Merry Christmas! As I wait for our Christmas turkey in the oven, I figured I would make a post. This month I am home with my family in Jacksonville, Florida. One of my favorite places to go in Jacksonville is the Riverside/Avondale area. I learned about a new restaurant called “Black Sheep” over in that part of town so a friend and I decided to check it out! Black Sheep is a really cool space. The restuarant has big open windows, so you can people watch outside (which is one of my favorite things to do). It’s decorated really interesting light fixtures and black wooden tables and chairs. Pictured above is the following:
- Truffled Black Hog Farms Egg Toast: fontina cheese, market greens and herb salad
- Fried Green Olives stuffed with Pimento Cheese
- Fried Green Tomato BLT: thick cut bacon, little gem lettuce, black pepper aioli, southern pepper relish
- Shoestring Potatoes with ancho chile aioli
I went to Orlando last week and caught up with some old friends! We went out to dinner at a place called Ravenous Pig. The ambiance was really cool and the decor had both traditional and modern pieces. The restaurant was dimly lit and split up into three different sections— some tables were high tops and others low. Some of the interesting features of Ravenous Pig were the brick walls, cement statues and black and white photographs framed and hanging on the ceiling. I had the oxtail pasta which included pomegranate seeds, walnuts and a hearty sauce. It was the most intriguing dish on the menu although there were some other creative entrees. My friend had the chicken which was seasoned with citrus and paprika and paired with pieces of sweet potato. Delish!
