Yaaaaayyyy.... American Pride Day! I didn't see as many American Flag apparel as I was fearing I would see :-) J.K... I love it when my man wears his American Flag bandana like a true American!
Tonight (yes I rushed home to blog about it), Ed, my mom, my brother, his girlfriend, and I spend the night at X20 in the Y.O. OMG... please take my advice and NEVER miss a fun event that Peter Kelly is hosting! Remember the Christmas Dinner and Holiday Cabaret?
So this one was very different. The seats weren't assigned by groups... you just had to find a table and claim it with your life. It was so packed! The appetizers were passed by their waiters. However, there was no sit-down dinner. Instead, there were food stations (buffet style) for the "Salad and Pasta" and the "Meat". There was also the bar and the Sushi Bar.
Let me just start off by saying that I literally tried every item that was being passed around/served. Including the 9382409284203 desserts! Unless of course they ran out. I really tried my best to "pace" myself but there was no point because I had to try everything and there was just so much food! I was in heaven... literally.
Here it goessssssss!

Chocolate Sorbet... OK I don't think this was sorbet. It was not cold, and it was like mousse! DELISH!
Coconut Panna Cotta
Toasted Almond Truffle
Are we done yet? Haha, ok so I did miss out on the Pistachio Ice Cream and another flavor ice cream. Plus, I didn't have the Vegetable Dumplings and Shrimp Tempura because I didn't wanna waste stomach space on just plain old Japanese food! My favorites of the night were the Sliders, the pork, Lobster Canapé... I also had the Phyllo Turnover with Smoked Chicken & Goat Cheese but I don't have a picture of it. Maybe I was too excited and forgot to take one before I ate it. It was that good. OH and of course the Beef Wellingtons!
After the sorbet, I thought the night of food was coming close to an end. But it really didn't. They kept bringing me food and I accepted graciously!
And the view? Perfect. I just realized tonight that I had never been to X20 while it was still light out and it was absolutely STUNNING! Here are some pics:
