We realized this week that it was the 25th anniversary of our first date.....that is a long time...and I thought it was worth celebrating. I have wanted to go to This Restaurant for so long....I checked it out on TripAdvisor (I'm like that ) and the reviews were great. I'm usually more of a nachos and margarita-type girl.but I was intrigued by their "Chef's tasting menu" where you get 6 courses based on what is local and in-season but you have no idea what it will be as it depends on what the chef has in stock that day.
Scott teased me a bit when I took pictures of each course "for my blog..." I said. "Oh, of course....he said...I should have known your blog would be on our date tonight..." he said.
