When’s the last time you had a banana split?
If you’re like me, you haven’t even thought about this retro dessert since you were a kid.
That changed recently, though, when I popped into downtown DC restaurant Central Michel Richard for lunch one day.
I’ve been trying to liven up the work week with a little treat here and there. It helps make the day go faster!
Anyway, this creation is a “deconstructed” banana split.
Isn’t it beautiful?
Yes, that is pineapple and pistachio sprinkled over the cream and bananas.
Okay, it looks like my whole meal consisted of dessert, but I was actually a good girl.
I started with these little cheese puff balls (or gougeres as they are called on the menu). The little pockets of dough were warm and savory!
Then I moved on to a ham and brie cheese open faced tartine. Yes, those are pistachios again. I love it!
Okay one last shot of the banana split for you because I just know you want to see it from a different angle.
My normal lunch during the work week is a sandwich I eat between meetings. So, this was a refreshing deviation from the norm.
Okay, I want to know about you!
What’s your normal work day lunch? Do you ever treat yourself to a meal out? Would you ever go for this banana split?
Thanks for tuning in!
