Surprise Datenight!

Pin It
Happy Monday! Why do the weekends always fly by too quickly! 
This past weekend was great - I celebrated my birthday with family and friends, I feel so lucky to have them in my life!

Here's a fun restaurant recap for your Monday:

The BF took me out for a surprise date night the other weekend!  I love surprises to an extent, but I kept pestering him with questions like: what should I wear? dressy or casual?  What type of food?  Have we been before?

He was able to keep the restaurant a secret until about 2 hours before our reservation - I finally figured it out!  Agave!! I was so excited!  The BF took me here on our 3rd date :-)  We had dinner at Agave, dessert a Two Urban Licks and dancing at Johnny's!  It was the perfect date!  I was excited we were finally going back, to where it all began, haha!

We had an 8:30pm reservation on Saturday night.  We arrived a little early, thinking we could enjoy a cocktail at the bar.  But luckily our table was ready!  We were seated in the converted patio area in the back, only a few tables over from the place we sat last time!

To start I had a glass of Sauvignon Blanc ($8) and the BF had Dos Equis Amber, plus we snacked on the complimentary chips & salsa.

For dinner I had the special, sea bass with jalapeno mashed potatoes, asparagus, and a mango/watermelon/pineapple salsa - DELICIOUS!!

The BF had the Santa Fe Blue Corn Chicken Enchiladas.

The vibe at Agave is trendy and romantic.  It's located in Cabbagetown, which I consider to be a transitional/up & coming area in Atlanta. 

After dinner we headed over to Krog Bar for a cocktail.  It's an intimate wine bar with a great patio.  I had the Krog Cocktail: gin, grapefruit juice, St. Germain and rosewater ($10).  The BF had bourbon and ginger. 

Krog Bar is located outside of Kevin Rathbun's Restaurant in an industrial complex called StoneWorks.  The setting is unique but I found it to be very intimate & romantic. 

Lucky for us Kevin Rathbun is opening a new restaurant August 2012 in our neighborhood.  It will be called KR SteakBar - the concept is an Italian wine bar with tapas.  And we'll be able to walk to it - hooray!!

What is a fun date night you've been on lately?!
