Simply Divine…

Originally, I had said that I was only going to celebrate our one month wedding anniversary, possibly the six month, and of course the 1 year mark. Then we went to dinner at Vic & Anthony’s.

Mike took me to Vic & Anthony’s to celebrate our engagement the weekend after we got engaged. (We went to Josephine’s the night we got engaged, another one of our favorite places.) That was back in January though – and while my memories of the food were accurate, I forgot just how DAMN GOOD their food is. The most fan-freakin-tabulous steaks EVER. EVER. I grew up outside of Chicago, beef capitol of the U.S. I know a good steak, and theirs are among the BEST.

So I had a filet mignon that just melted in my mouth. Like buttah, it was so divine. But to top it off, I had their Au Gratin potatoes. Oh. My. God.

You know that scene in “When Harry Met Sally” where Meg Ryan does the whole orgasm thing in the restaurant just to be a smartass? Well, I was doing that because the potatoes were absolutely out of this world. I have never had potatoes so good. I could eat them 7 days a week and never be tired. I still roll my eyes and make a slight “O” face every time I think about those potatoes.

Some skinny chick walked by our table with a scowl on her face. I know she had some serious carb envy. I wanted to grab her, sit her down, and force her to try the potatoes so she would know what she was missing. Carbs! Embrace the carbs! They are so di-vine!

So now I’m trying to convince Mike that we should never eat out during the month, saving up for the splurge on the 29th of every month FOREVER to go to Vic & Anthony’s for dinner. I almost drool just thinking about it. So excellent. *sigh* Is it the 29th yet?

ahh. it’s a Landry’s restaurant so no wonder it’s good. and DTC, the prices are very high according to Houston Citysearch. it’s listed as a $40+ per person restaurant.

For a steak house, I think the prices are pretty reasonable. Especially considering how FANTASTIC the food is. The 8 or 9 oz Filet Mignon is $26. However, the steaks don’t come with sides – you pick them “family style” and range from $5 – $9 for each side. We didn’t buy drinks or wine, so we kept the tab down somewhat. With my Coke and tax and so forth, it was probably about $80 for the two of us to eat there.

Considering it cost about $30 for two people to go to the movies these days (at least), I would rather spend $80 for an amazing meal!

for some reason, my comment didn’t go through. i wanted to say that you’re making me hungry! i’ve never been big on eating steak… so when Tom grilled some the other day, they were scrum-diddly-umptious! 🙂 i like the idea of spending the 29th of every month (at least for your first year or you could take it further) at a fancy schmancy restaurant. it sounds very romantic.

I am glad to see more folks embracing the potatoes!

You are making me look forward to my birthday dinner at a great steak place here in Dallas, with excellent potatoes, of course! Happy One Month!
