Porgy's Birthday Brunch and Dinner

I took last Wednesday off to celebrate Porgy's Golden birthday. It was nice to have a day off in the middle of the week and it's even better to spend it relaxing and eating good food.

We started the day by having brunch at Brenda's French Soul Food near the City Hall. We went there a month ago and we decided to go back again this time because their food is so tasty. Of course, we started our brunch with an order of Beignets to share and Sweet Watermelon Ice Tea for each of us. Porgy had the Buttermilk Pancakes while I ordered the Grillades and Grits (Beef cutlets braised in spicy Creole gravy served over grits with two eggs any style and a biscuit). The Grillades and Grits was so Creole-y good and tasty!

After going all over the city and taking a nap at home, we met up with Mo-Fo for a wine tasting at Press Club before heading to Delfina for dinner. I've been wanting to try out Delfina in years but I was always to lazy to make the reservation. We started with Beef Carpacio and Tripa alla Fiorentina to share, followed by Gnocchi with Rabbit Ragu for Porgy and Shortribs Stracotto for me. Unfortunately, I forgot to bring my camera so we had to use our iPhone.

We capped off the night by crossing the street to Bi-Rite Creamery to get a pint of each Balsamic Strawberry and Coffee Toffee to enjoy at home. What a wonderful day and evening with Porgy.
