Restaurant talk: Hibiscus

Reflecting on my recent Hibiscus experience, the following quote comes to mind:

“I want to have a good body, but not as much as I want dessert.” —Jason Love

Their Baked Dungeness Crab Dip appetizer is exquisite. The Lobster L’Orange is ambrosial. But their desserts are beyond divine. After indulging in a wonderful meal at Hibiscus, be sure to follow up with the pièce de résistance — dessert. Each of their desserts are large enough for a family of four. Or, you could do as I did upon dining with my extended family (mother-in-law included), and eat a Butterscotch Banana Split all by yourself followed by applause from nearby tables. Pretending that didn’t happen … we will move on.

All of the desserts are less than $10, which for their size is quite a decent value. I’d recommend sitting in the front room in a deep booth for dessert and drinks with friends after a night out. Hibiscus offers upscale New American cuisine and is located on Knox/Henderson.

    My husband and I went to Hibiscus recently with some friends and were trying to decide on which appetizer to get. As I’m usually pretty passive about our food choices since I’ll eat about anything, my friends started offering suggestions. For once, I spoke up about what I wanted to eat and insisted on the Baked Dungeness Crab Dip that Candace suggested. I am so glad I stood my ground, as the crap dip was delicious! I could’ve eaten the whole thing myself and been perfectly content without even having an entree, but since i didn’t, I ordered the Dry Jack Crusted Lemon Sole. My entree was amazing, especially accompanied by the amazing Deep Dish Mac Casserole. We had a wonderful time at Hibiscus with great food and friendly service…can’t wait to go visit again to try the desserts!
