This past Saturday my husband and I took advantage of a gift card (thanks to his boss) and we went out to dinner with some friends. We scheduled dinner for 7:30 and tried to see a movie before hand. Unfortunately the movie we wanted to see was sold out so my husband and I decided to do some shopping. It has been a while since the two of us could saunter through the stores together and not feel rushed or restricted with a kid in the stroller. J was spending the night with Nana so I'm sure he was equally happy.
If you have a weakness for a good martini, Radici is the place to be. I don't drink that often, but when in Rome, I did what the Romans were doing. I ordered the Venetician with appetizers: Kettle One Vodka, Lemoncello, squeezed fresh lime with a splash of cranberry juice. YUM. And a glass of Melbac with dinner. Dinner: Chicken Saltimbocca=Layered with proscuitto, fontina & sage. Paired with grilled polenta & house vegetable. Double YUM! I honestly licked my plate clean!
(I'm drooling thinking about how delicious that night was and felt it was necessary to document my meal from that night here.)
