Happy Anniversary to us!

Sunday, January 11, 2009

This week, we celebrated our 4th anniversary! Bryce took me out to Craftsteak for dinner on Friday night, and it one of the best meals I've ever had.  Please indulge me while I record for posterity the fabulousness that was our dinner...

Some of the highlights included (and please know that this is a once-a-year meal for us - a special indulgence for us "foodies"):

Lobster Bisque (excellent - a wonderfully fragrant and creamy soup w/fresh lobster pieces throughout - after asking the waiter, I found out that it was flavored with fennel pollen [it tasted like a more-savory cinnamon or nutmeg] - wow!)

Persian Cucumber Salad (lightly dressed w/lemon and olive oil, this crisp cucumber and watercress salad brightened up our heavy meal)

Yellowfin Tuna Crudo (for sushi fans, this starter is truly not to be missed)

Beef Shortribs (braised for 18 hours, this was served inside a shiny copper pot with a little mirepoix (carrots, onions, celery) and jus on top - perfect)

Kobe Wagyu 8oz. Steak (the best steak I've tasted. period.)

and for dessert....

Cinnamon Monkey Bread w/Caramel Ice Cream (Made of a light brioche and topped w/homemade dark caramel, it didn't take a lot of persuading to get Bryce to cheat on his GF diet - and he says it was so worth it  [Don't criticize - he was perfect over Thanksgiving and Christmas!])

Yes, we went crazy, but it was just so good and a lot of fun.  Because it was our anniversary, they sat us in a great private booth which was also special... and they didn't rush us - we hung out for like 2 1/2 hours.  

Modern yet comfortable atmosphere - it was upscale w/o being pretentious.  If you're looking for an exceptional dining experience or a special night out, Craftsteak is your place.


  1. We just love your blog. Pretty girl, beautiful dress and handsome Daddy. I LIKE the beard too! Very distinguished.

    Marvelous dinner, minus the sushi of course!

    We wanted to get to the beginning of your blog where you described Caro's condition. Other than keep clicking earlier blogs, is there a way. I typed in the blog search beginning but it just took us back to the beginning of last year.

  2. I will pass on your article introduced to my other friends, because really good!
