One particular Friday night, after watching Hobbs and Shaw at AMC, we decided to grab some dinner at Paul Martin’s.
Mind you I had already been eyeballing this place and seen some things (quite a few things) that really piqued my interest and knew we needed to come here. We arrived and were seated pretty quickly. I immediately loved the vibe-it was a pretty filled restaurant with a good buzz of chatter filling the air. It was lively!
We glanced at the menu and figured out what we wanted to order and went for it! We decided on the grilled artichoke for an app, the short rib for our main, and picked roasted cauliflower and Brussels to add on as sides.
We started with this beautiful bread and butter situation. The bread was just slightly warm, but so soft in the middle and crusty on the outside. The butter was salted and soft-super easy to spread! I honestly don’t know if there is anything that tops a good bread and butter combo for me…it’s just so good.
We have never had artichokes and we were a bit confused on how to eat it. To be completely honest we just looked it up and I kind of wish we had looked it up while there because we wasted a lot of edible artichoke The pieces we did eat though were super flavorful and had that lovely charred, salty delicious taste that I adore!
The roasted cauliflower and Brussels were so good. The cauliflower was nice and garlicky from the pieces of roasted garlic that were hidden amongst the chunks of cauliflower. The Brussels were crispy and soft and absolutely delicious.
The short rib was so tender you didn’t need a knife and the mashed potatoes that came with it were very smooth and creamy.
The food was a HUGE hit with us and the service was really great! We will definitely be keeping this place in mind as an option for date night. If you have a Paul Martin’s near you, you absolutely should check it out!
