Eleven XI Restaurant and Bar

On Saturday, I was able to attend a blogger even at Eleven XI! It was amazing. I met so many new bloggers and found an awesome new restaurant right around the corner from my house. It is literally a block away. Eleven XI invited our group of bloggers and offered us our first cocktail free along with some delicious appetizers.





Of course in order to attend a blogger event, one must get all dolled up! No complaints here :) I practically stole this dress from Marshall's for $7 on their clearance rack! It has a rip in it, but I was easily able to stitch right up. Score for me.





So back to Eleven XI. First things first, let's talk about the decor and atmosphere. The atmosphere is great and caters to many different tastes. There is an outdoor patio, an upstairs for larger parties, indoor restaurant and bar area. We were seated at the bar and enjoyed the layout and aura. The actual bar top is made out of recycled materials. Take at look at the drink pics below to see the awesome textures of the bar top!

Now let's talk about the important things: food and drinks. Yum. The first drink was on the house and I decided to try one of their signature drinks, the Eleven Cherry Limeade. Delicious and dangerous. I could barely tell there was any alcohol, hence the danger. Second up was yet another tasty drink that I can't exactly remember the name of. I went to look it up on the menu, but couldn't find their drink menu online! But trust me, it was good, and pink, and pretty.




Not only did we get to sample their drinks, we tried various appetizers that were also to die for. Let's start with my favorite, the braised pork shank {pictured above}. Y'all, I don't even like pork, but I loved these!

You know what else I don't like? Oysters. You know what else I really enjoyed at Eleven XI? Yup, you guessed it, Oysters!




Eleven XI has a raw seafood bar including oysters, but we were able to enjoy the baked oysters! I'm not a fan of raw oysters, but baked oysters covered in yumminess are right up my ally!

Eleven XI turned out to be a great restaurant with delicious food, tasty drinks and a very nice atmosphere. The best part is that it is within walking distance of my house and I definitely plan to heading back very soon!
