Out on a Date

Hubby and I went out on Saturday night - without our little one. It was the first time we got a baby-sitter to watch Logan at home. He's now old enough to have fun while we are out. I found out that his teacher is baby-sitting on the weekends and made plans the same day. What could be better? He's used to her, it would be in our house, she was bringing her son so they would play together. Date night! We ordered pizza for them and headed out. There is a restaurant a couple of blocks from our house that is pretty popular - Bazin's on Church. It's not a casual eatery and definitely not family friendly. The place is always busy any day of the week so we thought the food must be good. It was better than we thought... the food was amazing! We had a Pumpkin Ravioli with Mushroom Ragu for appetizer - it was the best ravioli I have ever had. Who would think of ravioli as an appetizer? Then I ordered a Maple-Miso Glazed Black Cod with Wasabi Mashed Potatoes, Baby Spinach, Tamari Cream - completely out of this world. Hubby ordered Grilled Filet Mignon, Fresh Mozzarella, Potato Puree, Garlic-Herb Butter, French Green Beans, Tamari Almonds with Red Wine Sauce. I can't remember having a more satisfying meal since The Inn at Little Washington a couple of years ago. The place is a little loud and busy and somewhat pricey but it was worth every penny.
