After several rough weekends this month (I am so excited September is almost here!), we decided to escape the house this weekend. I had spruced up my look with a fresh haircut and the deletion of my sparkles, so I wanted to go out. Mike did a great job planning and we opted to see Sausage Party at the Moviehouse. For dinner, we tried the nearby, Oasthouse Gastro Pub. It was a cute atmosphere and it must be fairly popular, as it was pretty crowded. Mike decided to order an Oasthouse Mule to get things started while we browsed the menu.
Everything on the menu sounded delicious so our work was cut out for us. Oasthouse offers a seasonal menu with many locally sourced food items. In the end, Mike chose the Blackened Chicken and Ricotta Gnocchi. The chicken was cooked perfectly, tender in the center, with a well seasoned crisp outer layer. The gnocchi was creamy and delightful. I went with the Swine Burger and fries. The burger was made of ground pork, topped with cheddar and some sort of aoili with a bit of a kick to it. We were very happy with our meals and had we not been heading to the movies, we might have tried dessert or appetizers. The food was excellent and the atmosphere was cool, so we will definitely be back to try new items on the menu.
