{Martha’s Vineyard} Exploring Menemsha & The Red Cat Kitchen

Click here to see day #1 review of my Martha’s Vineyard vacation!

I’m going to skip straight to lunch since breakfast wasn’t anything special.  For lunch we had simple, but delicious, grilled chicken salads.

Mine included a spring mix, grape tomatoes, shredded cheddar cheese, grilled chicken, croutons and balsamic.  I followed it up with a cinnamon cookie.

After lunch we headed to Menemsha to walk around a bit and explore.

Back at the house Josh made us cucumber gin spritzers which were absolutely delicious!  Maybe I can get him to give me the recipe so I can post it one day 😉 .

And after the spritzers I somehow convinced myself to complete a short 12 minute workout…better than nothing!

For dinner we went to The Red Cat Kitchen in Oak Bluffs.

This was one of the best restaurants I had EVER been too and would recommend it to anyone!  The atmosphere, the food, the service…all were excellent!  We ordered various appetizers for the table and they were all delicious.  My two favorites were the Tempura Green Beans with Sweet Thai Chili Sauce and the Tuna Tartar.  (Please excuse my horrendous photos…I simply refuse to use a flash in a dark restaurant.)

As my entree I ordered the “Big Ass Scallops and Sweet Corn Risotto.”

Yum, yum and yum!  After dinner Josh, his sister Jordana, and I went out to a couple bars.  We had a blast and I ended up a bit hungover the next morning.
