Happy Birthday Goo

It seems that our tradition has been to spend Marisa’s birthday in Boone.   Her favorite restaurant is Twig’s in Blowing Rock.  It is certainly a great choice for a special occasion.  Twig’s charming twig covered arbor beckons you into the cozy restaurant with a charming mountain decor.  The twinkling white lights through the restaurant gives it that festive flair that keeps us coming back.

The fare is always a contemporary touch  and interesting twist on some classic dishes.   One of my favorites is their house speicalty:  Crab Cakes with nantua butter.   Michael is in love with their New Zealand Lamb Chops with mango chutney.  Mady, who has been a vegetarian for 5 years has recently decided to be a carnivore again.  She embraced it with gusto and devoured her NY Strip with cabernet portobello sauce.  Goo and Evan both had the Yellowfin Tuna.

Happy Birthday my sweet Goo
