One of my closest friends is getting married and I have the honor of being a bridesmaid, so we had to go dress shopping on a Sunday morning. Fortunately, after the fitting, we were planning on brunch at Old Fields in Greenlawn, New York.
We began our meal with beverages and several of my friends ordered the Old Fields Famous Bloody Mary. I prefer to chew my food and not sip it, so I am not a fan of the Bloody Mary. However, my friends absolutely loved them. A full celery stalk was sticking out of the drink. It was quite impressive and slightly intimidating.
Then, we ordered and enjoyed the Spinach & Artichoke Dip. It was warm and so were the pita chips that were served alongside it. We all dug in and enjoyed our shared dish. This is one appetizer that I frequently order wherever I go and I was not disappointed this time.
For my entree, I ordered the Short Rib Grilled Cheese and Smoked Tomato Bisque. I enjoyed being able to order a combination dish and not choose between a sandwich or a soup. The Bisque was tasty and I could definitely taste the smokiness through the thick and creamy soup. The Grilled Cheese was sweet and crunchy. The Short Rib was a great addition to the sandwich.
All of the ladies were happy with their meals and with the bridesmaid dresses as well, come to think of it. However, if Bloody Marys make you happy, then you should visit Old Fields.
