This past weekend started off right with dinner at a new restaurant for me, White Pie. A co worker of mine was raving about it and told me I had to check it out. It is located in the uptown neighborhood. G and I went on Friday evening and the weather was perfect so we go to sit outside on their patio. We got there around 6:30pm and there were still plenty of tables and were sat right away without a reservation. The vibe is also super casual. Most people were in jeans an t shirt and some were even in workout clothes from biking over there.
We started off with a house white wine for me and a Negroni for G as well as their house salad that fed 2-3 people. The white wine was pretty bland without much flavor, however I think that was needed to pair with all the amazing flavors of the food. G said his cocktail was great. The salad was huge! The both o us could hardly finish it and we are not light eaters so it is more than enough for 2 people.
We also got the lasagna which they are known for as well as the Paulie Walnuts pizza. I wish I had taken a photo of each, however I was too hungry and everything looked too good that I completely forgot to. The lasagna is what everyone said to get and it was homemade with about 10 layers. It was good, however I don’t think it was the best I have ever had. The pizza had mashed potatoes, bacon and candied walnuts and OMG it was amazing. If you end up going I would highly recommend getting the pizza. G and I can’t wait to go back soon and try another pizza.
Another successful weekend in the books! We got lots of yard work done and were able to sneak out for an early dinner at FNG Denver.
FNG is part of the TAG restaurant group and I was lucky enough to get a gift certificate for Admin Day. FNG is located in the Highlands neighborhood and only 11 minutes from downtown. I love Guard and Grace so I was really excited to try out their new less fancy sister restaurant.
We had an early dinner and arrived a little before 5 so seating was not an issue and it was such a nice day that they had all of their windows open and it was the perfect setting. Their vibe is retro classic rock. G ordered the F’n Burger with avocado and I got the Rotisserie Chicken Salad. We also got a basket of fries to share.
The the food and the portions were great, except for the basket of fries. I think those were probably enough for one person. We ended up ordering a second basket. The drinks were probably the best part though. I got the Almost Famous and G got the Debbie Gibson. The Almost Famous had the perfect amount of sweetness to it, but not too sweet and was perfect for a warm spring day.
The only complaint that G and I had with FNG was their wait time. We think that it might have just been us for some reason but it took forever to get our food and the second order of fries. G also ordered a side of ranch dressing and that did not arrive until he was finished with his burger. Again we think that this was mainly just us for some reason so we are both down to try it again soon because the food was so good.
