Their visit was cut a little short because the hubby and I had dinner reservations at Nina— One of our favorite places to eat.
It's definitely an experience going there. It's pricey, but definitely worth the money. Instead of being shoved out the door within a half-hour like in chain restaurants, we ended up staying for about an hour and a half. We weren't pushed to finish up and move on. We were able to enjoy ourselves and enjoy the moment. I'm all about the moments. It was one of those nights that I won't be forgetting anytime soon. We had fondue for the first time and it was delicious! Who would think that apples with melted cheese would be good? I never thought it! It was definitely a treat that should only be enjoyed on those special occasions like Valentine's Day or Anniversaries. We both highly recommend the braised short ribs. The food at Nina is amazing. The service is amazing. The atmosphere is like out of a movie. Although I have to admit, the music was perfect when Sinatra was playing but then all of a sudden the Beastie Boys started to blast. That was quickly scratched and it went back to the bluesy music. Someone dropped the ball on that one, but it definitely got a laugh.
I love how the hubby let's me be a cheeseball. He'll look into my eyes. He'll let me steal kisses. He lets me be me. I had two glasses of wine, which for me is a lot. I think we both realized that the dessert wine that I love is not like the wine that you get in restaurants. The alcohol content is just a little bit more in those wines. I'll stick with my fruity stuff...
I love family. I love our house. I love our little date nights.
