birthday in the PM


For my birthday, the tradition has been that Andrew takes me out to a new restaurant that neither of us has tried. The restaurant choice of this year was Cafe Via Dante. My rating, 5/10. Sorry babes, not your fault! 

As an entree, I had tomatoes with mozzarella di bufala and olive oil. You can't go wrong with this dish...but they did. They sprinkled sea salt on it in which the chunks of salt were as big as my head. Take a bite out of that and try not to squint your eyes. My main dish was better. Veal piccata with a side of polenta and rapini. No complaints. I didn't like the dessert choices therefore I left without satisfying my sweet tooth. Big no-no in my books. The restaurant seats about 60 people and it was full which is great for them but bad for me seeing as they had no air conditioning!!! My hair was a frizz ball by the end of the evening. Yes, it didn't help that I was in a knit sweater but my outfit was perfect for the exterior weather and I was anticipating AC. Maybe I went on a wrong night but it's not a place I would go back to based on this experience.
Better luck next year my love :)

Cheers to another great 34 years!

What a pitty you didn't liked the place.
You look radiant, young and beautiful. The sweater is lovely and I'm sure the next year will be much better ;)

You got that sweater from ebay? It's gorgeous and amazing. I love the slouchy effect it does. And happy birthday! You don't look a day over 24.
