We’re always early, Luke and I. A few Fridays ago we picked up our marriage license downtown and then headed over to OX for dinner. The restaurant doesn’t open until 5pm and it was 4pm. Lucky for us, there is a bar next door where you can grab a few drinks and snacks while you wait. The best part is that you can put your name on the list while you’re waiting with your beer(s).
Once we finally got into the restaurant, we could hardly contain our excitement. Seriously, we were like kids in a candy store. I was running around snapping photos of everything (typical) and Luke dove straight for the beer list and food menu (also typical).
You’re served fresh baked bread with homemade chimichurri. If you’re lucky, you’ll receive a few samples of the coconut curry bisque, compliments of the chef… I’m pretty sure they give this to everyone.
Spring Onion, Blue Cheese, Potato & Poblano Empanada- and -Fresh Clam Chowder, Smoked Marrow Bone, Spring Onion, Jalapeño Now this chowder. I have to say that I was a little skeptical to try bone marrow, as I’ve never had it before. But Luke talked me into it. I’m not lying when I say this is one of the best soups I’ve ever had. Ever. It’s going to be real hard to go back to a traditional clam chowder now.
The Asado ArgentinoGrilled Short Rib, House Chorizo & Morcilla Sausages, Skirt Steak, Sweetbreads, Fried Potato, Green Salad OX most definitely caters to the meat eaters. And while I’m typically not the biggest meat eater (I usually stick with chicken) I found everything to be mouthwatering & amazing. Through the duration of our meal we kept saying how great everything was and how we didn’t want to stop eating! But, since I’m not a fan of being uncomfortably full, I stopped pretty early on – which meant we had a lot left to take home with us!
