3 Years

I forgot to mention THE best thing about last week in the last post.  Paul and I just celebrated our 3 year anniversary on July 3rd.  Woot. 

With interviews and end of school, we celebrated a day early with dinner at Madam Sixty Ate.  I've been hearing for months and months about how creative and tasty the Madam is, but just hadn't had a chance to check it out yet.  It was superb!!  If you haven't been you absolutely must.  I've been pretty disappointed in some of the restaurants we've been to recently, and Madam made me excited about going out again. 

bad picture- It was really pretty in person

We started with fantastic cocktails, a dark and stormy and a twist on the classic martini, then ordered the meal of the day.  Everyday there is a new plate offered at a spectacular price given the quality and location, and we lucked out with a fish course.  Sole filet with pink grapefruit, delicious chunky mashed potatoes, with a complementary sweet pink foam.  Twas as pretty as twas tasty.  I suppose the restaurants we've been to recently have either slacked on quality of product or on inventiveness of the dish, but this had both, and to top it off the service was right on.  Oh and the dinner was served with a paired glass of wine which happened to be a New Zealand Pinot Noir., which was just the perfect weight and fruitiness to match the sweetness and the fishiness. 

Just a quick cab home and we were home early on a school night.  It was a perfect evening to catch up on the craziness that surrounds our urban lives, with just the right cocktail, right dish, right wine, right service, right ambiance, and Mr. Right.

Happy Anniversary, P <3
