Move Over The Tavern

As mentioned in previous blogs Rob's parents treated us to a curfewless-date night and it was amazing.

Our night on the town started at 5 pm when we left our carefree girls and headed for downtown San Antonio. We checked into our hotel, changed our clothes and walked along the river to
Boudros where we had 6:30 reservations.

The hype we had both heard about the restaurant was justified, Boudros is amazing. I indulged in the Blackened Prime Ribs--with Boudreaux butter, rosemary potatoes and roasted vegetable, it was beyond delicious. Robert had the Grilled Seafood Platter--Lobster tail with herb butter, grilled red snapper topped with a crawfish fricassee, seared sea scallops, shrimp plancha, jicama coleslaw and corn pudding, it too was yummy (especially the grilled red snapper topped with a crawfish fricassee). We even splurged on the homemade guacamole--while the experience of it being made right at your table was fun, it had way too much orange in it. While Boudros doesn't have the price tag of The Tavern, it has become my new favorite restaurant, unfortunately $100 dinner only come once a year.

After dinner we stopped at River Center Mall to get Brie a Hello Kitty sticker, enjoyed dessert at one of Paloma's outside tables and then headed back to the La Casada to enjoy our nighttime view.

The next morning we slept in, well kinda, 8:30. My excitement for breakfast at The Guenther House was too much to contain, so we were quickly off to enjoy pancakes on the veranda. Our after breakfast trip to the gift shop almost set me into shock, it was a bakers dream. Thankfully (or maybe not) Rob was able to bring me back to realty and we left with nothing. Then it was back home to our family, we were already missing them.

We really had an great time, one should probably date more than once every two years. Maybe we can swing another free babysitter for our anniversary. Thanks C&K for a great night with my beloved!
