When we were dating, Peter and I used to frequent some really nice restaurants in Atlanta and that was our normal thing to do. He was great about getting a date planned, the restaurant we’d eat at, as well as jazz music or a play afterward. It was always fun to look forward to. These day, we save the fancy meals for a special occasion and Valentines is one of those. My sweet hubby booked this dinner at Cafe Iz after he saw this special night advertised in the paper. They only do special events and this one was a 5-course dinner with live jazz music and we thoroughly enjoyed it, so I took some pics to remember it by. It was a sold out event.
The lucky folks at this large table got a huge flower arrangement in the center of the table.
The menu was just wonderful. I won’t bore you with all the course descriptions, but suffice it to say…I cleaned my plate on every one.
This was the first course of corn soup and Caprese salad.
2nd course of halibut sitting on a bed of lobster orzo. Can you say yum!
3rd course was wild mushroom ravioli.
A quick and blurry pic of my sweetie.
4th course, beef tenderloin with spinach and fingerling potatoes.
And dessert was raspberry torte (notice the heart-shape) and chocolate molten cake.
And yes, it was every bit as good as it looks! Hope you had a memorable Valentines too.
