I took an eight-week beginner's ballet class at Princeton Ballet School, and today was the last day. My friend from NYC came every week to take the class with me, and also helped me with my daughter while she was here. We made a friend in class, and the three of us ballet newbies happily celebrated our introduction to dance with lunch in downtown Princeton.
Our new friend suggested a few places, and we decided on Witherspoon Grill because I'd never been there. Upon seeing the lunch prices, I remembered why not! Lunch entrees started at $15, and I can only imagine what dinner is like. Good thing today was a special day.
My friends got mushroom risotto and salmon salad. I ordered the catch of the day: a pan-seared tilapia served with chopped salad. The star on my plate was the salad, with crunchy surprises from celery and radish.
We all enjoyed our meal, enjoying good company in a cozy booth. There are other options for seating, depending on your mood, which range from traditional to chic contemporary. The bar is the centerpiece of the place, and it might be a nice spot for happy hour.
