Shockingly enough I'd never been to the Café restaurant on the second floor at Nordstrom although I frequent the store's shoe department and makeup counter often enough.
A friend took my for my birthday. I'm 29 again. We did some restrained shopping, and then headed to the restaurant for lunch. I had a chicken, artichoke, roast red pepper and goat cheese salad with a vinaigrette. The roasted red peppers gave the dish a surprising sweetness. They were perfect little morsels. Sometimes roasted red peppers are just slimy and hardly worth eating. Goat cheese is my favorite food in the world followed by artichokes so I was very happy.
My friend had the Asian chicken salad which had a delicious ginger dressing.
Next time I will try the crab bisque and the pear and Gorgonzola salad or the club sandwich.
So if you ever need a break from strenuous shoe shopping at Nordstrom, head to the Café. It's a lot better than the food court inside the mall!
