I managed to squeeze in another new restaurant this weekend, bringing my total for the year to eight!

I've gotten into this habit of going out to eat for lunch on Fridays (what else are Fridays for, right?), and typically we like to stay downtown because we want to stay close to work. At this point, I think I've eaten at almost every restaurant downtown, but there are a few that I have yet to stuff my face at. Friday we took a walk (in the pouring rain) over to Pub 217, a place that I've had a few beers at, but never ordered any food from. I had heard lots of good things about their menu, so we decided to check it out!

Pub 217 is a great little place that's tucked over on 3rd Street SE. We had good service and a really nice waitress, even though them seemed to be pretty busy. We started by ordering their spinach-artichoke dip, which they serve with warm, cheesy bread. It was freaking awesome.

For the main course, I went with the bacon mac & cheese and French fries, because Fridays and carbs go great together, and I have no self-control.

Also, my friend ordered the sweet potato fries,which she really loved, so if you're into those, store that info in your noggin for later.

Overall, we had a great experience at Pub 217, and I'll definitely be back!
