Restaurant Review: Cameron Bar & Grill

It was a rough week at work. Holiday craziness is in full effect. I am stretched thinner with an event (or two) every week, putting out fires, and additional meetings and responsibilities on top of my heavy work load. That is why it was so nice to come home after said long week to a wonderful husband who said "Baby, don't worry about cooking, let's go out and have some fun". Grabbing a cocktail with my husband is a nice treat. Neither one of us are big drinkers with me working full time and him in school and work. We may have wine with dinner, but it is totally different than going out. We were going to go to our neighborhood sports bar, because it was easy, but when we got there it was a 45 minute wait due to a college football game (we don't keep up with that mess). So we walked around the corner to The Cameron Bar & Grill. This by chance will definitely become the new go to.

The Cameron Bar & Grill located in Cameron Village has turned a new leaf since coming under new management/ownership. It has a classy adult atmosphere with plenty of wiggle room and a calming decor. While it does host several televisions over the bar, it by no means is a sports bar. The menu has "bar food" with a twist like Crab and Goat Cheese Dip, Salads, and Burgers with pimento cheese or fried green tomatoes. Sticking with our Vegan diet (with the occasional dairy when we go out), my husband ordered the spinach salad with mushrooms, goat cheese, (no) bacon, grape tomatoes, and a warm homemade balsamic vinaigrette. He was definitely impressed with the portion and flavor of the dressing. I ordered the Portobello Mushroom Wrap, flat bread topped with grilled mushrooms, roasted peppers, red onion, mixed greens, tomato, and cucumber sauce served with sweet potato fries. Whereas this may sound typical and boring, it was anything but. The meaty mushrooms were seasoned and grilled to perfection and the flat bread was warm and soft. Our meal was fresh, comforting, and along with our drinks, relaxing.

Service was great, not overly attentive-we did not have our conversation interrupted, but our glasses never stayed empty for long. After we ate at one of their high top tables, we moved to the bar to have another drink and listen to the live music that was starting up. We had a great time and will definitely be back.

Ouch, sorry for the super dark picture. My wrap and fries.
