Next we ordered the crab cake sliders. They were served on mini brioche bread with mirco greens, fresh tomato, and a mayo sauce. We both really enjoyed these flavorful bites.Finally, we ordered the macaroni and cheese and the gnudi. The macaroni and cheese was really creamy and a nice compliment to the sliders. The cheddar truly stood out and the top was crisp with breadcrumbs and melted cheese. The gnudi ( baby gnocchi) was served in a brown butter sauce and topped with crispy thyme and bay leaves. This was my absolute favorite item of the evening. The gnudi was slightly seared so that it had a lovely texture the flavors were amazing.
I have to make a small note here about the sommelier at Cedars Social. His name is DLynn Proctor and he added so much to our evening. We were greeted with a taste of rose wine once we were seated and he let us know that he would check in on us the rest of the evening. That he did! We asked him what bottle we should order, and he mentioned that he didn't want us to both be limited to that bottle. Therefore, we each had different pairings and got a lovely history lesson on each wine that he presented to us. Thank you, DLynn!
