Okay, I am finally caught up. We switched from Fulton's (after Nicki and Todd had a very disappointing meal there in May) to Raglan Road. This was a tough sell for us because Nicki and Todd hated it; but I've read so many great reviews that I decided it was time to give it a try ourselves.

Glad you enjoyed Mama Melrose. I've never understood the "dislike' of the place; we've never had a bad meal there. We did have a ressie for this September but I changed it to 50's Prime Time because we've not been to 50's in about 12 years and I felt the need to go back.

Your breakfasts at Sunshine Season look so good...we are definitely doing that this trip.

And I cnanot wait to FINALLY try the new Caramel shop in Germany (they were working on it when we were there last September).

Hi neighbor! I'm a big fan of going to wineries on weekends! This summer is going to be so lame. I started a diet (stupid wedding!) so we're not going down as often

That's quite the change! I'll go for a sit down meal over buffet any day, so I think it was a good change

Cava del Tequila

Chugging right along. I have exactly two pictures between my pictures from Germany and pictures from Mexico I guess you don't need to wait until my Trip Report to guess what we did that day...

After our snacks in Germany, we stopped by the bakery in Norway to pick up 2 school breads. One for Geoff, one for my Mom, both for breakfast the next morning

Then we made our way over to Mexico. And we got a table at Cava del Tequila. And we sat for a good hour and a half Good times.

Before going in:


I suppose the strollers should have been a warning...
We took the back corner table for two. Sitting next to us was a family with 2 toddlers. I was surprised to see any kids in here, let alone 2 toddlers. But they were finishing up and on their way out. Our waitress quickly came over and asked us what we wanted to drink. I knew right away! The Blood Orange Margarita is the first one I tried here...and the only one...I can't tear myself away from it to try anything else.

Description from their website:
Quote:
Blood Orange
Familia Camarena premium silver Tequila, orange liqueur, a sweet-tart mix of blood orange juice and hibiscus syrup, topped with fruit foam served on the rocks with a hibiscus Himalayan salt rim
Geoff didn't know what he wanted (he's not really big on tequila) so our waitress, who was awesome, pointed him in the right direction by asking him a few questions. He settled on the Pomegranate Margarita which is made with Mezcal instead of tequila, so it had a smokier flavor to it.

Description:
Quote:
Pomegranate Margarita

Oro de Oaxaca Mezcal, pomegranate liquor, pineapple juice, melon liquor and agave nectar served on the rocks with a hibiscus Himalayan salt rim
We also placed an order for their Queso Blanco, a new addition to their menu. Before long, our food and drinks came out:


Blood Orange Margarita:


Pomegranate Margarita:


Picture on the wall:


Now, while we were sitting there, another family with THREE toddlers came in and sat down. And were promptly surprised that there wasn't anything on the menu for the kids. ...the word "tequila" is in the name of the place. And they were disappointed that there were only snacks on the menu and not full meals. Now, I know that most people don't do copious amounts of research before taking the trip, but when a place is called Cava del TEQUILA, what part about that gives you the impression that it would be a great place to sit and grab a bite to eat with your kids?! Maybe it's because I'm not a parent, but I was totally shocked by this. I'd love to hear from some parents out there and see if I'm way off base, but REALLY, it's a tequilla bar... In all fairness, the bar was awesome. They made a fruit based smoothie for the kids that the parents were amazed by how great it was. So they were totally accommodating.

Anyway, we were thoroughly enjoying ourselves, and now that we had some entertainment, Geoff decided to be brave and give straight tequila a try (I can't drink that much to begin with, plus I was driving, so I stuck just with my one drink and I was nursing it.) Our waitress, who again, was awesome, recommended one for him to try:


On the left is a chaser that is supposed to ease the burn of the tequila. Geoff thought the chaser was really spicy (and he likes spice!) and was more difficult to handle than the tequila! But he really enjoyed the tequila.

Note: I think I forgot to mention that I've been using this little beauty when I could...

I got it on our trip back in October and it's more than paid for itself. It's worth mentioning that la Cava del Tequila does not take TiW! Certainly wouldn't stop me from returning, but just an FYI.


ETA: The family next to us also made a stink about gluten intolerance. Everything on their "menu" is gluten free except they were double checking the cheese dip (it was new and they weren't positive.) I don't remember what the outcome of that was.

great post about Cava del Tequila - I think the best part about that place is all the different tequilas and learning about them and trying them, etc. ... oh, and the margarita's aren't bad either

Our last trip we did bring our daughter in there with us (she was 8mo. old at the time), so I don't think the concept of brining kids there is crazy - but we knew what it was and didn't expect them to have stuff for kids there.

oh, and they do let you get stuff/drinks to go so that is always a great option if you have kids but want a great tasting margarita

This was the first time we got them and sat versus getting one to go.

When the people were asking what their kids could have, Geoff (loudly) suggested they give them a margarita...at least they'd be quiet the rest of the day The parents ignored us.

At 8 months old she was probably sleeping? These kids were like 3.

And I think it's different if you know what kind of place it is versus expecting a tequila bar to cater to your kids...

Looks like you had a good time at Cava del Tequila. I'm not a tequila drinker or margarita drinker, so I doubt we'll ever go.

What were those parents thinking? I am a mother, and I would NEVER have brought my kids into a bar atmosphere like that when they were younger. And, sad to say, they are both old enough to go themselves now.

So what you're saying is next time I should drink a second for you??
