Mega Post

We hadn't been to The Mediterranean Cafe for several weeks. Since our last visit, they've really spruced up the place. We started with the complimentary Pita and Herbed Olive Oil... I had the Veggie Kabob Sandwich with double Hummus $6.99. So pretty I posted two pics!
Fresh, colorful vegetables in down town Charles Town! Whodathunkit?! Now that table games have been approved at Charles Town Raceway, we'll probably be seeing lots of new things in West Virginia.
Mr. SV had his usual Mediterranean Pasta...
Dinner was at The Hillbrook Inn, where the chef, Christine Hale, cooks up some tasty and healthy fare. We snacked on these Curried Almonds in the living room/hearth area while waiting for our 8pm dinner to begin...
Longingly looking at our table from the living room... it was tough waiting till 8pm to eat dinner...
The first course was Mushrooms on Bruschetta...
followed by Tomato Soup with Dill...
Penne with Toasted Pine Nuts...
Roasted Red Pepper stuffed with a mixture of Tofu and Vegetables. On the side -- Asparagus, Broccoli, Grilled Red Pepper and Rice...
Mixed Field Greens with Lime Vinaigrette...
Follow Your Heart Cheddar w/Carr's Crackers and Grapes. FYH has really improved their product. Chef Hale had to show me the package because I couldn't believe how tasty it was.Grilled Fresh Pineapple for dessert...Phew! A great meal that included all you can drink vino. The only negative (which I wasn't even aware of at the time) was the man at the next table giving me the stink eye whenever I took pics. Fortunately, I couldn't see him, Mr. SV told me about it later.

That food all looks fantastic!

What a feast! It all looks fab. I love restaurants that have you sit in a cozy reception room before dinner; it's fun to relax and have a drink and it builds expectations for the coming meal.

Yum! I can't believe the restaurant had FYH and crackers! One of my all-time fave snacks (with wine, of course), and not the kind of thing I'd expect to find anywhere aside from my (or some other vegan's) kitchen. Sweet!
