Chew Restaurant, Jacksonville..

So our time in the JAX is nearly up and I will miss all the great restaurants here, and tonight we tried CHEW. It's been a favourite of my husband for lunch since he has been working in the city, but we've never made it out there for dinner.

So a 8.30pm dinner date it was, and as we are also out with work colleagues tomorrow night we agreed my drinking night and his tomorrow :-)

Their mantra:
At Chew Restaurant, we believe everyone deserves great food at a reasonable price, attentive service, and thoughtful surroundings. We pride ourselves on craftsmanship and attention to detail in everything we do. We use the highest quality products available – made in-house, sourced locally, or from all over the world. We work hard to make sure you get a great meal, prepared and served by people with a passion for food, in an environment designed to make you feel welcome.

Sounds good...and after having a delicious lunch there once I was really looking forward to it..

Super cute from the outside...

Nice exterior a Chew

We ordered a bottle of red and perused the menu... ooh too many delicious things to choose from, but we went for

and then we both had... (only 'cause I'd seen it on the Food Network earlier in the day!!)

Well it was all fabulous. Hubbies pork was to die for, melted in your mouth and left you wanting to lick the plate. My goats cheese was so creamy that I had to ask the kitchen the name of it to see if I could track it down for myself.
The hanger steak was a revelation. If you've never had it then only order rare or medium rare as anything more and it becomes chewy..ours rare was meaty deliciousness... and my mouth is watering at the thought of that garlic aioli!
We sheared a home made churro dipped in heavenly dark chocolate for dessert and wondered why the place wasn't busier... they are rammed at lunchtimes...

Recommended and sad we never tried it earlier... Chew was amazing!
