Mushy Peas

While in Las Vegas Charlie and I ate dinner at a Gordon Ramsey restaurant.

Gordon Ramey's restaurant is called "Pub and Grill".

Since I am a fan of Master Chef Junior I thought it would be interesting to try his cuisine.

The theme is British pub with a sixties vibe.

The waitresses were dressed in Carnaby Street hound's-tooth check mini-skirts.

The hostess asked us if we’d like a tall or short table.  We chose short and waited just a minute until the personable maitre’d led us to our table for 2 right on the perimeter of the restaurant so we could people watch while we were eating.

I chose from "Pub Pies" and Charlie picked from "Classic Ramsey".

The menu had a good variety but we stuck with British comfort food.

The fish was light and crispy.

Charlie chose fish and chips which was served with mushy peas.  Our waitress told us very few people like the peas.  We thought they were delicious: peas and mint.

The small pot pie was very filling and extremely flavorful.

This was one of the best meals we had during our travels out west. Unfortunately we didn’t have room for dessert.

What’s the best meal you’ve ever eaten?

Welcome to The Glade, where the second generation of renovations has just begun and the mania about our home, music and other passions fill our days and nights. We’re Charlie and Jo in the music world; Mary Jo and Charles to family; and JoJo and Charlie to each other. We are renovating a midcentury house in a Victorian historic district where we want to live there the rest of our lives. It's a 1946 house located in Maryland. We were married in this house. Thus far (pre-blog) we refinished cabinets, added a window seat (still working on the cushion), rearranged a wall in the guest house due to sink/vanity replacement, planted a vegetable garden, and other quick and not-so-quick fixes. So this latest zeal for construction is the result of my having lived here since 1997 and feeling a need to ready the house for the next chapter and beyond.

  1. Those both look like very good choices. Guess I need to go eat breakfast! I seem to be running very late this morning. What’s your next stop?
