We celebrated Brad’s birthday early this year and fortunately for us we chose well. Branch Water Tavern has made it to the top of a very short list of our favorite restaurants. It was hands down the best roast chicken I’ve ever had and he ordered the bacon-wrapped shrimp over cheese grits. To our surprise this also included a poached egg and wilted spinach — yum! But I think the best part was the most O-MAZING cornbread with fresno pepper jelly — we couldn’t resist bringing some home to enjoy again the next day. That cornbread was a little bit of heaven as its consistency was that of a fluffy biscuit. And paired with that jelly…. oh dear…. it was the perfect blend of warm spice and sweet jam simultaneously exploding in my mouth. Perfection! Everything else on the menu looked amazing too…including their 10+ page wine and spirits list. We will definitely have to find another excuse to celebrate to justify a quick return!
I am so grateful for so much in my life…but most especially for that tall drink of water I call a husband!
