We had a lovely, (expensive) dinner at Cobblestone's Pub in Lowell on Sunday evening. We were searching via the GPS for someplace "close" that we could find. Cobblestone's had lots of stars, and when I saw that it was owned/managed by the same people that run Moonstone, I was sure it would be a good choice.
It was harder to find than expected because the actual address was on a block that was ONLY 1 block long, and that block was not where the GPS thought it was. When we finally spied the sign, the good news was that there was plenty of parking, a cute little train station (or switching station or something) across the way, as well as an off shoot of the Merrimac river and also a bi-lingual Episcopal church with its traditional welcoming Red Door.
We started off with simultaneous shrimp cocktails (4 enormous, fresh, icy-cold shrimp) and I had a Harpoon 100 Barrell lager. Hubby thought I should have tried a Smutty-nose Old Brown Dog ale or maybe a Flying Dog Raging Bitch IPA. I hope he's not trying to give me a message!
We both had chicken: Parmigiana for me and Marsala for him.
Then we shared a piece of what was apparently flourless chocolate cake WITH ganache. Ooooooooooooooooh, yum!
Mixed messages anyone?
