We take making
meals out of appetizers very seriously. Having them at multiple
restaurants is even better. For one thing, it forces us to walk
off some of the food between stops, for another, we get to try
several different places without destroying our credit rating.
We’ve dubbed this bopping from eatery to eatery the “Appy
The best Appy
Crawls involve three or more restaurants. The trick for the novice
is to stay relaxed and not plan too much. It’s even better if
there is something fun going on–a street fair, a music festival
or just a hectic area of town with lots of goings on. Don’t worry
about reservations–most busy restaurants will allow the ordering
of appys in the cocktail area–a splendid place to be–the people
watching abounds! Try to finish up with dessert and coffee–but
not ever in the same place you had appetizers.
At every establishment,
be sure to peruse the entree menu, wine list and dessert menu,
even though you are not partaking. An appy crawl may well turn
into a fabulous meal of the future.
