Farewell Eggplant Parmesan

Farewell Eggplant Parmesan

This will probably be the shortest post that I have ever written.  I will get straight to the point:  Farewell is my new favorite restaurant and may be the reason I eventually become a vegan (just kidding, but…).  The menu is full of amazing comfort food in a casual but somewhat contemporary setting and makes you totally forget about the dairy life.  Lunch today, for instance, included eggplant “parmesan” for yours truly and I left the restaurant feeling well… bloat free… TMI (*too much information, but…).  Unbelievable and it tasted exactly like the “real thing”.


Farewell Burrata

Besides the eggplant “parm”, the burrata is my fav-or-ite.  The texture and creamy interior do not deviate from the original idea of burrata.  I almost forgot that it is not actually dairy based rather cashews and almonds make up the dish.  After constant talks with myself about eating this quantity of food alone, I decided the burrata is best reserved for nights where I am sharing my appetizer.  Seriously, I could take it down by my lonesome.

Quick and to the point:  if you have not been to Farewell, you should visit.  The service is meh so far, which speaks volumes for the food.  It is so good, I have no problem ignoring my annoyed waiter if it means I am one step closer to that burrata or whatever other comfort foods Farewell adds to their repertoire.
