Olive and Ivy Inspiration.

I went to Olive and Ivy Restaurant in Scottsdale with my mentor tonight. I've passed this sparkling restaurant about a bajillion times while walking along the Scottsdale Waterfront and just assumed it was another pusher of tasteless safe foods. I was pleasantly surprised. The food is amazing. We caught the tail end of happy hour so we took advantage of the cheap eats; Hummus and Bruschetta with asparagus and goat cheese. For dinner I took a chance on an interesting sounding dish, Sweet Potato Cannelloni with Roasted Mushrooms and Toasted Almonds. At first bite, I thanked my mother for nurturing my adventurous spirit.  Oh my goodness, I have no idea how they packed so much flavor into this seemingly simple dish. I am now on the hunt to replicate this dish. I will post my attempt as soon as I am able to make it edible. In the mean time I think I'll do so more (ahem) research at Olive and Ivy.

The conversation was so good that I forgot to whip out my camera for a quick shot of the grub, so the internet provides.*

Aside from the from the amazing food, the restaurant features an eye catching amount of Niche Modern Pharos Pendant Lights.
