Last Monday we met our friends Kaylea & Steph at Rose & Sons, a place that’s been on my must-hit list forever. It did not disappoint. We started with this fantastic chili oil & maple syrup cornbread, then the grilled romaine caesar salad and east coast squid fry.
For the mains we ordered two plates of the Monday special: five small pieces of fried chicken, with four-cheese mac+cheese and dill cucumbers. It was all freaking amazing. The mac+cheese was especially great, and I HATE mac+cheese. We threw some onion rings in there too, each of which was the size of a hula hoop. We had a good chat with our server about the wine selection too, which was small but well-thought-out.
The fullness (and pre-dinner wine sampling) got the better of Steph and she bailed. Kaylea, Nellie, and I walked through the back to Big Crow, their bbq joint, for one more drink. We listened to endless 90s music and made a mental note to get our asses back there in the summer when the grill is going and the roof is open.
