Nobody loves cupcakes more than yours truly. I love making them, I love smelling them, I love looking at them, and I especially love eating them. When I heard that there was going to be a cupcake bar opening right down the street from me, I knew I had to go immediately!
Se7en Cupcakes and Martinis concept is almost quite self explanatory by the title of their restaurant: 7 cupcakes and 7 martinis named after the 7 deadly sins.
Lust: Red velvet martini/cupcake
Gluttony: Salted caramel martini/cupcake
Sloth: Lemon martini/cupcake
Wrath: Chocolate martini/cupcake
Envy: Strawberry martini/cupcake
Pride: Birthday cake martini/cupcake
I went with a friend on a Friday night after work and was extremely surprised to see only a handful of people surrounding the bar or sitting at tables. As I know it is a new restaurant, maybe enough people don’t know it exists yet. I hope so, because as soon as people taste these cupcakes, the place will be hopping. I had both a Wrath martini and cupcake. I’m a chocolate girl by nature and if there is chocolate on the menu, I refuse to pass it up.
My friend indulged in Lust, since we’re both lacking a little love in our lives, and both cupcakes were divine. The icing delicious, but the cake a tad dry since it was so late in the day. I’m thinking they may have been sitting out for a good portion of the day. If we had come earlier, I’m sure they would have been beautifully moist (god, I hate that word but it’s the only one I could think of using!).
As more people discover this place, I’m sure there will be a line out the door to get their hands on those cupcakes and sin all night.
