Beggar's Banquet

We had a belated birthday celebration for Lynne, my die-hard foodie friend, last Sunday at one of our favorite eateries - Beggar's banquet, in East Lansing. Catching up with girlfriends and having spicy Bloody Mary was absolutely fun!

Fish Tacos Two soft tortillas stuffed with cajun dusted grilled tilapia, pico de gallo, and avocado lime aioli. Served on a bed of mixed green.

Seafood Linguine Jumbo tiger shrimp, scallop, baby spinach, pico de gallo and cream tossed with linguine and finished with Asiago cheese. (half order)

Gnocchi Potato gnocchi, sun-dried tomato, baby spinach, and mushrooms tossed in a sage brown butter cream sauce. (half order)
