|Key Lime Pie - Shore Club|
Suffice it to say I was less that thrilled to find that 'the couple' had announced their nuptuals on the same day as ours, April 29th. Well ours was not this year but 'our day' nonetheless. I mean, how lame is that, Wills picks his birthday as his wedding day? Seriously, like he's not going to have a full army of staff to remind him of his wedding anniversary? So trust me when I say, we did not get up at the crack of dawn to watch the wedding. To this day, over a month later, I have not seen but clips of the wedding from the news.
I hadn't originally planned on being able to escape to celebrate since my parents were in town and we've been shackled to the house. They offered to stay home with T so we could go out. Hoorah! We started the evening out at home with a toast with a nice bottle of Champagne that D had saved from our Korean Tea Ceremony. MMMMM

D had called ahead to mention it was our anniversary so I was touched when the hostess offered us her well wishes as did our server. The dining room is on the second floor of a New York style lofty bar/resto. There was live jazz playing below in view. It was a cozy yet chic feel. We felt secluded in such a big room which is rare.
The menu is a 'surf and turf' concept. They are well known for their steaks which is what D was looking forward to. I started off with an intriguing starter of Steamed Black Bean Clams. I didn't want it to be super asiany and the server assured me it was not and I do love fresh clams. D ordered the Prawn and Scallop Ceviche. The two dishes couldn't have been more different and both wonderful.
