For restaurant week summer edition, the girlfriends dined at The Elephant, a new American restaurant in one of our favorite neighborhoods Mount Vernon. The Elephant was unexpected to say the least, even after rolling in late the staff was super accommodating (They even had a place to put my drenched umbrella)! The building was rich with history. The brass and wood detailing made us feel as if we were in the 1920’s. Of course, we ordered from the restaurant week prefix menu. The first course we tried was the heirloom tomato salad which was perfectly seasoned, a play on the panzella salad with the croutons was a great touch. We also tried the BL”T” slider that included bacon, lettuce, watermelon, and basil pesto. The watermelon was so refreshing a perfect complement to the saltiness of the bacon. For the second course, the chilled Asian noodles is a must have! The sesame dressing was everything. The short rib was super tender my only complaint is that there wasn’t more. The jerk chicken pizza was done just right, the jerk chicken was not overly spicy, and the mango sealed the authentic tropical taste. For dessert, we had the cinnamon roll and the chocolate peanut butter tart. After dinner we explored the upstairs lounge recommended by the owner Steven. We were immediately mesmerized by the white marble bar. We got lucky going on a Thursday night, picture this enjoying a live jazz band under a gold chandelier and a candle lit atmosphere (major speak easy vibes). It was an amazing night we will be back and not just because I forgot my umbrella!

Day. Night.

This Saturday was way too live to just pick one event. So, we didn’t! Our Saturday started at the Motor House Baltimore for beautifulpplusa’s something like a juke joint. From the moment we walked in it was impossible to miss the impeccable fashion, the contagious laughter, and the high energy on the dancefloor, this party embodied beautiful people. The perfect mix of afro beats and R&B. We couldn’t help but to move (thundaclap for the win!). The specialty cocktails were the Soul Glow an old fashioned with a little ginger kick and Cut a Rug a pineapple punch with sweet almond, fresh mint, and basil. This day party was a great kick off for the rest of the night. 1D3213A4-3B7C-4966-A9AD-CB5B9691BD9FCF245056-A00E-4702-83A3-C6AD66BD9DCB7DBA21BF-D17E-45A9-936C-C84A821D46CBDB622B55-D5D4-4786-A776-5091612A13DC
Onto the next event… The Night Brunch this sold out event did not disappoint! Greeted in the parking lot by Outstanding by the Gap band and the amazing smell of Chef Morrow’s cooking we immediately got family cookout vibes (When we saw the meat cage we knew it was about to go down!) The consistency of the chill atmosphere throughout the entire night with such a large group of people was unbelievable. The board games were an awesome touch! Imagine playing connect four while jamming to Bruno and Cardi … yeah doesn’t get much better. Thank you, Jason, for this innovative event to kick off our summer. 63BA3E5F-C9CB-4DD5-BC76-A31488C19088019D7545-DFFF-4070-8A36-598935B2E460A1E797B0-30DA-44D5-97E7-64B984F7E6A8
Our night would not be complete without junk food reflection. Shout out the good people at LB Skybar for leaving the kitchen open a few minutes later so we could have girl talk over pizza and tacos.0766266E-437E-4764-90A5-8202C7958C2F

And then there was Pizza!

After weeks of our favorite local bloggers raving and our millionth replay of the Nutella calzone Instagram videos we made it to Midici in Whitemarsh. We were pleasantly surprised by the easy parking on a Friday night. The atmosphere felt warm and friendly we were immediately greeted by the manager and the chef. At first glance you think upscale sit-down restaurant but the self-seating and ordering gave us classic pizzeria vibes. Seeing as it was national meatball day we thought we had our dish figured out but the smell of that pizza though… So, pizza it was! we tried the margherita and egg and bacon pizzas. If you are looking for an authentic Italian pizza the margherita is for you! The dough was chewy yet crisp from the brick oven. The egg bacon pizza… There was potato, sausage, bacon, and an egg in the middle need I say more (didn’t think so!) For our healthier option we had the burrata and pear which did not disappoint! And for the grand finale *cues Rocky theme music* we had the infamous Nutella Calzone and yes it was everything we had dreamed of and so much more! Warm pizza dough, fresh berries drizzled Nutella a perfect ending to a delicious dinner. Whether post movie date night or after a shopping trip with the girls Midici is a go to and an awesome new flare to the Avenue in Whitemarsh!
Keep it Classy!
