T Stands For Todd Brian's Brick Street Cafe

Back when it was warm outside, my foodie friend Sally and I went to Todd Brian's.   I guess you can tell what we both had to drink.

Kathy would love this place because it has gluten free pasta and gluten free buns.

I got decadent and ordered French Dip with sweet potato fries and ranch dressing.  I ate nearly all my fries and half my sandwich.  I took the rest home and ate it the next day.  The Au jus was perfect.  It was made in house and had lots of onions in it, too.  I used nearly all you see in the bowl on the sandwich half I ate at the restaurant.  When I got the take-out box, our waitress included another container of the Au jus without me even asking.

Sally had the Cajun meatloaf with corn and mashed potatoes.   She ate every bit of it and raved about it.  I had a bite of her potatoes and they were fantastic. They had cheese, onions, a bit of bacon, and a seasoning to die for.

Since I forgot to take a photo of the restaurant, I snagged one from the internet.

By now, I'm sure most of you know the drill.  It's time to share your drink experience today.  It can be photos, a place you visited, movies, postcards, books, sketches, mixed media, drawings, paintings, tags, teabags, scrapbooking, or any other art that is digital, hybrid, or traditional, as long as it in some way relates back to a drink, any drink. Regardless, please share below and Bleubeard and I, along with the rest of the T gang will be by to visit.  Bleubeard wants to remind you that old photos are acceptable because they may be taken any time, even last year.

You are right I would love this restaurant and the food looks really delicious-you and your friend find the coolest spots to eat out. I love fries and those sweet potato frys-yum--

The meal you ordered does look delicious, I think I may be making some sweet potato fries instead of ordinary potato ones, sometime soon.
It looks like you had quite a menu to choose from as well.
There seems to be a vast number of restaurants to eat out in, close to your home. It must be hard to choose where you want to go for the meal.

Your meal doesn't look decadent to me, Elizabeth, especially since you took half the sandwich home. Restaurants that are so considerate (gluten-free options, extra au jus in your take home package) are just the best. They make you feel like a valued guest - not just a full wallet ;-)

Happy T-day! Hugs, Eileen

Those meals looks just delicious! I like the idea of Cajun meatloaf. It would taste good right now on this chilly evening. I hope this place is on your repeat list. If you don't want another French Dip looks like there's a lot to pick from. Have a happy T day. hugs-Erika

I love a something for everyone menu-and this sure does have it all! And the sweet potato fries-yum. Finally got hubby to switch out the white fries for homemade sweet potato fries (which I don't fry, but grill). Happy T day!

CJ Kennedy said...

Oh, your sandwich looks so good and I just finished my dinner. What a nice waitress to give you extra au jus to take home. That's a place I'd be happy to frequent. Excellent food and service. Happy T Day.

wow, my mouth is watering! sounds and looks like this place was a winner...so glad you had a good experience. Made me smile when you said 'back when it was warm outside.' seems like a long time ago.

Feels good to get back to joining up with the Tea Party...sorry I'm so late today. Had a Dr. appointment for a check-up this morning, and assorted errands. better late than never I guess. stay warm and take care dear friend!

Carol said...

Thanks for stopping by for a visit Elizabeth and I know too well the woes of internet service. It takes me longer to get bundled up to go out and take the photos than I'm able to stay out there and take them :) The camera gets to cold before I do usually. But I love taking moon shots ♥
Happy T Day!!!!
