Ruth and I started our meal with Caesar salads, while Sheila chowed down on the complimentary hush puppies. The salads were dressed with the perfect amount of Casear, sprinkled with parmesan cheese, and topped with crunchy croutons. The hushpuppies had just enough bite with a touch of jalapeno.
Our entrees arrived just in time. Ruth had the crispy fried catfish filet with steamed asparagus. The filet was just the right size, and the asparagus was the perfect compliment. Sheila ordered the ribeye po’boy with fries. It was quite a sandwich. The ribeye was tender and juicy. It came with an onion gravy on the side, just the right compliment to the po’boy. I had the grilled chicken with Southwestern spiced fruit and vegetable salsa and a side of fries. The seasoning on the chicken combined with the tangy fruit salsa left my tastebuds wanting more.
No girls lunch is complete without dessert. At the suggestion of our server, Sheila chose the Key Lime Pie. Ruth went with the cheesecake, and I chose the classic brownie with ice cream. The presentation of each was almost as sweet as the desserts themselves. The Key Lime Pie was just the right mix of spicy citrus and sweet, neither flavor overpowering the other. The cheesecake was warm and creamy, but not too heavy. The brownie melted in my mouth and had just the right balance of a crunchy top with a soft, warm center.
As usual, the Warehouse was a great choice for our girls’ lunch and is an ideal choice for a business lunch or special occasion dinner. If you stop by, be sure to tell Michael we said “hello.”
