The Watering Hole

Loving this new concept!
The Watering Hole is the Whole Foods Davie newest addition –  a in store bar with a top notch menu. The bar, features seating for eight and a communal table seating up to 20, will serve up a fresh lineup of light bites as well as wine and craft beer.
UNREAL!
Recently invited to a sneak peak menu tasting at The Watering Hole and was throughly impressed! Scanning through the menu, I could have tried a bit of everything for sure, however everything provided on tasting menu, including the wine parings, was wonderful!

Nacho everyday cauliflower ($9) – house potato chips stacked high with crispy cauliflower bites, pico de gallo and drizzled with avocado crema
.
.
I loved this! It was like getting your friend food fix without the grease and the avocado crema was done with a vegan mayo. I promise no one even noticed!

Ancient Grains & Greens ($8) – quinoa, farro, asparagus and green garbanzo with kale pesto.
.
.
This next item was light and refreshing. When you look at the ingredients, it really is a simple concept that would make a nice  week night menu addition for sure!
Paired with the lovely Lolea sangria.

Boom Boom Shrimp ($10) – crispy shrimp drizzled with Thai chili sauce
.
.
Honestly, this dish was great, but the wine paring even BETTER! (Mohua = new fav)
 The shrimp was cooked perfectly and the “boom boom” was just right – not overly spicy.

Rachetta Pizzas ($9) – racket-shaped with a cheese stuffed handle – Chicken Tandoori with Mango Chutney
.
.
Moroccan spices are one of my favorite flavors. This pizza is definitely one for sharing and with ALL your friends because the flavors are ON POINT!

Steak Frites $20 – Nature’s Rancher NY Strip with Black Truffle Fries
.
.
I will be the first to say that I am not a huge steak eater. I never order it when I go out to eat – I am a bit particular with my meat. However, considering I was at Whole Foods, quality was to be expected and it delivered.

Finished it off with a touch of sweetness.
Midnight in Miami ($5) – rich chocolate terrine
Paleo friendly options are available and include Cauliflower,
Vegetable and Egg Stir Fried Rice ($8) and Sauteed Garlic Zucchini Noodles ($8).
.
.
Definitely going to give those a try at my next visit!
