Eating and exploring our way through the world

Brixx in Dilworth

Posted by Amanda @ The Hungry Wanderers on August 12, 2009

On Monday night, my cousins stayed with us on their way to Auburn from DC.  While trying to determine where to go for dinner, the Husband and I went back and forth about whether to go to a new restaurant or one of our favs.  We end up choosing a fav but a new location for the two of us: Brixx in Dilworth.

When we arrived it was pretty busy so we decided to sit outside even though it was in the 90s.  To cool us off, we all decided to get a beer.  The Husband and I love all of the options that Brixx offers (and each location has a slightly different selection).

The four of us were pretty hungry, and while many of us contemplated getting the Brixx Salad, we decided to get the Wood Fired Pita Chips and Three Dips.

So good!  (There were way more pitas, but I was too hungry to remember to snap a photo!)  While the menu calls them chips, they’re really super warm and tasty pita triangles.  There was a consensus that the roasted red pepper hummus was the best.

As for our entrees, I debated for a long time about what to order.  Half the table considered pasta while the other half was thinking pizza.

Then the waitress reminded me that you can do a half and half pizza! That helped cut down the options just a bit.  I ended up ordering half Americo (mushrooms and pepperoni) and half Chicken Florentine on a wheat crust..  It was enjoyable, however, I’d prefer small pepperoni slices.  So excited to now remember the half and half option!

The Husband decided to mix it up a bit and went with pasta.  He had the Shrimp Carbonara (sautéed shrimp, bacon, red onions, and sun-dried tomatoes tossed with alfredo sauce and penne pasta).  He thought the shrimp were excellent!

He’s looking forward to pizza next time we visit though.  Perhaps I’ll mix it up and get pasta myself 🙂

We had planned on getting frozen yogurt afterward at a new place in the NODA area: Tasty Yo.  One of the creators of this place is a former student of my cousin’s and she was really excited to check it out.  Unfortunately we arrived 45 minutes after it closed 😦  We promised that we would check it out soon and let her (and you!) know what we think.  I’m quite excited as we don’t have many frozen yogurt places in the Queen City and driving around NODA for the first time showed us how cute and cool it is.  Can’t wait to check it out soon!
