It's not often that hubby and I get to go out to eat.
If we take Sam out anywhere, it has to be somewhere with french fries.
So, a special evening out is really a treat.
Last night was a huge treat.
We went to a place called Table 2 in nearby City by the River.
Above is a photo of where we were seated.
It was a beautiful booth with huge fabric panels draped on the outside.
Cozy, romantic, and a place to be able to soak in the ambiance of the restaurant.
They had a three piece jazz ensemble playing light jazz.
The Pinot Noir was wonderful.
But the best treat was their Hot Rock Surf and Turf as an appetizer.
They heat a small square slab of smooth volcanic rock at 900 degrees over eight hours
then bring it on a tray with cubes of delicious samplings of Hawaiian fish, along
with strips of Kobe beef which you cook right there over the stone to your liking.
There were little cups of lemon, sweet and sour, and soy sauce, along with a steak sauce
to dip your morsels in before popping the exquisite bites into your mouth.
We both had a filet for our entree and it was served with a neat triangular shaped
piece of layered potatoes Au gratin along with a broccolini.
That, along with the jazz and the rich colors of the atmosphere made for a very special
evening indeed. I am still smiling and am so glad we have these times now and again.
