Grace C. and I tried to get a table on the patio with our dogs but sadly, R&D Kitchen will not serve you if you have your canine friends with you. We opted to eat next door at Pain du Monde instead much to the chagrin of our wallets. However, I had on good authority that the carrot cake at R&D Kitchen was to-die-for so we had to try it. I was able to order it at the bar to-go. They were really busy that Saturday morning but managed to bring me a healthy slice of carrot cake but forgot any plastic utensils whatsoever. #FAIL I was able to grab some from Pain du Monde, again saving the day for us.
The verdict: their carrot cake is good. But was it $8 good? Oh heck, no. I did enjoy the whole toasted walnuts that decorated the exterior of the cake. The cake itself was moist and tasty. The frosting was light and creamy but in no way the right texture. Grace didn't like it as much as I did but then again I was enamored with the walnuts not the cake itself. I might come back to try the rest of the menu just without my dog.
