Friday was a bit of a celebration for us. Depending upon your calculations it was our 6 month wedding anniversary or the 18.5 year anniversary of the day we met. During the first year we were together we celebrated ever month. During our first year of official marriage we were lucky to remember when the 6 months rolled around. To be completely honest, were it not for Paul I wouldn't have noticed.
Paul was off work on Friday night. I left the city early so we could make a night of it.
We decided to go to the new Jamie's Italian restaurant at Square One. We've wanted to go since it opened and never had but with something to celebrate we were there.
The restaurant does not take reservations from 5 - 9 so we just had to hope we'd be OK. We were. Large tales were waiting a bit but a table of two was not a bit deal.
We started off with cocktails. . . .
We weren't too hungry so we split an appetizer:
spicy meatball bruschetta. The meatballs were amazing and when they say the sauce is spicy they mean it. Happily we LOVE spicy so we were fine. All in all an amazing starter.
For our mains I ordered the mixed mushroom pizza and Paul ordered the mushroom pappardelle.
Both were delicious. The portions were HUGE. I was unable to eat all of my pizza. The finisher (Paolo) took care of that.
For dessert I had the mixed sorbet and Paul had an affogato. He raved and raved about the affogato (espresso poured over gelato) and wondered why he had never had something this good before - he has both at home and in Italy. SIGH
All in all we had a great meal. Delicious food. Good service. Great wines. A reasonable total.
We will be back.
After dinner we wandered the mall until it closed and headed home.
