Tonight's Dinner: February 9, 2013
As a thank you to our friend Melissa for doing our engagement photos, we met up with her in the evening for drinks at The Trappist in Oakland. Even though we had a very late lunch, I was starving. The food that they were serving looked pretty darn good for pub-fare. I got a grilled cheese that was fancier and creamier than any grilled cheese that I've had before. I'm not sure if that's a good or bad thing. It was super rich, which actually made it go really well with my blonde beer. I really enjoyed the crunch of the bread. They did a good job of browning it up without burning it...something I've never been successful at doing. I'm sure that tons of butter was involved, but I wasn't think about that at the time. We also ordered the charcuterie plate and later on in the night Nick ordered a Reuben. I enjoyed The Trappist as I love dive bars, but we weren't able to stay late because Christopher and I were getting up to run a 10k in the morning.
