San Diego Restaurant Week - Gabardine

Gabardine, so it seems, is a firm, fabric twill weave,
and a fine place to dine, you should roll up a sleeve.


Should you fancy a spot for tasty neighborhood fare,
walk through the front doors, pull yourself up a chair.


In its very first year to take part in Restaurant Week,
you'll feel right at home with an interior, 
so cozy and chic.


The week's kind offerings are diverse, and quite hearty,
you'll find that it's not just a bunch of Malarkey.

Add a glass of wine to your meal priced at 1845.48 pence,
or seize the built in champagne flute effervescence.


A fine plate of heirlooms and arugula
from the first course arrives,
the drizzle of dressing is a light, pleasant surprise. 


Then onwards to dance with a plate of bubbly, white cheddar cheese,
a traditional comfort, to place you at ease.


Enter the main course, 
a flat steak chimchurri with panache,
a dish of a rich, roasted corn, side succotash.


Wrap it up with a tasty, Pastry Chef bake,
a dessert of berry and lemon poppyseed cake.

That must have been some effort to make it all rhyme, kudos to you! And the food looks awesome, of course, especially that cake!

I'm a regular rhymin' Simon. At least, I try to be for my Restaurant Week series. Thanks heaps for the warm words Vicky! I much appreciate appreciation. The cake was dee-vine! Go get a slice, you shan't be disappointed x

I want to pitch a tent on top of that berry and lemon poppyseed cake and live there! (Yes, of course I'd have to eat my way to the bottom, and then I'd just order me another slice and pitch again.)

It does look like a lovely spot to make camp, Sparkle! I would happily join you atop for nice chatter and marshmallow roasting in the fluffy bits of whipped cream x
