Undercurrent Restaurant - Downtown GSO 4/24/2010
We decided for our anniversary dinner we would go to Undercurrent to celebrate! We have been here several times in the past and it has always been really good! Saturday night was no different. We had reservations at 8:00 for dinner for two! We started out at the bar for a glass of champagne. Some may know that I like to have things planned out and I often decide on what I am going to eat at a restaurant before we sit down at the table! Strange I know but I guess I get it from my mother because she does the same. As I read through the entire menu, I decided I was going to have one of everything. The bartender suggested the Morel Mushroom Dusted Sea Scallops. If it has morel mushroom in it this gal is going to order it. Morel mushrooms are by far my most favorite thing! In the meantime, Mark is just shaking his head because once again I have decided on my meal before hitting the table. So we got to the table and it was Mark's turn to decide what he wanted. While he was deliberating I decided I was going to start out with the Lobster and Shrimp Spring Rolls. Mark said I must try them as these are a staple on their menu! We had the best server - Allison. We discovered that we remembered that she had been our server before at Undercurrent as well as Muse.
