Compare and Contrast

For our anniversary we went to two places within just steps of each other:
#1 Quaint. Quiet. Menu in French.
#2 Loud. Boisterous. Menu suspended from a tent roof.

Both places had people enjoying the "beverages" of the house. Perhaps more refined (and expensive) at one place than the other.

#1

#2 In place #1 we were treated royally and in place #2 we encountered royalty:

How we are enjoying the culturally rich experience in our new neighborhood! However, all this tasting and eating is certainly going to make us rethink elastic vs. non-elastic waistbands!! That's where our true compare and contrast may come into play...

Variety IS the spice of life, right? Congrats on your anniversary!

We have a gift certificate to that French restaurant and I can't wait to go!

Sarah, might I recommend the Tarte au Champignons (roasted mushroom tart) as your entree selection with the Souffle au Chocolat (warm chocolate cake with strawberry port compote on the side)?

Bon apetit!

The Hubs and I went last year for the first time on our anniversary and have been back three times since, including our anniversary this year. It is such a wonderful and lovely place, with absolutely delicious food! The only thing I'm sad over is the fact that their leg of lamb special last spring was just that...a special, not to be served again! I still have dreams of it...
