A semi-large decision has been made. Hubs and I are going to get serious about being kind of vegetarian. Haha...talk about non-committal. "Hey, I'm Erin, I'm a kind of vegetarian." Yeah, that's how I roll. Anyway, so that's how my week started. It's something we think about and talk about quite a bit and certain documentaries (Forks Over Knives and Food Matters) and thinking about what we need to do to be healthy...it's what we've come up with...kind of vegetarian.
For someone who is going to become kind of vegetarian, you have to have a last hurrah, right? Well, I didn't know it would be a last hurrah at the time, but it seems it was. We revisited 10-01 Food & Drink after a pretty decent visit not too long after it opened. We were in the area, and something made me want to go back. I wasn't sure if I was going to blog about it, but upon eating, I decided heck yes.
I won't rehash all the place business from my first post...it's still the same. Although, we did sit on the patio this time and it was cool. I thought it might be loud out there being so close to Broad Ripple Ave., but it wasn't a distraction at all. I recommend getting out there before you can't anymore!
This is what made me want to reblog this place so soon after my first visit.
I'm going to mostly let the fact that this is homemade mac n' cheese topped with the most delicious bacon ever accompanied by duck chili, speak for itself. Yeah, I said it, duck chili and yummy, yummy bacon. Neither of which are semi-vegetarian...so you may be able to see where I am going with the whole last hurrah bit now. Both of these dishes I ordered off the starters portion of the menu. I went with it and decided to order what sounded good and didn't worry about getting a complete meal. Maybe some of you do this all the time, but often I feel some weird pressure to get a meal when I go out to dinner...especially if I'm going to blog about. But, since I've already been to 10-01, I think that pressure subsided a bit...and am I glad it did. That duck chili was to die for!
I was super happy with my second visit to 10-01. My favorite parts of this visit were the bombtastic duck chili and the mac n' cheese was not at all shabby either. It was a good last meat meal for a little while. Also, this cannot be overlooked, our service was awesome! Our waiter was super friendly and actually stood out as one of the best waiters I've had in awhile. 10-01 is getting it right with the whole package...I'll go back...for some salad, I guess :)
PS - Look out for all the creative things we are going to be up to with our new diet. I will be posting more meals at home, I think, and definitely getting a new perspective on some old and new restaurants.
