Cheap Date Night at Garnett's
Garnett's Cafe in the heart of the Fan is featuring Cheap Date Night every night after 6 PM from now until Oct. 1. Any two menu items and a bottle of wine for $30.
Not bad with cute retro decor to boot.
We enjoyed a Domaine de Brau Majelus Merlot. Light in body and pleasant with our sandwiches.
To eat we ordered a Louisville Hot Brown (open-faced with turkey, cheese, mornay sauce, and the ever-important bacon) and Croque Florentine (Black Forest ham, cheese, spinach, onion, and mornay sauce).
Very satisfying with a lovely homemade pickle slice.
After hearing about dessert options we could not resist sharing a slice of lemon chess pie. Yummy.
If the economy is squeezing you a bit, Garnett's is a great place to enjoy some down home goodness at a decent price.
