Date nights have always been one of my favorite escapes. Even before having kids, we planned date nights to just get out and enjoy each others company. Thankfully, we have family and friends who are always excited to watch our little ones which makes these dates a little easier. Don’t get me wrong we also love having date nights in, there may or may not be some food delivered for that though.
On this night we visited one of mine and my boys favorite lunch time spots–Bartaco in Hyde Park. During the day they have an amazing lunch special and the boys can’t get enough of the chips and quacamole, and can’t get enough of their corn off the cob. They have such a great patio, and it makes for a perfect spot to sit and enjoy lunch on one of the many sunny days in Florida.
Surprisingly, my husband had never been to Bartaco–he’s just heard me rave about it many times. It was pretty chilly, but sitting on the patio was a must! They had the fires going which made relaxing at the patio tables very comfortable.
During the day when I’m “mommying” I don’t typically order a drink, so when I heard it was Margarita month I was excited to try the special featured drink the Spring Riser, as well as an old favorite–The Reviver. We quickly ordered some plantains, quacamole, and salsa and got started on our dinner. For dinner, we ordered an assortment of tacos, but my favorites were definitely the portobella and lamb. With your dinner you’ve got to try the corn off the cob–trust me. You will not look at corn the same again.
When we visited, we were able to try the #bartacosecret taco the Spiced Lamb taco. For a limited time they are offering a Mediterranean taco made with lamb and topped with a tomato cucumber salad. They also had a quesadilla that I couldn’t get enough of! Next time you’re there, make sure and ask for any special items–they may surprise you!
If you are in need of a date night or some churros and chocolate sauce–head to bartaco. We will be visiting the one in Orlando next weekend, and definitely using their app to reserve a table!
