LA VIE EN ROSE
The boyfriend and I celebrated our anniversary tonight with a nice dinner. I picked out several options but the decision-maker decided to go with his own pick- Garibaldi over at Purvis Street.
Their Chef, Roberto Galetti, won the World Gourmet Summit Award for Restauranteur of the Year 2009, and Garibaldi was the winner of Restaurant of the Year 2009. So I really can’t complain about the choice made, not that I was going to, especially since he kept insisting we were going to eat ”zhi char” before.
I have been instructed to mention what we tried (according to the receipt because we don’t speak Italian):
- Zuppa del Giorno
Basically, somewhere in this list is “garlic snails”, cream of asparagus soup, “veal with rissotto” and the cannelloni (which I had) was served with Wagyu beef, leeks and a cream sauce. We had some sparkling wine to go along, and for someone who doesn’t typically enjoy wine, I really liked it. We were too stuffed to even consider dessert.
Looking at it now, the snails do look kinda weird; thank god for dim lighting & poor eyesight. Picture flood.
Outfit Shots. I’m wearing a vintage black lace shift dress, purple suede Nine West pumps, bag from On Pedder, an assortment of rings & a gothic style cross bracelet. But the best accessory is really the Rose.
& check out the moon tonight. Looks awesome.
