Anniversary dining

To celebrate our 21st Wedding Anniversary, I considered offering to barbecue up some wieners, open a can of beans, and put on some country music …

… We’re not the jet set
We’re the old Chevro-let set
Our steak and martinis
Is draft beer with weenies
Our Bach and Tchaikovsky
Is Haggard and Husky
No, we’re not the jet set
We’re the old Chevro-let set
But ain’t we got love …

However Janet’s tastes are more refined than mine, so I thought better of it. This evening we’ll be trying out Chandeliers, Prince Albert’s newest restaurant.

    Is that today? Happy Anniversary!

    Let us know how the restaurant was. I’m curious to know.

    Yeah, I ‘m curious to know too – since we decided to try them out for Mother’s Day. If it is really scary warn us. Please.

    It was a lovely evening. The space has been completely renovated, and it’s been done up with class. The food, ambience, and service were all excellent. If you want large helpings at a budget price then don’t go, but if you’re looking for that occasional “fine dining” experience, I recommend it.

    Janet’s only very tiny criticism is that the creme brullee (sp?) had a chocolaty layer … somehow the flavours didn’t work for her.

    Kudos to entrepreneur Mr. Bocian for believing and investing in the downtown.

    Hmm, it was very nice. The atmosphere is relaxing and warm, even though at first the air temperature was really cold … I think they were being a bit premature with the air conditioning, although they DID turn up the heat after a while.
    The food is good. The bruschetta has a great sweet and zesty flavour due to the red onion, although my preference is to have it served on soft bread rather than thinly-sliced toasted baguette.
    And Phil has already given my opinion on dessert … I really don’t think creme brulee should be mixing its flavours (and our waitress even told me that perhaps I should come in when the chef is making the raspberry and vanilla one …)
    All in all though, a great addition to our downtown.

    Ah, good to know, I was wondering.

    And the price? Was it more in the Amy’s range or the Boston Pizza range?

    See, I said that Janet’s tastes are more refined than mine. I think that Janet’s home-made bruschetta on her soft home-made focaccia bread is great, and I think that Chandeliers’ bruschetta on their thinly sliced and toasted focaccia is also great. But I also like baked brown beans on Wonder Bread.

    Randall – The price is more in the Amy’s range.

    Do you know who the chef is? They were looking not so very long ago and I wondered if they’d open on time.

    Sounds like a nice evening, but I thought the barbeque sounded good too.
    I wouldn’t have liked the chocolate either. It’s a delicate dessert, so keep it that way.
