We were trying to go to Nada. On a Friday night. I know, stupid. Anyhow since Nada had a 1.5 hour wait we decided to go to Nicholson's which is just a stone's throw away. We were greeted by a doorman in a kilt. How adorable. We were seated promptly. At first glance the place is very impressive. It's cavernous and intimate at the same time.
Here's a not so great pic of their menu..while perusing the menu I had a Goose Island Matilda beer. SO tasty!
We decided on the spring rolls.($8.95). A little steep but they were good. I would advise you to get them if you like mustard. There is a lot of it going on here! Chicken, cabbage and cheese in a fried wonton. Pretty good!
My friend got the Prime Rib melt ($13.95) with the cole slaw. She said the prime rib was really great. Moist and tender and the coleslaw was really tasty.
I got the Scot Brown ($11.95). Nicholson's take on the local favorite Kentucky Hot Brown. If you're not sure that's toast points, turkey, bacon, bechemel sauce, cheddar cheese and tomato. This baby gets put in a broiler until bubbly. Not exactly health food! It was very good. It would be perfect for a winter's night.
This is how the spoons came to us for our dessert. How lovely!
We also ordered the sticky toffee pudding. That's not just regular old Cool Whip there. That's Drambuie Cream! MMM! This one is deceptively large. It I guess could be eaten alone, but I think it's better off shared.
I had always wanted to try Nicholson's and I was not disappointed. It was very good. I felt at home here. Beer lovers will really enjoy this place!
