Mongo’s Grill – Blogger Night

Mongo's Recipe

Last week I received an invitation to a blogger night out at Mongo’s Grill. I had heard the name of the restaurant, but didn’t know an awful lot about it.

The emphasis here is not only on fresh ingredients, but also on having a really broad selection to chose from.
I was the first to show up for the evening, so I had a couple of moments to wander around the restaurant when I arrived. The restaurant was larger than I expected, but is also wide open, and as a diner you get a feeling of having plenty of space for you and your party. The grill is the centerpiece of the restaurant and it’s the first thing that catches the eye once you enter.
