Cheesecake Factory

Dinner with an old friend last week, at one of my favorite chains.

We have been going to this location for a very long time and have always enjoyed it. Though I have to wonder how much longer this location will remain open, as it is located in the dying Source Mall.

Chocolate martinis no longer appear on the menu, but the bartender was very happy to make one for me -- smooth and creamy and just slightly sweet.

The bread basket contains both white and whole wheat, served with sweet butter.

We chose two appetizers. Stuffed mushrooms were pretty much standard, ok but not exciting. Fried macaroni and cheese was interesting -- macaroni and cheese, shaped into balls, breaded and fried, then served with Parmesan cheese and marinara sauce. Very rich, overindulgent dish.

My entree was Moroccan chicken -- grilled chicken cutlets served over couscous with fruit and nuts. There's just a little bit of a kick to the dish, not spicy but definitely interesting seasonings.

Of course we had dessert. How could you not, in a place called The a Cheesecake Factory? I always go for the plain cheesecake served with strawberries and whipped cream. Heaven on a plate.
