Distilled is such a trendy restaurant, buzzing with cool-looking folks, eating cool-looking food, drinking cool-looking drinks. Somehow the boy and I found ourselves here recently, and we took some pointers on what to order based on Donuts's post.
What Katie did not tell us about was that the complimentary popcorn that is worth coming for alone. Cause it's complimentary. And it's popcorn that is airy and light, dusted with brewer's yeast, cumin and garlic, it was slightly sweet, soft on the palate, and delectable.
The cold broccoli salad with duck bacon was good, but I just don't understand why it has to be cold. It'd be pretty amazing slightly warm? Loved the little honey roasted nuts though.
The waffle is more like a sponge, completely drowned in honey butter, with a crisp patty of duck confit on top. The dish is best enjoyed all together, with the chili maple syrup poured all over, with each bite melding sweet and savory.
While every part of me would usually go for the s'mores, we went for the bread pudding.
And it was really quite delicious - slightly eggy, warming, and so tasty with a drizzle of the blackberry compote.
