Our anniversary dinner
What a spectacular evening! We had reservations at Seasons 52, a new restaurant 2 blocks from our home. The atmosphere was wonderful; beautiful yet intimate, alive yet quiet enough for conversation, dim yet bright enough to see our surroundings. Cocktails…great. Appetizer…mushrooms stuffed with crab and shrimp…mmmm. Excellent pork tenderloin for her. Perfect filet mignon for me. (Note: I’ve had steaks at all the best steak houses in Dallas…III Forks, Chamberlains, Del Friscos, etc, and my steak here could go toe-to-toe with any of them.) Wine, complimentary anniversary champaign, dessert (key lime pie for S, carrot cake for K)…all top shelf.
Service…it was the sort of place where you would drop your napkin and another would instantly appear from out of nowhere.
Question: As we were being seated our hostess asked if we would prefer black napkins. (There were white ones at our place settings.) I’ve never been asked that before. Why would anyone care whether their napkin was black or white?
And the Piece de Resistance for your Mr. Car Guy: While I was waiting for the valet to bring our car up I noticed a Ferrari 458 Italia, still extremely rare in my neighborhood, parked right in front…
A wonderful evening celebrating 4 years of marriage with a wonderful lady. *huge smile*
