The Adventure Starts Here: Olive Lucy's

Olive Lucy's

Two weekends ago, Chris and I decided to try Olive Lucy's in Morristown.  It's a relatively new restaurant, having opened earlier this year.  Chris kept hearing good things about it on Yelp, and even though we hadn't been, I recommended it to a friend of mine who also liked it.  When we found out they had high chairs, we decided to bring Noah and go for an early-ish dinner.  

When we got there, it was pretty empty (definitely not like the picture above).  (Don't worry though, by the time we left the place was full!)  They gave us one of those big booths and Noah had his high chair on the end... it was great to have so much room to keep all the hot plates away from Noah.  The staff was in love with Noah and kept coming by trying to make him smile and laugh.  They eventually were able to by playing peek-a-boo with him.  

I was able to fee Noah his dinner while we waited for our food to come.  We ordered the Lobster Mac & Cheese as an appetizer to share.  It was AMAZING!  There were huge chunks of lobster in there!  (Sorry the pictures aren't better... it's not easy to take food pictures in dim lighting with an iPhone).  

I ordered the Braised Short Ribs with Fingerling Potatoes and Leeks on top.  It was delicious.  The meat was so tender and just fell apart.  I was even able to give Noah some. 

Chris ordered the Spicy Pot of Mussels.  I tried one and it definitely had a little kick to it.  It was also delicious, though I think it would have been too spicy for me after having an entire bowl.  Chris disagreed and said it was perfect.  He also loved the cheese that they had sprinkled on top!

We had an amazing time.  The food was delicious, the staff was attentive, and I loved how they paid attention to Noah and didn't make us feel bad for bringing our baby with us.  We actually saw another couple with an infant carrier come in just as we were leaving.  The whole time we were there Chris and I kept saying how much we liked the decor and would love a wood table like this in our future house.  I would definitely recommend this restaurant and can't wait to go again!
