…where we’re going for Valentines Day. Up until this moment it was going to be a surprise, I guess it was just too good to hold in any longer. I saw a write up in Austin Monthly of Olivia a few months ago and tucked the idea of going someday back in my neatly organized brain. It’s neatly organized on most occasions, when I see messes around the house or am late for some reason chaos takes over and I spend a few moments surveying the damages. Anyway, I digress, the place looks RAD!



It’s a French/Italian fusion cluster-fabulous and I can’t wait ’til the 14th! Reading over the menu makes my mind glaze over and my eyes roll back into my head, kind of like the feeling right before you start peeing when you have to go really bad…THAT feeling!

For your food porn pleasures please read some of my favorite menu option descriptions:

pan-seared prosciutto-wrapped scallops, butternut squash & farm greens risotto, black truffle oil


corzetti “coins” pasta, brussel sprouts, toasted pecans, currants, citrus brown butter

Dear Sweet Jesus, I would like to meet the Saint who came up with citrus brown butter. Thank you.
