Date nights are a great time to stay connected to your significant other… and many are often looking for a great place to eat for that special night out. In this month’s Date Night Dishes, we give you an inside look at the amazing restaurant Pomelo at the Orchard.
Located off 12th Street and Northern, Pomelo offer delicious dishes and if your date night happens to include a child, they have a great kids menu as well. My husband and I got the chance to check out Pomelo recently and it is probably become one of our favorite restaurants in town.
The location is tucked away in a little neighborhood, and is such a cool looking spot inside and out. There is great patio seating for those cool valley nights, and beautiful décor inside.
As for the food, it is simply delicious. We started with a couple of appetizers including the Calamari and Shrimp Fritti and the Blistered Brussel Sprouts. The calamari and shrimp was crispy and so tasty and the brussel sprouts were probably one of the best dishes I’ve tasted in quite a long while.
After our starters, we selected a couple of different menu items to enjoy. My husband had the Orchard Pork Chop, one of his favorite foods! The mashed potatoes that came with the meal were ah-ma-zing! I went for the Salmon dish and it certainly did not disappoint. The fish was so moist and flavorful and the accompanying side dishes were top-notch!
We also decided that since we were checking out the place for the first time that we would enjoy a couple of desserts as well. We tasted a few different items including a beautiful chocolate cake, cheesecake and homemade gelato from their partner spot on site. My husband, who isn’t a huge fan of gelato, quickly proclaimed it as one of the best gelato or desserts he’s ever had! The flavors are simple yet so clear and delectable.
If you haven’t had the chance to enjoy this hidden little spot yet, we definitely recommend you give it a chance. We have already gone back, taking our family for Christmas Eve dinner, and everyone was so pleased with their meal choices- including our kids!
