Business card from Clementine

I nor­mal­ly take pic­tures of my food but I was so excit­ed about the meal that I for­got.

Walk­ing into Clemen­tine, I know imme­di­ate­ly that I’m going to love it;  it’s casu­al, warm and wel­com­ing.  It’s a place where you can enjoy a deli­cious meal with­out feel­ing like you have to wear stiff Sun­day clothes.

The appe­tiz­ers look so deli­cious that I decide to order two. One, the Duck Nachos, I share with my hus­band and the oth­er, Escar­got, is my entrée.

These nachos are the best I’ve ever had. The chips are crispy and taste home­made.  The top­pings include: a creamy and spicy cheese sauce, an avo­ca­do cream, sour cream, Pico de Gal­lo and, of course, duck.

My hus­band had the grilled Jerk Leg of Lamb Steak.  The meat was juicy and cooked to per­fec­tion.  A bit dis­ap­point­ed, the Jerk rub was more sweet than spicy, not what you would expect from a Jerk rub but still deli­cious.

Their web­site men­tions that some of the ingre­di­ents for this dish come from Tor­tille­ria Sinaloa’s Kitchen (a restau­rant I must try next) and the duck is local­ly sourced. Love that com­mu­ni­ty sup­port!  By the way, Clementine’s meats and veg­gies are all local­ly sourced and they have  their own Char­cu­terie (ham, sausages and pates).

The nachos are gen­er­ous­ly sized and and would be awe­some with their Wednes­day Hap­py Hour (per­haps my next vis­it).

After I savor every bite and near­ly lick my fin­gers, my order of Escar­got arrives.  The Escar­got are cooked in a creamy thyme sauce with chunks of Shi­itake mush­rooms and shal­lots.  To soak up the sauce, it’s served with some toast tri­an­gles. The Escar­got are deli­cious and more than enough as an entrée.

I can’t wait to go back and try their Taco Tues­day or Wednes­day Hap­py Hour or Sat­ur­day home­made muffins .…
