After doing a Randolph crawl with some friends one Tuesday afternoon, we decided to end the night on a high note at Maude's. I had only been to Maude's once to grab drinks while waiting for a table at Au Cheval, and I could not wait to get back to try their food.
I dig the atmosphere here! The mismatched light fixtures and chandeliers along with the brick walls and dim lighting just lend to a really cozy, sexy atmosphere. The upstairs lounge is even sexier, and it's always great to watch the kitchen at work, it's definitely a great date spot.
The first time around my boyfriend and I ordered whiskey smashes and we had to revisit this drink a second time around. I ended up switching to wine with dinner, and the wine list is great as well.
For our late night snack we ordered the French Onion Fondue, which was seriously good, I wanted to lick the plate. It was everything delicious about French Onion soup made to scoop up with some rustic bread. Yum. We also got the Country Terrine, which was also amazing, and the triple cream Delice cheese with strawberries, which almost made me cry with happiness- it was creamy, sharp, sweet, and seriously decadent.
We will be returning to try the full dinner menu soon, this was just a tease!
