Last night Andrew and I headed to Tiny Boxwood’s for a dinner date. I had told him the day before that I was taking us on a date tomorrow night and he agreed:)
We had only been to Tiny’s for dinner together once and that was before we were married (2 1/2 years ago!). I will occasionally pop in there for a latte during the week, but (last time a checked) they do not have wifi. So it’s not an option for a working coffee outing.
I LOVE the atmosphere at Tiny Boxwoods, which is what keeps pulling me back. I think it is easily the most gorgeous restaurant in Houston, but I guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder so maybe some would disagree. The restaurant is connected to a nursery filled with gazebos, red wagons, & succulents. Love it love it love it.
Weather-wise it was pleasant enough outside (and we didn’t make a reservation for inside and all the tables were reserved haha), so we ate outside.
Dinner started with some teas + waters. The water cups were miniature. LOOK! (I guess I should’ve put my hand in for reference.)
For dinner I got the burger and Andrew got a risotto dish.
It was a lamb burger with smoky goat cheese and aioli. I learned that I don’t like lamb! I actually really disliked the burger and would never ever ever order it again. I’m a Smashburger burger person. The fries were epic tho. It was like they had been peeled off the potato with a potato peeler. All of them were so crispy.
Andrew’s dish was a bison filet + blue cheese risotto + cherries. The verdict from him was…”it’s really rich and really good.” This is why neither Andrew or I could be food writers…we don’t have fancy adjectives to describe food!
For dessert I ordered a decaf latte + one of their famous chocolate chip cookies. I really like their cookies, BUT for my Houston people…i think I may like the Common Bond chocolate chip cookie better. Thoughts? If only the Common Bond one would come without walnuts.
Tiny’s now has a new location in Houston called Tiny’s Milk & Cookies, which (as you guessed) just serves milk + cookies. I’m looking forward to stopping by soonish.
After dinner we wandered around the nursery a bit. Or at least I did while Andrew patiently waited for me to stop oooing and ahhing at things.
Today I don’t start seeing clients until 2 in the afternoon, so I’m planning on sleeping in a wee-bit later than usual before knocking out some blog work.
Happy almost Friday, everyone!
