Happy end of the weekend friends!
I hope you all enjoyed wonderful weekends. Mine was exceptionally jam-packed, but so fun!
Here’s a riddle for you: What’s brown and white and warm all over? You’ll see momentarily.
On Saturday morning, I had the pleasure of enjoying two of my loves:
- Fabulous Food
- Being a photographer
My friend Erica “hired” me to be the official photographer for a special birthday event for some of her best friends.
We headed to Print Works Bistro, in the Proximity Hotel, in Greensboro, NC.
The inside of the restaurant was lovely – open and airy with long white curtains that reminded me of Miami.
Delicious Bloody Mary’s with crab in them!
My hot date.
I went for a mimosa.
A new take on salted butter.
As for eats, Erica and I are great food-sharing-friends. We decided to order a handful of dishes and split them all.
Life’s short. Have dessert first. I mean, they are on the “appetizer” menu. 😉
Did you figure out the riddle? The answer is warm, cream-filled beignets! They even came with dipping sauces – honey and chocolate.
Nom nom nom! These little bundles of delight were so good.
Can you believe four beignets make up half of the order! A full order comes with eight!
We also split a roasted beet salad with one of the best salad dressings I’ve had.
Erica and I split two entree dishes, too:
- Black pepper grilled salmon with honey-lime butter sauce, creme fraiche mashed potatoes and French green beans
- Pan seared scallops over black “forbidden” rice with beurre blanc and sauteed spinach.
The restaurant split these dishes for us, too and even combined them on a single plate! So nice!
The black forbidden rice was especially interesting – crunchy and chewy at the same time.
Everything was seasoned nicely and absolutely delicious. Could this have been the best brunch everrrrr?!
Anywho, I took lots of photos of people in addition to all the food photos, but I’m saving those to be shared with the birthday girls since this was a personal event. 😉
Here are the birthday girls – Catherine and Sarah. Happy birthday ladies!
And a big thank you to Erica for the amazing brunch!!
Reader question: At which restaurant did you have your best brunch ever?

I can’t get over what a gorgeous brunch that is!! I have been wanting to try black rice too. The best brunch I had was at one of the restaurants at the Biltmore in Asheville, NC!
Wow, that food REALLY looks delicious! The dessert too! Reminded me of these Italian things called zeppoles — but that chocolate dipping sauce would have made me swoon! I love the photos!
Love your dress BTW!
I’ve never heard of forbidden rice until I read my newest issue of Clean Eating this weekend – would love to give it a try sometime!
We have a great restaurant in the town I live in that serves up absolutely amazing food – including brunch. It’s a gem – especially since it is located in a town of 7,000!
That restaurant is gorgeous! and all the food looks so fun!
You are GORGEOUS!! I love that dress! 😀
mmmm mimosa 🙂 YUM!
