Dinner With Friends

 This past weekend, we celebrated my BFF's hubby's 47th birthday!

What's better than awesome friends and delicious food? Not much!!

My friend reserved a private room at the restaurant (The Grill),  and had a personalized menu for her husband. The date says September 8th because that is his actual birth day.

Is that cool or what? Oh, and excuse the pictures, the room was a little dim, and I had to use my flash. Anyway, everyone got to choose what they wanted for their first course, entree, and dessert!!

But first, for appetizers, she ordered this amazing artichoke dip!!! I think this is the best we ever had!

But, I don't know if it was better than my Ahi Tuna Tartare! This was amazing!

With your main course comes grilled veggies and mashed potatoes. I forgot to take a picture of the mashed potatoes. I think we were all getting excited to eat!
