I’m happy we decided to go to this place. Usually, what happens is this – while driving around, we begin to feel hungry. Then, we spend the next three hours in the car trying to find that perfect restaurant. During that time, we pass about 300 of them. This is the story of my life.
A few nights ago was different. We were in downtown Niantic and saw a restaurant. It looked warm and inviting, so we parked and went inside. Luckily for us, we arrived in very early evening, so there were no crowds.
Let me tell you about the Black Sheep. It’s a really nice setup. Whoever put this place together took their time and used a great mix of contemporary ideas and a bit of history. Honestly, what this restaurant looks like only is a small part of what I really liked about it. What put me over the top is the fact that they have Guinness on tap and this awesome salad with pears in it. The Guinness thing is getting more and more difficult to find. Seriously. Here’s a piece of advice for all restaurant owners out there…get Guinness on tap. It’s just one of those things.
Okay, whoever made that salad with the pears in it, please let me know who you are. You deserve a round of applause. I actually had difficulty sharing it because it tasted so good, and that’s not like me. The funny part is that I recommended this salad to a couple walking in the restaurant as we were walking out. Bravo to the chef.
I had the fish and chips, she had the salmon. Nuff said. It was great. We’ll be back. Why? Because when you watch the video below, you’ll see that the owner of this restaurant likes Guinness just as much as I do.
