Happy Valentine's Day!

Decisions, decisions...

Beautiful full bar

Some lighting to set the mood...

Now time for some food porn! Beef bone marrow...drools*

Fried meat balls stuffed with quail egg that still had runny yolk inside...dies*

Blood orange and beat salad...gotta have your greens!

   Shepards pie...the pork skins on top are shaped in "MW" for Martins West ;)

Why hello there...

The Moscow Mule- the favorite of the night. Kind of of like your favorite college jungle juice (beer, lemonade, etc... )

Really friggin strong cocktails...


And some sugahhh to finish the night (these were from Whole Foods)

Happy Lovers Day! Yes, it is kind of a cheezy American holiday, but I don't mind having an excuse to try out a new restaurant! This year, the boyfriend and I decided to try something new- since I live/work in San Francisco, and he in San Jose, we decided to meet halfway for some good eats! We ended up deciding on Martins West Gastropub in Redwood City, which is a city in the bay area that neither of us have visited even though it's only 30 minute drive from either of our locations. The city itself has kind of a cozy, old-town feel, which is also carried into many of their local eateries and shops including Martins West Gastropub. They have some pretty tasty Scottish food, which is reminiscent of German food, and a huge array of cocktails, wine, and beer. Tasty food, strong drinks, relaxed ambiance, a bit pricey, but nonetheless induced us into a nice food/drink coma at the end of the night. :)
