David had purchased this bottle of wine for Caitlin a long time ago, and it was bottled in the year of her birth. We even visited the winery it was from on our last trip to France, back in 09. I'm sure it will be wonderful.
Cyrous gave her this cute retro alarm clock, among other fun gifts.
A little something from the store with the cool blue bag,
and the iconic box. They were a pair of gold earrings in the shape of bows. I forgot to snap a shot of them.
Cyrous' mom was so sweet, and gave Caitlin these cool Swedish shoes she has been wanting for a long time. Very nice gift!
Time to head out for dinner
We decided to celebrate Caitlin's grown up birthday in a nice swanky restaurant in the city called Quince.
I felt kinda nerdy snapping too many pictures in here, so this is only a snippet of the entrance by the bar. It's a pretty spiffy place, with that very elegant feel.
Started with drinks, while we waited for our table, and also gave Caitlin a chance to open a gift from Nicole and Pierre.
Champagne of course!!!
I was so impressed that they printed Caitlin's name on top of the menu! This is the copy they gave her when we left. Nice touch!
This is the tasting menu that four of us chose.
This is the fish menu that Nicole and Cyrous chose. I was also impressed with the restaurant having gluten free options for Nicole.
Crab souffle. Check out the cute seafood plate!
This little fish image was on the bottom of the souffle.
Caitlin calls this, her Spanish soap opera picture :)
One giant ravioli, with five flavors! YUM!!
Olive pappradelle with guinea hen
The guys had the cheese course.
Us girls opted out, and Nicole is showing how we all felt about that course :)
If you love cheese, they had a great selection,
Served very nicely with breads, and fruit.
We surprised Caitlin with a whole cake, that was made there! I love cake a lot, and was worried that it wouldn't live up to my expectations, but the desserts that were on offer for the evening, didn't seem celebratory enough for me, so we decided to have them make a cake for her. Wow, is all I can say!!! It was so, so good!!
They even served it up so pretty, with a little bit of vanilla ice cream. Sweet end to a lovely night out. I highly recommend this restaurant for any occasion, but if you want to feel pampered for a milestone birthday, then go here!
Happy birthday Sweetheart!
