Casa Mono [lunch]

Surprise lunches are awesome. My team enjoyed a delicious work lunch at Casa Mono, just a few blocks from our office. I’ve been here a bunch of times and absolutely love it, so I was psyched. I’ll take the manchego salad and crispy soft shell crab, please! Fantastic as always. For dessert, a co-worker and I shared a yummy almond cake dessert with olive oil ice cream and honey poached rhubarb. The only thing that would have made this meal better was a nice glass (or bottle) of wine… ūüėČ ¬†Oh well, back to work. Thanks for the nice treat, boss!
