Date Night

A few months ago K and I received an extremely generous gift from K's family friends - a gift certificate to Eleven Madison Park. We had been dying to use it, but wanted to wait for a special occasion to celebrate. We tried making a reservation for a night closer to my birthday, but September 9th was the only day available and we took it.

 The restaurant is absolutely breathtaking with high ceilings and yellow flower arrangements everywhere.

 The restaurant offers a four course tasting menu where you get to pick 4 of 16 dishes that change daily. The menu only gives you the main component of the dish (i.e. tuna) and the preparation depends on your likes and dislikes (genius!) I chose octopus, lobster, chicken, and chocolate. K chose tuna, lobster, lamb, and berry.

octopus - my personal favorite!

Needless to say, the food and ambiance were absolutely perfect and we had a great time! Hands down best dinner we've ever had!
