The hungriest table ever
So said the server/chef last night when we left Myra's Dionysus in Clifton, after dear friend Kristin's departure dinner. Fred and I arrived early and (guiltily) held a table for 30 minutes while we waited. In our defense, no one else needed the table until after two more people in our party of seven had arrived.
Mary was right. You can get three courses for less than $20. I spent $14.65 on Thai pumpkin soup, the wheat loaf special (pecans, bulgar and cheese, like a meat loaf, with mushroom sauce, veggies and cheesy mashed potatoes, for $6.75), a cookie and a glass of Chablis! Wow!
We ordered, more people would come, food would arrive in shifts, we tasted one another's food, we ordered again... and so on. We ate SO much!
Oh, do we love Myra's now. It's small -- maybe 20 seats. But the food was fabulous -- especially those soups. (Check Mary's blog for a recipe that's a version of the Thai pumpkin soup.)
I left full and happy, and I think Kristin left Cincinnati feeling that way, too.
My boyfriend and I will be back -- and soon.
Tonight's our six-month anniversary, and I'm starving. We're cooking, and all I want to do right now is eat good bread and cheese. I'm thinking mussels might be good, but I won't make it Findlay Market this late. Sigh. Let's hope Wild Oats has some.
