Parenting Hack: Board games, a toy kitchen & cocktails

Do you have kids? If the answer is yes, then you need to check out Happy Belly.  You can have great food, COCKTAILS [or wine] and your kids don’t have to sit still. I repeat, siting still is not required.

Just think: You don’t have to juggle your desire to have an adult conversation with your role as restaurant-crayon conflict negotiator (we all have been there, when every child needs to use the blue crayon at that moment or they may die).

PLUS your kids will actually have fun too!

 

Happy Belly is open for breakfast, lunch & dinner at 3 Duncan Street in Gloucester http://www.HappyBellyGloucester.com 978.317.7571

Ohana’s Prix Fixe – Chef Enx lets his creativity shine through

Merriam-Webster defines Prix Fixe as “a complete meal offered at a fixed price.” Ohana defines Prix Fixe as “a delicious three course dinner with ever changing choices.”  “The food is a delicious odyssey of tastes.”

In addition to popular regular items such as Mongolian Baby Back Ribs (indescribably good), Ohana Caesar Salad (a beautifully presented de-constructed salad) and Butterfish (Misoyaki marinated- seared and baked to perfection), Chef Enx creates new items on Ohana’s Prix Fixe menu.   This menu changes regularly with choices of 5-6 appetizers, 4-5 main courses and 2 desserts.

Here are some examples of what New American Cuisine can be all about:

Mochiko Dusted Bass, Pork Belly, Watermelon Curry, Scallion Lo Mein. This dish combines subtle Asian spices from Japan, India and China with fresh local ingredients.

Dusted Bass

 

Calamari Pad Thai with Grape Salad – A new take on two popular favorites combining calamari with the classic Thai rice pasta and adding a bonus of sweetness with a grape salad

 

Calamari Pad Thai Shrimps and grape salad tofu puree

Do not forget dessert:  Here is a delicious one:

Boston Creme Pie with banana creme anglaise, chocolate mousse, and fluffernutter ice cream

Boston Creme Pie

 

Everything is made in-house – from the bread to the ice cream.

Here is the classic Butterfish
