This year I spent my birthday with some close friends, who are a group of pretty amazing people! We got a table at The Churchill, which has great food and an impeccable atmosphere.
The Churchill is located on 3rd street amidst other unique restaurants and cute shops. The atmosphere was laid back yet refined with a rustic/industrial hybrid feel. With an outdoor patio and an eclectic mix of seating arrangements inside (my favorite was the table where we sat – a long dinner table made of wood complete with two wooden benches), this place is just as much about atmosphere as it is about food! We started off with a bottle of wine, which is half off on Tuesdays! The menu provided so many amazing options that it was difficult to choose. Since we wanted a little bit of everything, we ordered a few different plates to split.
The macaroni and cheese was rich and creamy with a hint of poblano spice. The dish added a unique flair to a traditional childhood staple. The half chicken was served atop a bed of tomatoes, green beans, arugula and mushrooms. The savory taste had a buttery goodness to it that reminded me of a home-cooked meal. We also enjoyed a ricotta and arugula pizza, which had a thin, flaky crust along with meatballs in a homemade tomato sauce.
To end the meal, we all had birthday cake flavored shots, which were to die for! I don’t like vodka, but whatever they used I absolutely loved. The shot smelled like it tasted – the warm vanilla scent of birthday cake. Our server was kind, responsive, fun and made sure that we had a great time. I will definitely return to The Churchill!
