Girls Night at Carbon Bar

Girls night! When my friends come from out of town, we’ve got to go out for dinner, drinks and good times. I wanted to try somewhere I’d never been and Carbon Bar, at Queen and Church, had been on my list for awhile! Reservations were made and off we went. 

The unusually large entrance welcomed us as we were seated. High ceilings with sleek lighting greeted us with trendy, yet comfortable décor. At the front of the dining area is a large bar with seating all around with more fabulous lighting and wood accents. This place is on point! 

They offer signature cocktails which looked to be pretty popular. The beer menu was alright; all the good stuff was in bottles, but I was happy local beer was available. My friends laughed when I was served a 600ml bottle of Beau's. 

Time for eats! I ordered the Duck Tacos($18), mostly because I cannot say no to duck. The crispy duck flanked by THE smoothest guac and pineapple salsa ever. To die for. I ate all 3 before anyone had taken their first bites! One of my gal pals ordered the Summer Striploin($35). After taking her first bite, we had to ask her if she was OK, because her eyes rolled back in her head it was so good. Needless to say, she did not share. Another lovely lady, usually incredibly chatty, was completely silenced by the Prime Beef Brisket($25). The Jalapeno Corn Bread($8) was the only dish shared; great portion size! Warm and sweet with a little kick, this was divine smothered in whipped butter. 

Even after all of that food, us ladies kept room for dessert. A few of us got the Rocky Road Sundae($12) to share. The sundae had 2 large scoops of vanilla ice cream, surrounded by toasted marshmallows, candied hazelnuts and graham crackers and drizzled with chocolate and caramel. A few ladies went for the Banoffee Pie($12). It was interesting. It's small, but very shareable as it is very sweet. The cake tastes of bourbon and is topped with the banana brulee. It's a little off balance, the brulee dominating over the bourbon filling, but if you're not in to chocolate, this is a great dessert.  

The service was great. Food out in a reasonable amount of time and super friendly. Love it when you can joke with the staff! Sometimes it was hard to find our server, but it was pretty busy! 

Food was excellent! I'm already planning my next visit! 

Cheers,
