I know Valentine’s Day usually gets a bad wrap because it’s deemed a “Hallmark holiday, ” but after being with my husband for over a decade, I still enjoy exchanging mushy cards and doing something a little out of the norm. To me, Valentine’s Day is an extra day in the year that I get to remind my friends and family how much they mean to me.
Usually, the hubs and I would opt for a quiet steak and lobster dinner at home, but this year The Capital Grille in Downtown Seattle reached out and asked if I would like to come in for an early Valentine’s Day celebration on them. And who am I to pass up an amazing steak dinner, that I don’t have to prepare myself?!?!
So we threw on our Sunday best; A.K.A – black skinny jeans, button-ups and boots and headed to a seriously epic dinner at The Capital Grille in Downtown Seattle.
After a few moments, our first appetizer arrived; Prawn Cocktail – Jumbo prawns served with a spicy, house-made cocktail sauce, $19.
I could not pass up the cheesecake. Living in NYC for almost 10 years made me a die-hard cheesecake fan. When I first moved here, The Confectional in Pike Place Market was life 🙂 So when I saw The Capital Grille Cheesecake – Brûlée Style with Fresh Berries, $11, I knew dessert was meant to be.
