All good meals start with a good drink. This is the Garden Cup #1: cucumber vodka, pimms #1, agave nectar, lemon juice, cilantro, cucumber, celery shrub with a dash of habanero bitters. So unusual, crisp, refreshing and delicious.
If you find yourself in the Lafayette area, I highly recommend Black Sparrow.
So I left the Black Sparrow and started walking into the downtown concentration of restaurants, bars, galleries and music venues. I came across the Lafayette Brewing Company. Perfect! I enjoy a locally brewery as much a the next beer drinker.
From the ten tap offerings that evening, I chose a flight of four of the darkest beers currently being brewed. So good I ordered a glass of my favorite, the award winning Black Angus Oatmeal Stout. I looked through their pub menu, cleverly printed in the fashion of a newspaper, and I wished I were hungry. Several unusual choices that would make the Lafayette Brewing Company my choice for my next meal when in that city.
