Spring Break '12

If you are hearing grumbling, and complaining, and so forth... well, it's because Spring Break 2012 is over and we are all back to regular routines.
Ahhh, but the end of last week was so delightful!  We endured the eighty minute long ride to North Myrtle Beach for some fun in the sun.  The weather was perfect for laying out by the pool or on the beach.  (the Atlantic was still a little to cool for swimming, but the heated pools were perfect!)  With the temps in the upper 70's, low humidity, and lots of sunshine... we didn't venture to far.  Well until the stomach started rumbling...
One of the places we ventured out to was one of our favorites, and quite possibly my favorite place in all of South Carolina to eat - Croissants Bistro and Bakery.  Croissants is located at 38th Avenue N. Myrtle Beach, SC near Broadway at the Beach.  Brad Daniels is the executive chef, and he does a fantastic job with fresh produce from local farms and fresh caught fish from the docks of Murrell's Inlet, SC.
This bistro has probably a dozen or so tables in the establishment.  The ambiance of the room is very conversation oriented,.  It is a great place for a date night meal with my lovely bride of twenty-five years.  We had reservations for 7:30, but reservations are not required although helpful at Croissants. 

We began our meal with their new seasonal appetizer - Crab Napolean with avocado.  It was very tasty and an excellent choice for the warm weather.

We both chose entrees from the new summer menu.  My lovely bride chose the pan-seared grouper with fresh, crisp greens and vegetable medley.

I chose the new grilled salmon over polenta with a bourbon glaze and collards and bacon.

We enjoyed a special evening together with some special food.  Oh, and usually we partake of the amazing desserts they serve here.  Remember it is a bakery as well!  They also have killer coffee my wife enjoys.

This is our special place at the beach.  If you've never been - you should!

I am going to remember this as we are planning a trip to the East Coast later this year. Love the pic of the room - so serene. Thank you for sharing, Richard!

I've been all over the east coast but never to Myrtle beach. It's on my list but never seems to happen!
