Happy 30th! To celebrate my homegirl’s birthday she choose to dine at Sons of Essex. Fantastic cocktail menu and wide variety of southern flair foods. We ordered a little of everything. Deviled eggs, wings, mac and cheese and calamari to start. All were great. Mains, rib eye, lamb chops (lollipop style), fried chicken and braised short ribs. The gremelata on the rib eye was overwhelming. It was coated in it. May have been better on the side or as more of a dipping sauce. (See pic below) The fried chicken was great with the hot sauce, it was hot, crispy could have used more seasoning. The lamb chops were perfect as well as the short rib. The biscuits were okay, cornbread was good. The brussel sprouts were delicious. Roasted corn was okay. For dessert we had Nutella panini, cheese cake and chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream. The panini bread was a little to crispy for me. The cake was delicious and adding ice cream to the panini was much better. They did a wonderful job of making the birthday girl feel special, name on chalkboard and a sparkler. The cocktails and appetizers definitely worth the trip back.
