Yesterday was the best day ever. First, I ran a 5k and J could was able to come with me and now there is actual photographic evidence of my running. After that, we ran errands and I was able to pick-up Dead Reckoning by Charlaine Harris which is the newest book in the Sookie Stackhouse series. Then we were off to a fancy shmancy celebratory dinner at Bern’s. Not sure what could beat that other than if we all had actually been raptured.
All dressed up and in heals. Not sure what I’m doing with my arms but I may need some Next Top Model posing training.
Picture I took of my feet and my sock tan line. Can you use self-tanner on your feet only?
Bern’s waiting area was packed with people. Out reservation was at 9:30 and it was surprising how many other late diners there were.
I had a Blue Point Brewing Company Toasted Lager. I had never had a toasted lager before but it was good very warm and flavorful.
J decided he wanted to try caviar and neither of us had tried it before other than it being used as a garnish.
Bern’s serves it the with traditional accompaniments of red onion, egg white, egg yolk, and sour cream. It also came with butter based foams with toast points. It was really wonderful and we would order caviar again.
All the entrees come with French Onion soup.
I ordered a salad of tomatoes with balsamic vinegar, basil, and gorgonzola. It was delicious.
J’s main course with sides. He ordered the fillet with béarnaise sauce and foie gras as an accompaniment plus a side of creamed spinach.
I had the Chicken Bert which came with a tomato reduction, vegetable risotto, and broccoli rabe. It was very moist and flavorful.
The dessert room at Bern’s is worth a trip just on it’s own. They make all of their desserts in house and you can taste the quality.
Each table is in a “wine cask” and has a radio inside it that plays different types of music.
If you eat dessert hear, you have to have a Cappuccino Bern’s Steakhouse. It is the best after dinner coffee I have ever had anywhere.
I had the Baked Alaska.
J had the Chocolate Five ways. One of the ways is a Bacon Chocolate Brownie that was amazing.
It was a wonderful end to a wonderful day.
