Saturday, Evan and I were invited to a couple’s baby shower in Memphis. The shower started at noon, so I convinced Evan to take a well deserved Saturday off work and do brunch beforehand. As I have mentioned before, we love to try out new restaurants and Saturday was no different. We had heard that The Carolina Watershed was a great spot for brunch, so we decided to try it out.
Evan and I love to try out new restaurants in Memphis and our anniversary dinner was the perfect occasion to try something new. Evan booked us a table at Andrew Michael’s Italian Kitchen using the Open Table app. (We always use this app when booking reservations) It’s a small restaurant in the heart of east Memphis, located on Brookhaven Circle.
We love their sister restaurant, Hog and Hominy, and had several people recommend AM Italian Kitchen to us. If you’re a picky eater, then you might as well cross this off the list. We love Italian food and are not picky eaters at all so this was right up our alley!
The waiter showed us to our table and wished us a happy anniversary while pointing to a card on the table. The entire staff had signed a card for us. He explained the menu to us and suggested that we choose the “chef’s tasting” if we were unsure of what to order. He said it would be less thinking involved and a pleasant surprise each time because it was five courses. We decided that sounded easy enough, so why not? Each course that was brought out to us was explained by the waitress so that we would know what we were eating. Everything we tried was amazing and we will definitely be going back.
Check out their menu here.
I don’t know about you but I love having an occasion to get dressed up! Check out this super cute fall jumpsuit that I wore Saturday night. I have a hard time finding jumpsuits that aren’t too long for me but this one worked great with my platform sandals. The adjustable straps made it work a lot better too!
The valet did not get the best picture of us… HA!
Let me know if you have ever tried this restaurant, or if you have any other restaurant recommendations.
