Lunch at Mariposa

After weeks of hard work fixing up our house, David and I decided to reward ourselves with a fine lunch at Mariposa Restaurant at Ala Moana Center on Wednesday.  There must be a new chef, because the menu is so much better.

This is a view of Ala Moana Park:

We sat inside the restaurant, because it was cooler, but many customers preferred to dine on the outdoor balcony:

We started with a popover, strawberry butter, and a small cup of broth:

Roasted butternut squash soup with kale on top:

David ordered the lobster club sandwich with fries:

I ordered the lobster club sandwich with green salad:

Close up of the sandwich:  Bread, tomato, bacon, lettuce, avocado, and huge pieces of lobster:

This kind of food, plus a beautiful view of the park, made our day, capping weeks of hard work on our house.

    Looks great! I used to love the little cup of consomme better than my entree. The puff bread is so good too!
