Much Ado About Moxie

Scallops with three cheese grits and lobster sauce. Get this.

Chef Tom Gray's Moxie Kitchen + Cocktails in the St John's Town Center is one of my new favorite places to grab a bite. I have enjoyed most everything I've tried there, some more than others.

My review of Moxie is in the Florida Times-Union this week, so I thought it would be good timing to drop a couple more photos here, since the paper has only so much space to indulge my obsession with food-porn. I wouldn't want you to miss out on some of the tastiest lunch, dinner, brunch and happy hour options that await hungry diners.

Mexican Street Corn Toasts - share this.
It took me a few months to get out to Moxie after it opened last November, but I have been making up for that lately by stopping in whenever I'm in the area. I've dubbed the little table at the end of the downstairs bar "the blogger's table" since the two large windows ensure there will be plenty of natural light for snapping pics. Also it is a little off the beaten path, so it is usually quieter than most other areas. 

Chicken and Waffles makes me want to lick the plate.
I usually have a go-to dish when I frequent a place. With Moxie, I am content to switch it up and try something new every time. Soon, though, I will need to get back around to this decadent dish of Chicken and Waffles, maple mousse and pepper jelly.  

Charcuterie selections make for a light nosh.
Behold, The Moxie Burger. 
With the selection of better burgers growing as new eateries come into the market, the double stacked Moxie Burger, with patties of beef, pork, and BACON ranks pretty high on my list. What this dish says to me is, don't wait for a special occasion to eat at a special restaurant. YOU make it special.  

Don't miss brunch - Saturday and Sunday 11 - 2:30

Desserts are an art form at Moxie - but not too precious to eat.
See you at Moxie!
