A Quiet Night Out

We wanted a quiet night out, so we headed to Gillman Village's Turquoise Room. When we arrived, we realised with some surprise that the restaurant has changed hands and is now called Verve.

A quiet night we certainly got, because throughout our dinner, we were the only patrons in the indoor seating area! I had to ask one of the servers why, because it is very unusual to be in an empty restaurant on a Friday night. We were told Verve is only about a week old, and that there were a few patrons at the outdoor deck at the back. We walked around after dinner to have a look, and the outdoor area certainly looked pretty.

It was very pleasant to be in a cozy little place like this. The food: We started with a Greek salad, and for the mains I had a duck confit pasta, and Roboman had a lamb shank. All were pretty good, definitely above average, although my pasta was a tad too oily. Desserts: We shared a chocolate fudge brownie (I'm boring, I almost always pick a chocolate dessert), which was alright. I really liked the vanilla cognac ice-cream that went with it, and told the server that I could have done with a larger serving of ice-cream ;)

All in all, it was a very nice evening to start off the weekend!
