Anniversary Dinner

Monday night, for our anniversary dinner, we tried to go here for dinner:
Too bad they were closed.  We probably should have called before we drove all the way there.  Good thing the Via Rapida (AKA the highway) is finished and getting back to Praia from Angra took no time at all.

We decided that if we could not eat at the whale restaurant, that Clube de Oficiais (AKA Jorges) was just as good.  I know this picture doesn't look like much, but this is the backside of the restaurant.  You park in back and walk around front.
This is why you can't park in front.
It is a semi-circular building with windows all around, perched up on a hill, over looking the ocean.
This is a nother picture from the front.
Bread, of course.
Cheese, too.
Here was my view from our table.  Almost like you are on a cruise ship.  It's really beautiful and added to our special evening.
How cute is the oil and vinegar for the salad dressing?
This is a traditional Portuguese restaurant.  Ryan ordered the steak.  He said it was really good.
I ordered the breaded hake.  I had this the last time and it was really good, so I ordered it again.  It comes with salad and boiled potatoes.
We did enjoy some wine, but I did not get any pictures of this.  We wanted dessert, but they were out of almost everything.  So, just a coffee to finish.
A great end to a great meal and a great day and a great year!

Happy Anniversary!! If there is anything goat cheese I am all over it as an appetizer. One of my favorites is baked goat cheese on top of proscuitto (I know you wouldn't eat this!) and then drizzled with arugala and glazed balsamic dressing - yum!

And there is a place in Oak Park (outside of Chicago) that brings each person their own french press when you order coffee - it even has a timer on it which lets you know when its ready to pour - love ending a great meal with a great cup of coffee!

I don't always get dessert but that is the best way to finish off a meal! Anything chocolate is always good to me!
