I've been dying to have dinner at The Spring House for what seems like years now. I've sat on their iconic chairs overlooking the ocean many a time, but never actually enjoyed what I've always heard was an amazing meal in their restaurant. This trip, I finally got a chance to try it out! My grandma, aunt, mom and I made a reservation and made it into a girls' night of sorts (plus my baby cousin Finn). We unknowingly arrived on Cocktail Night, and of course, all had to try their drinks - which proved to be as delicious and exotic as their names would suggest. My personal choice was the blood orange cosmopolitan cocktail, which did not disappoint! Highlights of the meal included a delicious homemade hummus plate complete with garden-fresh veggies and warm pita, a zucchini noodle entree (the best iteration of this dish I've ever had!), and summer corn pizza. I would wholeheartedly recommend it!

The dress code is somewhere between business casual and smart casual. I decided that this was the night to bring out my favorite Lilly shift dress, but kept the outfit from being too formal with a light denim jacket, and balancing everything out with my favorite platform sandals from Vince Camuto.  The jacket turned out to be a must, as it got very chilly sitting outside on the deck. It's worth braving the cooler weather, though, as the view of the ocean is spectacular! I carried my old Kiel James Patrick canvas bag; my "island bag" as I like to call it. This fits all the essentials: my phone, wallet, sunglasses and even my digital camera.
