The best meal of my life...

Posted 04-04-2010 at 07:33 PM by Leah Frances

Last night I was treated to the best meal of my entire life at Cafe Eve in Alexandria, VA. They don't have a Michelin Star yet, but they expect one or two in the next few years. Seven course tasting menu with wine pairings and 'gifts' send between some courses from the chef. I had to give up on the wine pairing after the third course - wow I was getting tanked.

ARRRGGG! You couldn't have thought of this six months ago when I had the wall open and I ASKED you specifically if you wanted two circuits on that wall and you said 'NO'!

ARRRGGGG!!!!!!

Hilarious closed threads.
