Fisher's - Dockside - Orange Beach, AL

2 dining experiences. I'm a fan of them both!

When I really begin to think of places that I would indoctrinate into tradition Fisher's would be one of those places. Actually I could probably build an entire resort out of their entire set up. What I love about Fisher's is that they offer 2 unique dining experiences. You can sit dockside, and enjoy the breeze outside, and check out all of the yachts that are docked or you can sit upstairs in the dining room for a multi course high star meal. Both meals are exceptional, and both experiences are worth writing home about (as you see I am lol). 

From the frozen palmer to the oysters, to the awesome dishes I had Fisher's is one of those places I could come for a night out with friends, a date night or just a quite night alone. After dinner you can take a casual stroll up the dock and really enjoy yourself. This place was completly up my alley. 

Food: Flavorful

Ambiance: Refreshing

Pros: Location is quaint yet on the water

Cons: The summer in Alabama tends to be sticky, so eating outside isn't always delightful, if you've spent your day sweaty.

Verdict: I'll be back

When I return to the gulf coast with a special someone, I'll be sure to review the dining room.

Red Rooster - Harlem, New York, NY

So I am a fan of Marcus Samuelson, and I had no idea it was his restaurant until we arrived. I hate to admit it but I am a fan of him, for personal reasons and not quite his cooking, well until I ate at Red Rooster.  When I realized that Red Rooster was his spot, I was super-duper pumped to be there. I must say the food was was pretty good. I had been greatly disappointed with a lot of the food I had while in New York, but Red Rooster was a pleasant surprise. It was the birthplace of some great ideas I've had recently (keep your eyes peeled). The ambiance played heavily into an awesome chill night out. Red Rooster perfect for a night with friends, or even a night with that special someone. There is always music playing, and the later the night the better the music gets. They are know to have great musicians stop by and grace you with their talents, while experiencing the culinary explosions that take place in your mouth while dining in the restaurant. It was just a plus that Red Rooster was a BoBo, I'll definitely be swinging back by there sooner rather than later.

 

Highlights: Great Ambiance. Great Food. Beautiful Establishment. 

UNfavorables: 1 1/2 hour wait on a thursday night.

Final Judgement: It's a win.
