Our Valentine's Day

Don't you love waiting a month for the recap of a holiday we delay for a month? LOL
The day started beautifully with a dozen tulips! Yay!  Then it was off to dinner at 1618 West!
Me outside the restaurant. Love this outfit! Rashan liked it, too!
We started with duck confit nachos.  It would've been better if there had been more duck and/or with a smaller portion with duck on each chip or more of a layered effect.  Not bad but not great.
I know it seems ridiculous to take a picture of the complimentary bread... but this bread was GOOD!  As was the basil oil it was served with!
Rashan got NY strip Oscar with jumbo lump crab, asparagus and frites.  It was pretty good.  He enjoyed it.

I had the pan seared sea bass with risotto cake and grilled asparagus.  Very yummy.  My only qualm is that I couldn't taste the advertised jalapeno in the risotto cake.  I was also perplexed about why I had one stuffed crimini mushroom off to the side.  Doesn't it look lonely?

I had the espresso martini for dessert... YUM!! I need this regularly!
We finished with the bread pudding with creme anglaise, candied pecans and cinnamon ice cream.  WHAT???  I could eat that for dessert every night and be delighted!  Soooo good!  Man!  I thought about it for at least a week!  And finally... the happy couple! :)
