What a joy it was Thursday night to celebrate my birthday (early) at one of my favorite restaurants, La Petite Grocery. I received what I requested- a very small group of friends at a favorite local restaurant of mine! Within walking distance from home, La Petite Grocery is a delightful lunch place and an elegant dinner locale. The charming bar is always filled with such a classy group of locals and out-of-towners alike.
Round of drinks, please! Cheers!!!
For my birthday dinner, I started out with the baked blue crab brie and chives served “au gratin”. It is to die for.
I then dined on my absolute favorite hamburger in the whole wide world (and I know hamburgers), the LPG cheeseburger house-made pickles, onion marmalade, arugula, whole grain mustard, aioli and gruyere served with fries. If you have not tried this burger, you do not know what you are missing. Put this burger on your “to do” list soon.
The local shrimp and grits(shiitake mushrooms, smoked bacon and thyme) are a big hit also.And finally, I was presented the toffee-chocolate tart, brown butter shortbread crust & coconut cream. Ooooo la la! Of course, there was one lit candle atop. Thanks, G!
After another successful birthday dinner with close friends down, it’s off to Ocean Springs to further celebrate turning 44…
