Perennial on Lockwood

It finally happened...ready or not...we were asked out to dinner...INSIDE a restaurant! <gasp>

All of us fully vaccinated, we took our chances and met up at the new Perennial on Lockwood. One of the many places I couldn't wait to try!

Their patio looks awesome, but after making a reservation, we were seated inside, which is directly behind the new location of Olive + Oak. You can either walk through the patio or walk through Olive + Oak to access the actual restaurant.

I was a little disappointed that even with a reservation, we were seated at the long tables with stools when there were a couple of (distantly spaced) tables open. At least we had a good view of the (very) long bar and TVs. There is a fun, brewery feel to it and there are two private rooms as well.

I bet this will be a great place to hang out after dinner at Olive + Oak or to hang out when there can be more hanging out in groups.

There is not an extensive menu, but there is a full list of drinks and upscale pub food.

While there is a long list of Perrenial beer on draft, there are also cocktails, whiskey, and wine thanks to Olive + Oak next door. I ordered the house spritz, while Pai tried out a couple of Perennial's stouts.

Since we had to wait on our friends, we broke down and split the Farmers' Board. There is never enough cheese for me, but I loved the pickled vegetables, and the charcuterie comes from Bolyard's!

I had a craving for Fish & Chips...maybe because it was Friday? I love shoestring fries! It helps that were cooked in beef fat too.

Everyone ordered winners too. Claire's Grilled Cheese had two kinds of cheese AND jam!

The Patty Melt also included beef from Bolyard's and smothered in raclette!

One of the big splurges there is the Farmstead Bistro Steak, and boy is that worth it. Cooked perfectly.

This is definitely a winner, especially since Olive + Oak will be hard to get into for a while. 

P.S. We didn't have room for dessert but I wish we had!
