the seared salmon with a side salad:


The meal was really good – the black bean burgers reminded me of the burgers that I used to eat in North Carolina at a place named Ganache (I haven’t been back in over 10 years – I wonder if they’re the same!)

The restaurant also serves dinner and their desserts look amazing – can’t wait to go back.
