The National Exemplar: A Local Cinci Favorite

I have had the wonderful chance of getting sick for what I believe to be the third time this year, and right before college auditions nonetheless; however, I have been trying to make the best of it and have been slowly getting better.  Luckily my parents have been a huge help!

Over the weekend they thought it would be nice to go out to dinner before we leave town, so we went to the National Exemplar, a local Mariemont and Cinci favorite.  We don't go out to eat to often, so this was a really fun experience and I thought it would be the perfect chance to share some outfit pictures and a dinner option, if any of you happen to be in Cincinnati!

This skirt is my absolute favorite piece right now.  I have repeated the outfit like three days in a row (once for work and twice for going out to run errands).  It is so whimsical and I just love wearing it because I get so many compliments!

Now, as far as the dinner goes, I really liked it.  The National Exemplar is known for their breakfast-- trust me it really is amazing-- but their dinner is equally as great and luxurious.  If anything, I would recommend getting one of their seasonal small plates, as they are about the size of a meal, but a little smaller, leaving plenty of room for dessert!

For my dinner, I tried their Duck Confit (a seasonal small plate) and it was perfect!  I loved the way it tasted and that it came with some fingerling potatoes.  I also got a side of green beans.  For dessert, a wonderful mixed berry cobbler with vanilla ice cream!

If you are ever visitng, definitely try The National Exemplar out and let me know what you think!
