date night

My boyfriend and I went out last night to this quaint little wine bar in downtown Wilmington, Fortunate Glass. I have to tell y'all about the amazing food and ambiance.

The bar is small and cozy, with only a few tables. We sat in a secluded wooden booth that is set into the wall, once you sit down you feel like the only two people in there. After reading the EXTENSIVE wine list, we chose a nice pinot gris with hints of melon and honey, it was delicious.

We ordered tapas that came throughout the meal. We started with a traditional Italian appetizer of procuitto and melon, very light and refreshing. We then had endive stuffed with goat cheese, shaved almonds and chunks of mango. SO good!! We were then served brie and spicy salami with cranberries, pears, and crackers. On to the next bottle and dessert!

The dessert trio we ordered was OUT of this world! We had a lemon cheese cake with shaved almonds, a chocolate mousse soufflé, and the best of all goat cheese mousse. it was indescribable. Mixed with the raspberry sauce that surrounded the plate, one of the most decadent things I have ever tasted. It had the tang of goat cheese with a light airy texture. I could eat it every day.

It was a perfect night with amazing food and great company!
