So Candied Spiced Bacon Pops happened...
That's a sure fire sign that RESTAURANT WEEK is here! Only my favorite week of the year that doesn't involve gifts.
My first stop was the Olive Cafe. I've been dying to try it since they opened. I had these bacon pops as my first course and let me just say, they did not disappoint. Crisp-yet-chewy bacon, drizzled with a sweet maple-balsamic glaze and spiced just right - how could you go wrong? I'm definitely going to attempt to reproduce these at home.
We followed with truffled mac n cheese, ham and pimento cheese toasties, and a delightful pumpkin bar for dessert.
Have you made any restaurant week stops? My vote is we turn this into Restaurant Month next time around!
