Union Social

October is a busy birthday month for me.  The first of a few dinners this month was kicked off last week at Union Social.

Lively atmosphere, there was a dining room side and a bar side. We were on the loud bar side. IMG_5930

A simple menu with some spins on apps, salads, soups, burgers and flatbreads and daily drink specials. I’m down with any place that has $5 house wines!

The house red to start my weekend. IMG_5941

Calamari to tease the tastebuds. IMG_5936

Short rib and gorgonzola longboard flatbread. I am obsessed with gorgonzola, well any kind of blue cheese. The short rib was tender and the cheese flavourful. And the portion size was ridiculous. Loved this. IMG_5939

Some more wine, this time a Malbec, my fave variety. Can’t remember the name, but in the end it didn’t matter, it did the trick. IMG_5937

Of course dessert. Mars bar brownie and mint chocolate chip ice cream for the birthday celebrant. IMG_5944

Cranberry rhubarb creme brulee for me. Love that crispy sugar top. Delicious cream custard with bits of fruit. A first for me. IMG_5945

Good food, smooth wine, yummy desserts and great friends. Always a pleasure. =)
