Sail Away with Anchor Spa

Happy Friday everyone!

Today's post is a little different but if you are not hungry by the end then am doing this post wrong. 

I had the honored to be invited to the re-opening of  Anchor Spa in New Haven, CT home of Yale. For my dad's birthday, I decide to have him join me to try out some of the mouth-watering foods and drinks Anchor Spa has to offer.  

Walking into Anchor Spa you are  transported back to 1940 era where you can hang out with Lucille Ball and talk music with Cole Porter.  Karl Franz Williams was able to create an atmosphere that catered to the greats while maintaining a laid-back culture. My dad kept remarking on how good the music was which created a mood that you could come to this place and sit for dinner but end up taking until closing time.

Braised Bison Tacos.

Grilled  Octopus 

Scallops Special

Before going to Anchor Spa if you asked me If I had ever had Bison Taco , Octopus or Scallops my answer would have been no. But I can now say I have had all three and enjoyed it. Everything was delicious and better than the next. My favorite dish had to be the  Bison Taco all the flavor was perfect and no one thing overpowered the other.  Anchor Spa food is east-meets-west with dishes from the  "eastern hemisphere" and "western hemisphere".  Everything we had was fresh , flavorful  and delicious.

Pick a Dynasty Any Dynasty 

Beignet with White chocolate and blueberry Sauce.

Being that it was my dad's birthday I asked  if they could bring a little something with a candle so I could sing him happy birthday. They brought out heaven in the shape of donut ball. This was my favorite, I would honestly go back and just order twenty of these to go every week.  If I knew how to bake/cook, I would get down on my knees and ask them to teach me how to bake these they were SO GOOD.

For the outing, I wore a simple peplum top paired with my over the knee  ripped black jeans. 

If find yourself in New Haven make sure to stop into Anchor Spa to enjoy the food , the people, and the atmosphere.
