I wore one of my favorite dresses:
(Clyde was into it)
Greg got dressed up too :)
We got to the restaurant and were served fresh bread made in house drizzled with olive oil and cracked pepper.
Our waiter was great. He explained that most of Custom Shop's food is local and/or organic.
We decided to order a Spanish wine to share. They have Quartinos, which are little carafe's of wine that are about a 1/3 of a bottle. We chose the Pruno Ribera Del Duero 2008, Spain. Mmmm, really really good.
We then ordered a meat and cheese board consisting of:
Aged Cheddar Wisconsin (Cow)
Drunken Goat Spain (Goat)
Genoa Salami (Italy)
For dinner we both wanted the same thing, Ricotta Gnocchi, Arugula, Fresh Mozzarella & Eggplant
Soooooo yummy!! The Gnocci was like light pillows filled with ricotta. Heavenly.
And I wanted some Skillet Brussels Sprouts to round out the meal, which was obvioulsy heavy on carbs and cheese.
(I haven't really mastered taking pictures in restaurants with many many people around!)
I was really fun and needed a doggie bag for about half the brussel sprouts and some of my Gnocci.
At the end of the meal our server brought us two glasses of champange on the house since we were celebrating our anniversary! I loved that!
Custom Shop gets two thumbs up from us. It was a great dining experience and all the food was delicious.
Leaving the restaurant we were treated to this view of downtown Charlotte...
Glad we finally celebrated! It was a great night out!
