I started with queso de chiva, which is grilled ciabatta bread and herbed tomato sauce with goat cheese. Very yummy! We also got some rolls brought to our tables, so I grabbed a pretzel roll because they’re my fav.
My entree was the Rosemary Polenta Cake with warm mushroom and fig salad, arugula, and aged balsamic syrup. Holy delicious!
I wasn’t sure if I had had polenta prior to last night’s dinner, but I loved it. I think having figs in a salad was new for me as well, which was also excellent. I need to incorporate figs into my home made salads!
And for the best part, dessert! We all chose the same thing because we’re a bunch of chocolate loving girls! Chocolate chip cookies with ice cream and warm chocolate syrup to drizzle on top.
We all really enjoyed our meals, the service was excellent and the atmosphere was modern and sleek. I would definitely recommend Kil@wait to local readers and to anyone visiting Milwaukee.
As I drove home from downtown, it was clear that a bad storm was heading our way because lightning was constantly striking and you could just feel it in the air.
At about 9:30, the winds picked up and I guess they got up to about 60 miles per hour in the Milwaukee area. I was concerned about our garden, so I was looking out the back window at the strawberry plant when I saw our only tree in our back yard practically fold in half. Well, a huge branch did fall and break off our ash tree. This really bummed Craig and I out last night and sort of depressed me when I woke up to see it again this morning. 😦
But, I am also reminded that we are lucky in comparison to those in Missouri, Massachusetts, and Alabama who all got hit by such devastating tornadoes this year.
So relieved that tomorrow is Friday! Looking forward to the weekend and a three day work week next week.
