kat and I stopped by TRACE for HH before the White Linen Event.
We ran into Chef Nadine and Will from the W Hotel at White Linen Night, they urged us to come back to try the new dinner at TRACE. We will surely do that soon.
#2 son complained that he's not been to the W Hotel in a long time and requested that we return, with him.
As luck would have it, the annual Ice Cream Social fund raiser was the very next day. We bought our school supplies for the coming school year and bought extra as donation to gain entry to the event. It's sort of an exchange program, spiral bound notebooks for gourmet ice cream treats.
There was an endless parade of delicious ice cream treats in exotic flavor combinations.
Pastry Chef Angel Begaye.
Two favorites were the Peanut Butter and Pretzel (above) and the Churro (below). They were all good and we must've sampled at least ten varieties.
We left, walked around Downtown and the 2nd street area to work off that ice cream, then returned for Dinner with the kids.
He was happy to be back at TRACE and to have a new book to enjoy on the patio. We were interested in that teardrop trailer parked on their patio.
The Burnt Ends Mac N Cheese was really good. "Burnt Ends" is a brisket reference.
That Butcher Burger with jumbo lump crab was decadent.
Crispy Market Vegetables (left) and Melted Goat Cheese with Gonzales Mushrooms. (peeking in to the right).
All foods were from the Happy Hour menu offered 5-7 daily. This was an extremely reasonably priced meal in a beautiful location with great service.
