Life on the Hill Tastes Good: Marjorie

At one point in my life (all of 3 months ago) I had grand illusions of dining out every night, taking amazing photographs and writing reviews on each and every flavor. What has that tuned into? A quick cell phone pic I sometimes manage to throw on my blog. But today that all changes (sort of)! 

Will and I went to Marjorie last night, a little place I randomly found on Urbanspoon while trying to find somewhere to eat we hadn't been yet. Our overall experience was quite nice, with delicious food and friendly staff, but a word to the hungry: you many want to grab a hotdog before you go. I can't decide frankly if small portions are simply a testament to how much we should really be consuming in one sitting, or sometime just a rip off. In this case, although delicious, I would have liked to see a little more on my plate. Especially since I ordered prawns, and god knows I can eat about two dozen before I'm full. Sadly, there were only three. 

The prawns were cooked with the heads on though (tails peeled) which I have never experienced before. The result was nothing less than amazing. All the goodness usually tossed from the head softens when cooked, and adds a lovely flavor to the body meat. They were served over grits, which were more like a risotto, buttery and rich. Will had a king salmon dish which although was very delicious, and cooked perfectly, wasn't as good as mine :)

Overall, if you're feeling swanky (and in the mood to spend some money) I would recommend it. We'll definitely be back in the summer, as they have an adorable little patio.
