Date Night started off with a bouquet of long stem roses
How did I get so lucky
We planned on taking the ferry to NYC which actually turned out to be nice and not sweltering hot.
OK, maybe a little sweaty but for 110 degrees it wasn’t THAT bad. The cab to the restaurant was actually 67 times worse.
We arrived 5 minutes late and the couple we were meeting were already there so we didn’t have time to sit in the bar area which I thought was very charming. Next time we’ll have to be on time!
We started out with a bread basket, some wine for the ladies and beer for the men.
I picked a piece of bread that had cranberries, it was REALLY good. I also had a bite of Adam’s which seemed to be a pretzel roll that was also good.
Appetizers for 3 of us were the mixed greens salad
It had a nice kick to it which we all agreed was some type of horseradish flavor.
For our main meal Adam and I were going to split so we could have a little taste of everything. I ordered the crab cakes while he chose the filet mignon and a lobster tail.
We also got a couple of side dishes to split at the table.
DELICIOUS MAC AND CHEESE. Yes, CAPS were necessary.
The hash browns were also delicious. The potato was perfectly cooked. Crispy on the outside, soft on the inside.
This rich meal didn’t stop there. We all ordered dessert…
I chose the cheesecake
which was absolutely amazing. You can tell everything is handmade.
Adam ordered the chocolate mousse cake
It was also really good but when it comes to chocolate cake I’m not that big of a fan. The desserts left us really full and wishing for someone to roll us out of there and into our beds.
Unfortunately we still had a trek back home… On the ferry back with our full bellies we admired how pretty the city looks at night
and remembered just how lucky we are to have a nice dinner out, with good friends, in a beautiful city. Even though it was hot, things could be a WHOLE heck of a lot worse.
Date Night success. I’m off to the Outerbanks with my family! Weeeee.
