We're total foodies. We love cooking with quality ingredients and we love eating food prepared with love, care, and local, fresh, sustainably grown/harvested ingredients.
Early in our relationship cubes said when we have something to celebrate we should go to The French Laundry in Napa. At the time neither of us had eaten at a Michelin Star restaurant. We then started out on a mission to see what the fuss was about.
We saved the first time eating at a Michelin Star restaurant for a special occasion - celebrating our engagement with cubes' mom Robin and Norman at Range in San Francisco. The second time was unplanned - a friend started a group of foodies who would get together at a restaurant and enjoy/discuss food. The second Michelin Star restaurant we tried was with this group of foodies (@DinnerAllStars) at Aziza.
We won't know until August if we'll be celebrating our Mini-Moon at The French Laundry (trust me we'll be on the Internet at 12:00 AM when the reservations open trying to get us a table). We'll be trying for it as well as a few others (listed below).
Does food play a role in your relationship? Do you have a favorite spot?
Dining Choices for Our Mini-Moon
This post on food is conveniently timed. We're celebrating our 1-year anniversary today by dining out at Farina tonight. Bon a petit!
