Notes about the restaurant:
1) I chose this restaurant for our anniversary dinner because of the number of times I saw my favorite food, foie gras, listed on the menu.
2) A very very very professional staff (and they seemed very very very stressed and serious but pulled everything off superbly). It was stuffy, fancy and old-school and we loved every minute of it. Scary how at-home we feel in restaurants like this!
3) When the plates came out, I must admit, I didn't know how to eat them properly (ummm, random silverware we've only seen at restaurants in France). Each dish was serious art!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thank you, Chef Hubert Keller, for our amazing dinner!
And especially, thank you to Kevin for being the BEST FRIEND & HUSBAND IN THE WORLD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

By the way, Teddy, I didn't marry my new shirt yesterday (like I wanted to) but I LOVED wearing it out last night!
