Tapas are the Bee’s Knees!

One of my absolute favorite places to eat in downtown Augusta is Bees Knees. It’s a great place to meet friends and share great conversation and amazing food! Bees Knees is a tapas restaurant and lounge. The name itself suggests it’s cool or hip existence.

Bees Knees is famous for their tapas. Tapas (by definition) are small, savory dishes perfect for sharing. And I can vouch for this. My friends and I frequent Bees Knees! We make it a rule that everyone has to order something different and we sample each others. It’s great!

Tonight my friend Jennifer and I ordered our absolute favorite, the  Pad Thai, a spicy thai rice noodle stir fry with egg, cilantro, garlic, bean sprouts, carrots, & peanuts with your choice of tofu (vegan upon request), chicken or shrimp.

Cortney ordered the Coconut Curry Panang, a spicy thai coconut curry dish over basmati rice with your choice of tofu, chicken or shrimp.

Bees Knees is different because this restaurant takes a global approach to dining. They have a variety of dishes that represent cultures all over the world: Thai, Spanish, French, Japanese, Mediterranean and more! They even offer several options for Vegans and Vegetarians.

May I suggest you try a glass of their homemade red or white sangria with fresh, seasonal fruits, it is both delicious and refreshing.

We also ordered dessert—we had the delish crème brulee and tiramisu!

Tuesday – Thursday 5 – 11 p.m.
Friday – Sunday 5 p.m. – 12 a.m.

Girls Night Out in Augusta

A friend of mine got a new job recently and we haven’t had much time to see each other. I wanted to hear all about her new gig, so we decided to have some much needed catch up time with dinner and a chick flick. And we got to go to one of my favorite downtown restaurants, Bees Knees.

Bees Knees is a great tapas place and has larger entrée size portions as well. But I love the tapas since it means I get to try a lot of different tastes in one meal, without completely overloading on food.

We went for some of my favorites with the Sesame Tuna Tartare, Shrimp & Vegetable Tempura and Avocado Chop Chop – half of an avocado covered in chopped crab meat and Japanese aioli and then baked, so good. But they had a couple of new menu items that we tried as well. The Smoked Gouda Nachos are unbelievable and the Stuffed Jalapenos were just spicy enough without being too hot.

I think my absolute favorite thing on the menu is their crème brulee and they even had a special for that – Buttered Rum Crème Brulee. We just couldn’t turn that down.

Bees Knees has great drink specials every night. Fridays are Sangria Night and Saturdays feature Skyy Martinis. They are definitely worth checking out.

I won’t even mention the movie (it was really that bad).  But the theatre has comfy chairs that are set up stadium style so I can see without looking around the person in front of me, and wasn’t freezing the way most movie theatres are.
