>V-Day Early

>So last night I took the hubby out for a Super Secret Date Night to celebrate Valentine’s Day early.

We got in the car and drove and drove without him knowing where we were going, until we ended up at the Culinary Institute of America.

This marks our 4th trip there and our 4th restaurant at the school we have eaten at. Now it’s time to start over!

We ate at the St. Andrew’s Cafe which serves contemporary fare, with those of you unfamiliar with the CIA this is one of the TOP schools for Culinary Mastery. The restaurants and the kitchens are all run and staffed by the students working to get their degree.

We had very attentive (a few of them cute, and a few of them light in the loafers) Waiters. And I must say this meal ranks right up there with the meal we had at the Escoffier Restaurant which is french cuisine.

So wasting no more time here is what the Hubby and I Had.
