Lunchin' ladies

Check your iPhone calendars, It's a special day.

It's my momma's birthday.

Yup this special lady turns... a year older! But she sure doesn't look it—let's hope she passes on those genetics.

There was simply no other way we would spend the day than around our seaport home, Mystic Connecticut—there is also no other thing my mom & I do better than lunching + shopping.

When it comes to Mystic, admittedly we have eaten our way thru town multiple times but we had still yet to try out the "new" restaurant on the block—or marina—Red 36.

& holy moly had we been missing out.

For starters, the aesthetic was out of this world. The most perfect shade of navy, clean white, accents of red and touches of modern nautical from the bathrooms to the deck. 

Secondly, I had one of the best meals to ever dance over my tastebuds. We started with coconut shrimp & washed down with Italian wine. I then got to salsa over to an Ahi-tuna salad paired with grapefruit & avocado—squisito.  

My lunching lady and I only have a few more lunch dates planned stateside...before we start making plans for the other side of the pond—lunch in London?

Sounds fab-u-lous.
