February's Date Night

Last year Daily Deals ran a special for LaCaille's (a rally posh French restaurant)  The deal was $35 for an $80 gift certificate.  Cory & I decided to buy it because we both knew it would be the only way we would ever be able to afford eating there.  We choose to go out to dine with some friends  (Stephanie & Shawn Petterson) in Feb because it a romantic restaurant and that is the month of love. 
When we arrived we discovered it is valet parking only, luckily it only cost $3 because that was the amount of cash both Cory and I had on us between the two of us. We then got our coats checked, another restaurant first for me& were seated. When first seated they ask if you would like sparkling or bottled water, we of course were just fine with tap.  Then you get the hors-d' ouevres only menus.  We then returned those asking for the entrée menus, which made me feel a little low class.  When the bread and butter were brought out the butter was actually shaped like roses.
The entrées were all very spendy so after initial sticker shock we ordered our food. Cory ordered the duck and I the rib. We both loved our salads, mine was the wilted spinach and the crab avocado & grapefruit. As for our meals mine was good, but 1/3 of it was fat & Cory LOVED his meal. After the entrées they brought the dessert menus. Most everything sounded delicious on the menu, but it all cost $16 apiece, so instead we just took our check and all went to dessert at Baskin Robbins.
This was a fun experience, something you should try, but we probably will not be returning here again unless there is someone out there wanted to pay for us to enjoy ourselves.

That was such a fun (and expensive) night! We'll have to start going to lower class restaurants from now on--it's killing my pocketbook!
