The Loftiest of friends

This weekend Steve and I went to The Loft Cafe & Social Lounge in Edmonds with some friends.
We needed a break from packing the house. A task which seems to be never ending.
The menu had me drooling all day. I couldn't wait to try everything!

Here is Steve and me!

(Today is our 6 month Anniversary btw and we are signing the papers on our new house!!!)

I started off with a Coconut Mojito

For an Appetizer we had the Quattro Formage.

 Which Included; Beecher's reserve white Cheddar, Bleu cheese stuffed peppadew peppers, truffle goat cheese, purple moon cheddar,
Prosciutto di San Daniele, Candied poached pear, pomegranate vinaigrette, seasonal fruits and nuts,
French demi baguette

Delish and perfect for sharing.


Peter had a flaming cheese.

Which they poured 151 on table side after igniting it.
Not much of a plate of food, but it was a good show.

Here it is on fire.

Rachel and I had the Pear and Gorgonzola Ravioli

Caramelized pear, Gorgonzola cheese, Roasted fennel onion crème, toasted pistachios
I wish they had given us more though.

Steve had Surf n' Turf
Apple wood smoked Bacon, grilled beef tenderloin, blackened prawns, Basil whipped russet
potatoes, Marsala demi glace, seasonal veggies, truffle potato hash
Which he gobbled down in a few bites.

Still hungry for more, we shared a sunday.
Served with hot fudge on the side, this tuile dish was filled with the creamiest scoops of chocolate pistachio ice cream.
We should have just ordered this for dinner instead.
Seriously ,this ice cream was amazing.

I also got the Salted Caramel Chocolate Cake:
Sinful chocolate layer cake with ganache and salted caramel sauce, served with whipped cream & berries  (there were no berries though)

It was a great night due to the fact that we were out with friends and eating food. As far as a restaurant review, I would have liked larger portions.
Not to mention the restaurant its self was rather cramped.
I was expecting something more sprawling or lofty (pun intended) and lounge like. 
Maybe next time we will just hit up Purple.
Sorry, Loft, you fell a little short.. and there were so many other things I wanted to try!
