FORAGE – Restaurant Review

I thoroughly enjoy the food at Forage.  Every time I dine there, I leave with the most satisfied feeling.  I’m not stuffed, I’m just perfectly content.  Plus I LOVE the whole story behind the restaurant and how they invite local gardeners to bring home-grown produce into Forage, and if they find it fit they will add it to a salad or build a dish around it for the next day… and in exchange the gardener walks away with something tasty from their daily specials.  How brilliant is that?

Forage touches my palate the way it craves to be touched.  It tells me the person preparing the food is a wonder in the kitchen.  That person must adore their job, because the final result is perfect.  What makes Forage stand out and sparkle more than majority of places is…. usually this caliber of food is served solely in upscale restaurants, and at Forage it’s being served more in a cafeteria setting, which sets ease to the place.  Anyone who appreciates delicious food can come to Forage  and sit down next to a family, or two friends chatting away, and not have to worry about the kind of shoes their wearing or if their hair is combed perfectly in order to take pleasure in a great meal.  LOVE IT!

What we ate:

My friend A-dre had the bacon carmelized onion gruyere cheese quiche (pictured above), wild arugula salad with radish shallot lemon vinaigrette and the strawberry basil lemonade.  She didn’t leave a crumb behind.  That’s a statement in itself.  Here’s A-dre quenching her thirst.

Here’s a photo of my plate.  Everything was perfectly seasoned, and had the right hints of spice.  So fresh and delicious.

Jidori chicken from the rotisserie, Gloria’s broccoli, and Citrus/Fennel market lettuce salad.

My plate when I left….I nearly licked it clean.
