Today was my dad’s birthday. Happy Birthday Pops! We went out to a French restaurant at Reston Town Center – Mon Ami Gabi. It was really good. The whole family went out for a fabulous meal. I started out with a nice big glass of white wine. They had this rolling cart of wine going around the restaurant and then they let me taste test a few different types. It was heaven!
Here is the family all dolled up for the birthday meal. My mom and dad, and brother and myself.
I started off with the soup du jour which was pretty much a cold green monster soup. I really liked it. It was yogurt, cucumber, and it had some chili pepper, which gave it some serious kick. I am not much for cold soup, but this was fabulous. Not much of a picture, but it had lots of taste and flavor.
I also got the Endive salad which had melon and blue cheese in it. The three combination of flavors were perfect. It was exactly what I wanted. A little bit of sour, sweet and salt. I loved it.
Then, obviously we had a birthday dessert! It was a Profiteroles which was ice cream filled pastry with fudge sauce. Complete with candle. Yum!
