|Mesa Grill Restaurant|
Mesa Grill is a restaurant that, in my opinion, is a good middle ground for dressy attire. It's not as fancy as a Jean Georges restaurant, but it's a few steps up from a Goodburger joint. When going to eat at Mesa Grill, I would recommend dressing less casually, but prepare yourself for a lot of flavor.

We had finished about half of our meal when we decided to give up and get doggie bags. Against the better judgement of my stomach, Dash wanted to order dessert, and I concurred. He ordered churros, which to his excitement came with a candle and the words, "Happy Birthday" written in chocolate. It was a super sweet dough drowned in sugar, and dipped in chocolate and caramel. For a now-thirteen-year-old-boy, it was sheer bliss. I got a dessert that was a mix of a brownie and chocolate lava cake, with bourbon roasted marshmallows. After eating so much of the appetizers and entrees, I wasn't particularly impressed with the desserts, but I was pretty full from the meal.

After paying the check, my family and I shuffled our way out of the restaurant, completely full and satisfied. Dash chatted excitedly about his new video game magazine. As we were walking towards the train station, my dad did something very kind. We saw a homeless person on the sidewalk, and my dad handed him our unfinished meal. I smiled as my dad caught up with us and we headed home.
