Joan and I went on a scouting expedition to Succotash the other day.
I had been once before when it was in the City Market area, but it had been a long time. Way too long as it turns out.
The woman who took our order had meticulously applied lipstick and a to die for upsweep. But do not for one minute think that she was just another pretty face.
It was she, who suggested when we ordered the 7 layer citrus cake for dessert, that we consider starting with it as an appetizer.
Appetizer? Cake? Certainly not. Much better for dessert we thought. We didn't want to make her feel bad though, so we took a few bites.
Which led to a few more bites. Which led to our conclusion that she knew exactly what she was talking about when she suggested we begin the meal by awakening our appetites with dessert.
Joan had the monte cristo sandwich which is served on french toast and has the perfect blend of smoky ham and sharp cheddar.
I had the chicken salad along with the tomato soup and as you can see I cleaned my plate despite the 7 layer citrus cake appetizer.
We saved just enough of the cake so polish off the meal with a few more bites of the 7 layer cake (which on the day we were there had 8 layers by the way).
If you are in the area you MUST consider a visit. In addition to a most excellent meal, the atmosphere is great, and the service excellent. Not to mention the advice which I believe should be considered life changing.
