Jethro's Restaurant - LL

Jethro's was formerly a private home and , consequently, only had room for 3 booths and 8 tables in the dining area for a total seating capacity of 30. Although I have been to this establishment many times before, it's still a ridiculous amount of excitement when i walk through the door. Or actually find parking. Though walking a block is totally worth it! The bar section of the restaurant is dimly lit, the kind of candlelight that flatters even the most bizarre of flaws.. note to self, do not pick up men at this bar. The seating is comfy and the menu is printed in a metallic ink as to play off of the flickering candlelight. Something to be appreciated after you've been staring at a blinking monitor all week. All cozy, check. Still allowed to smoke, check!!! I am ready.

Round 1: Appetizers

YUMMMM. Nothing better to go with your Sidecar (a Jethro's specialty cocktail) than some yummy appetizers. I've had the calamari and the mozzarella before and chose the mozz. It's beyond yummy served cold with the  prosciutto wrap. The peppers add a bit of kick to the dish.

Round 2: Main Course

YUM. again. Many times I've been to Jethro's I've witnessed my friends devouring the signature Jethro burger. I have not yet been brave enough to try it. As a pseudo-vegetarian I try to avoid anything made of cow... but I digress. It was amazing. Served open faced on a baugette with veggies as a side, it's more than a meal.. sharing included.

Round 3: The Sweet Escape

WOW. I'm not much of a chocolate person... BUT I may have been reformed after this. The fudge brownie was more like a chunk of homemade fudge.. and just as tasty. I'm not huge cappuccino fan but when coupled with the fudge brownie, it was almost like a rediscovery that the Reese's people should have been made aware of long ago. I believe I even stated "out loud" that this was better than any man. Ok, so I hate them. But I love chocolate : )

As far as "planning" goes, I may be one of the most anal when it comes to details. Thus, I choose to provide every woman a service that's long past due. I give you "Flushed Out" the guide to every potty that I encounter in said establishment. Your guide to just how secure to make that ass gasket.. and how high to hover.
