Saturday was Mike's birthday and as usual, we set out to see a new movie and followed up with a delicious meal. This year, Mike selected Creed to see at iPic and North at the Domain. The movie was great and the iPic is our favorite place to watch movies. After the movie, we wondered in a few stores despite the drizzle. We got to North a little early, but they had our table ready for us. We sat in the heated and covered patio area, which gave us a great view of the open kitchen area. We started with drinks. I ordered the sangria, which had hints of strawberry and lime. Mike ordered a Fireman's #4 beer. Since we had popcorn at the movies, we weren't starving and decided to skip appetizers and just order our meal.
Our waitress brought us some bread and sun dried tomato butter to enjoy while we waited for our food. The bread was nice and crusty and paired nicely with the yummy butter. Mike had a great view of the kitchen and was able to watch the chefs creating pizzas and making pasta from scratch. After watching them cook, we were really excited for our food to arrive. Mike ordered the chicken parm, which came with a side of pasta in a garlic butter sauce. It was cooked to perfection and all the flavors complimented each other nicely. I chose the chicken pesto pasta. This dish was also delicious and was a large portion, so I was able to make a second meal later on. We browsed the dessert menu and many of the items sounded great, but we had lemonade cake waiting at home, so we didn't indulge this time. All the food was great and the atmosphere was enjoyable. We will definitely be making an effort to visit North again in the future.
