SIX MONTHS?! Can you believe it? After spending our last monthly anniversary at the gorgeous Westin St. Maarten Resort (BTW, have you entered the giveaway to win your very own FREE trip to the Westin St. Maarten?) Hubby and I spent our 1/2 year (six month) anniversary right here in town, in our nation's capital on this GORGEOUS labor day weekend.
The hubby and I had a wonderful day of breakfast, errands, relaxing and a delicious dinner at the Melting Pot DC. Now, this was our first visit to this restaurant and I have always heard great things. But I was still skeptical. You know when you hear great things, places get hyped up... so I had my expectations in check and was excited to try this new restaurant, but I'll be honest - my expectations weren't very high.
This is a rare occasion where I can honestly say, the hype is real. It was delicious. Every aspect of the meal was great and our server (Charlie) was super duper awesome. The minute we sat down, he was thorough in covering the menu, advising us how best to consume particular items and while spending quite a bit of time at the table - since they stir everything right into your fondue pot right there, his presence was not offensive. He made sure we had everything we needed, checked in frequently - but he wasn't intrusive in any way. Even the manager stopped by to check in.
So, i did take some photos to share our anniversary dinner with y'all as well as share the highlights of our meal.
This Salad was seriously the BEST Caesar salad i've ever had. From croutons, which i typically do not eat - but these croutons were crunchy but yet fluffy - is that possible? And the pine nuts... deliciously sweet and just the perfect accent to the Caesar Salad.
I picked this place for our anniversary dinner and the hubby couldn't stop saying "Honey, this was a great choice, we have to come back!" So i guess we may have a found a new favorite place to splurge at :)
