Despite it being a steakhouse, I ordered some sea scallops. They were luscious, swimming in a pool of buttery broth. Seared and perfectly seasoned, they were probably the best scallops I've ever had. The two women dining with me, one had some lamb chops that looked fantastic, and the other had these amazing Alaskan King Crab. Delicious - best crab ever. It had to have been poached in butter as it was utterly amazing. They give you a side of butter to dip it in, but it is absolutely not necessary. Oh heaven on a platter - delicious.
We also ordered sides, which are served family style, of green beans almondine, grilled tomatoes with Parmesan and spinach, and these amazing truffle 'tator tots'. Honestly, these tots were probably the best potatoes I've ever eaten (my tots were good, but not like these!) as they were creamy and earthy, full of truffle flavor on the inside and had a slight crisp outer layer. Great meal, I'd definitely return.

Tonight's event was a champagne tasting, and tomorrow is our annual holiday party. More to come on these two events - should be great fun! And I'm happy to report that I have tomorrow off from work as well!
Oh, and we ended up making our wreath this past weekend during all the festivus as well! Normally we use fir, but we decided to opt for a more simple wreath this year, all for around $5. Can you believe it? I grabbed some of the leftover ornaments we didn't use to decorate the trees with and added for a festive touch versus a bow. What do you think?
