Oh my, how quick a year goes by! This time last year, the Mo and I were celebrating our matrimonial bliss with loves ones as we drank and danced the night away.
To celebrate our anniversary, the Mo and I made dinner plans to go to Gibbet Hill Grill, a "Farm to Fork" fine dining establishment in Groton, MA. A few months ago, we received a very generous gift certificate from the Broads who also live in the area and recommended the unique dining venue.
The parking lot was completely full for a Sunday night. There was a wedding at the Barn at Gibbet Hill which sits next door.
Although the restaurant was busy for a Sunday night, the wait was a mere 15-20 minutes for a table of two. The bar area was extremely packed so we opted to sit outside and take in the nice farm scenery. Unfortunately for us, the cows were not present and they were hiding.
Once we were inside, we were sat in the middle of the restaurant where we had a view of the open kitchen.
The restaurant has a nice rustic charm with blue and white gingham clothes on the tables and high wood ceilings like as if we were in an actual barn.
Our server brought out a warm bread basket with fresh corn bread and sour dough. She took the time to explain the menu and the concept of the restaurant. She was very thorough and knowledgeable.

For starters, we shared the Seared Tuna with cabbage, peppers and picked ginger vinaigrette. The sushi grade tuna was very good and the coarse black pepper was a nice touch.
|Gibbet Hill Grill Seared Tuna $ 15.00|
|Cindy's Crab Dip $ 12.00|
|Gibbet Hill Bone In Rib Eye $ 36.00|
|Side of Mac and Cheese with Cheddar and Chives|
|Side of Onion Rings|
That was probably should have been a sign and we probably should have stopped there but the server also recommended the Duck Breast. The dish was served with beet risotto and Gibbet Hill Honey. Although I really liked the duck, I wasn't a fan of the risotto.

It was definitely an amazing anniversary dinner! Thanks to the Broads for the wonderful gift! XOXO
