Out of the Fire- Easton, MD

After a quick and easy drive from our home in Central Jersey to the beautiful Eastern Shore of Maryland, my companion and I needed some lunch before hitting the links at River Marsh.

We drove into quaint Easton, the streets lined with shops and pubs that all were so cute. We had a lovely lunch at Out of the Fire, a cute bistro with a huge brick oven. Despite the wonderful smell coming from the oven we did not get any of their pizzas, we just were not in the mood for that. But we did have a delicious lunch.

Out of the Fire has a nice decor and attentive staff. Our waiter was quiet and very professional. I had the Out of the Fire Cobb Salad which was served over a bed of greens and had chicken confit, bacon, granny smith apples and Gorgonzola. It was incredible. The chicken was tender and juicy, had a little smoke to it. The apples added a little crisp tartness and was refreshing in contrast to the smokey bacon. The cheese gave it just a little tang. They served it with a balsamic vinaigrette it was the perfect amount, it was not swimming in dressing.

My companion chose the mussels. A giant bowl of mussels arrived at our table and the smell wafting from them was amazing. The tomato broth had garlic and capers and was really great. The mussels were also very big, we'd never seen mussels that size, my companion was quite happy. Judging form the smell and all the action coming from the open kitchen, I'd say you can't go wrong with anything on the menu.

Don't forget to hit a couple of shops too!
