Father's Day at Mosaic

Happy Monday everyone!

This weekend was just what I needed.  I didn't get nearly as much checked off my to-do list as I had hoped, but I did get some much-needed rest!

Friday night we celebrated Father's Day at a delicious restaurant Mosaic.  It was a gorgeous night so we ate outside!


Mosaic offers a creative spin on Southern comfort food.  They opened in Richmond in 1997 and now have locations in Suffolk, VA and Charleston, SC as well.  Additionally, they offer catering for events big and small.  Check out their blog, here.

We started with Shrimp Wonton and Crab Pita Nachos.  Sadly, we dug in so fast that I didn't get a chance to snap a picture!

For my entree I ordered the Seafood Mac & Cheese which had shrimp, crab, and cavatappi pasta baked in a smoked gouda cream sauce with a parmesan-bacon herb crust.  

yum!

Since it was a Father's Day celebration, we couldn't go without dessert!  CJE and I both ordered the Cookie Monster Cake and both brought home leftovers--it would have been perfect to share.  It was a delicious chocolate cake with a layer of vanilla in the middle with a delectable rich, chocolate icing and cookie crumbles sprinkled on.

heaven in your mouth!

It turned out to be a fabulous Father's Day celebration!

Also, don't forget that I'm accepting YOUR questions for the next week or so to come up with a fun post.  To submit a question or read more, check out Friday's post, here and ask away!

  22. YUM! Did you know in my whole life here I've never been there?! Is it a legit date night spot? I remember babysitting a 3 year old once and asking her what she had for lunch and she just flat out was like "Mosaic". She didn't even flinch! Guess I should catch up with the rest of town! See you soon hopefully :)
