When you splurge on dinner out....

Posted by   + Show Post

Where do you like to go?

It's our anniversary this coming week so we are celebrating with dinner and a movie tonight. We haven't decided where to go yet but I'm thinking of our favorite local Mexican Restaurant, Compadres. Sounds great to me!

Yep. They give you a raw steak and bring out this really hot stone (like 500 degrees or more?) and you put it on and cook it yourself to your liking. It's fun like fondue.

Do they really serve steak on a stone?

Our favorite Mexican restaurant is called Compadres, too. We also like the hibachi places and a restaurant called Steak on a Stone.

I know what you mean.. we used to say.. "what to eat today?" and think of a country -"hey! why not Vietnamese?" lol and there it was... by the way i love their chicken curry ;)

I miss living in NY. There were so many different restaurants that you could get any food that there was to eat.

we like red lobster, but we also go to new places.  Our anniversary spot is a french restaurant in brooklyn called bellaville... the food is amazing! and the ambience so romantic.  we also like to go to a place in staten island called the Marina, its on the water... wonder if it is still there with Sandy and all. :/

this sounds like fun.. lol.. unless you think of it as "why am I cooking my dinner?"  lol.. does it cost the same? I mean, you have to do it yourself so I think it should be less expensive then having it done by a cook... just saying.. lol

When we really want to splurge we go to Texas de Brazil or Fogo De Chao. It's easy to justify the money to dh because it's all you can eat meat lol. If we're going out but have a smaller budget we like Olive Garden and Outback.
