Last week, in a rare break of form, MK went out on Friday night. Oh, perhaps it's not what youngsters these days call going out, but it was livelier than, well, Ms. K's apartment. The site was Hinterland, a spot newly opened in the Third Ward.
Well informed vegetarian hypochondria/fastidiousness notwithstanding, a good time was had by all. Ms. Kansas supped on tempura goat cheese stuffed zucchini. Zucchini are admittedly not MK's favorite veggies--she is not much of gourd kind of girl. However, these toothsome little morsels were accompanied by shiitake mushrooms, totsoi and bamboo rice saute, pickled carrot salad and sunchoke puree. It was a delicately savory melange. Hell, eating there was worth the rosemary-infused bread alone!
The decor was New-Mexico-with-a-trust-fund:lots of bleached out woods and dark browns. And texture, texture, texture! The service was good, and the crowd was rather smart.
