Every few months or so, I will trek an hour and a half to Winston-Salem, NC to visit friends from college, hit up the closest Whole Foods to Charlotte, NC and dine at 6th and Vine for their fried goat cheese salad. And come November, I will add “buy cute clothes from H&M” to that list.
Instead of dinner at 6th and Vine however, it was a new dining destination at Mozelle’s Fresh Southern Bistro. Mozelle’s is named after the owner’s grandmother and offers such Southern fare as fried chicken, meatloaf, shrimp and grits and tomato pie from the tiny restaurant decorated in cheerful yellow.
Everything on the menu looked delicious,
but my mind was made up when the waitress spouted off swordfish over a bed of lobster risotto as one of their specials. A work of art almost too pretty to eat…almost.
No post-dinner dessert since I had dessert earlier at Dewey’s Bakery, famous for cake squares. And cake smoothies.
What they call a pink lemonade smoothie is made with ice, milk, a pink lemonade cake square and love. Why I had never thought to put cake in my smoothies before I will never know!
No trip to Winston-Salem is complete without a stop at Whole Foods. It won’t be until 2012 that I see this in Charlotte, NC:
Sunday’s lunch=Hello, lover!
If it were legal to marry a salad bar, I would. Whole Foods salad bar kicks Harris Teeter salad bar’s ass.
My favorite was the curry chicken salad and the potato salad. And if Dewey’s put all of my favorite candy in a bowl and called it candy salad, I would want to marry it too.
Haha, every downtown needs a phallic building. It’s the Wachovia building, but I think something else entirely if you know what I mean…and I think you do.
Other funny thing spotted in a parking lot over the weekend:
Mary Catherine Gallagher would be so proud of the Winston-Salem Kohl’s!
