Supper Club - Take 1

My roommate is a very very smart lady!  She came up with the idea that a group of fabulous ladies should meet up every month to enjoy a few cocktails, good food and even better company.

Great idea right?!  Right!

So for our first outing we decided on Lolita's in the Back Bay. (Literally across the street from the Copley T stop! )

I was the first to arrive and headed to the bar to get this delicious spicy cocktail.

Spicy Cucumber Margarita
This was the perfect cocktail!  It was a bit spicy, full of citrus and just enough tequila for my taste buds.  Kudos to the bartender who was open to talking about the different flavors and types of cocktails on the menu.

I will admit that I was a little nervous at first.  The vibe was uber hipster/swank when I walked in and I was sure I was not cool enough to be there!  However, the bar staff was extremely nice and knowledgeable and within moments the rest of the girls had arrived!
Awful lighting, but AMAZING complimentary grapefruit granita with tequila on top!
Once seated (VERY PROMPTLY) we decided to get a bunch of small plates to share and then each get our own plates of tacos.  Highlights included to die for cornbread and roasted brussel sprouts that I would fight for!
Mahi Mahi Tacos

Cevische Sampler
This ceviache was really really delicious!  It can be hard to find a great ceviache outside of the tropics/South America but they did a fantastic job!!!
Chocolate bread pudding
It is pretty well known that I am not a huge dessert girl. If given the choice, I would pick a cheese platter over a dessert 9 times out of 10.  This night however, was that 10th time!  This Chocolate espresso bread pudding was intense, creamy and amazingly delicious.  I think for me personally the contrast between the intense chocolate and the creamy coffee ice cream was flavor heaven!

Oh and then, when you get your check.. you also get free cotton candy!  Yeah, I don't care how old you are, you will always smile when you are given cotton candy!!

I am really looking forward to our next outing!  Any suggestions on where we should go?  Boston or Greater Boston locations welcomed!

Cotton Candy w/ our check!  Hell yeah!!!
