Sometimes the best dates are the classic dinner dates.🌃 You get to dress up, go somewhere with a romantic atmosphere, and eat good food.💃 It’s a fun, tried, and true way to spend time with someone and a great excuse to eat out at a place you don’t usually go to.
I went to Ocean Prime for Restaurant Week. If you aren’t familiar, Restaurant Week is when participating restaurants have a smaller set menu, offering a three course meal for a discounted price. For instance, I was able to enjoy a three-course meal for $35.
The Bread 🥖
I love breads! The white bread was warm and not that memorable, but I liked the pretzel bread.
The Appetizer 🍴
I had the Point Judith Calamari with Chili Sauce. The calamari were nicely crispy and paired well with the sweet and spicy sauce. I just wish the sauce had been placed on the side instead of drizzled on top, so I could have more of a choice in how much I wanted to indulge in it. The sauce was WAY TOO SPICY for me.🥵🔥 Also, because the calamari were drenched in it, some of the crispy calamari became soggy.
What can I say? I’m consistent. I ordered the 8 oz filet mignon cooked to medium with mashed potatoes. The filet was cooked to perfection and went well with the sides.
The best part of going to eat with someone is getting to share dessert! M got the Five Layer Carrot Cake with cream cheese icing and pineapple syrup while I got the sorbet. The carrot cake was way too sweet, and the texture was disappointing. The sorbet, however, was delicious! It tasted light and refreshing.
