How Does One Date?

I've never like "dated" before. What does it mean to "date"? People are like, "You should date a bunch of people now and see what you like!" I dunno. But I went on a date last Friday. And it was a really nice date because the dude made the reservation, and the reservation that he made was at a restaurant that I had never been to but wanted to go to for a long time. So already, he has accumulated 50 delicious points in my book.

He took me to Lusardi's in Larchmont. These people also do Moscato in Scarsdale, Chat 19 in Larchmont, and Chat American Grill in Scarsdale. I've only been to Moscato but I loved it, so I was so excited for Lusardi's!

I'm an awful date. I am really indecisive so it takes me like an hour to order. Then I take out my camera to take pictures of the food... how embarassing! But my date was such a trooper and let me do whatever I pleased! He even gave me great dining advice. I said couldn't decide between a pasta dish that was on the regular menu or the fish special of the night. And he said, "Well, the pasta is always gonna be on the menu, but this is your only chance for the fish." Duh.

So here was my Red Snapper with Grilled Vegetables:

And he also got a special... the Veal Ravioli:

And of course dessert! The Fresh Berry Tart with Lemon Curd:

My fish was delish. His ravioli was almost holy. Our tart was simply a work of art.

Wow I didn't know I had such skills in poetry. Oh snap. But for real, our meal was soooooo good :-)

Just to give all y'all an update on this guy. He's quite impressive. He took me to another restaurant that I'd never been to. The Latin American Cafe (which was another winner)... It was Cuban food, and I can't say that I've ever had Cuban food. I mean I guess Latin American food has its similarities but it was just a new experience for me. I ordered Camarones al Ajillo (shrimp with garlic sauce)::in full on Spanish:: with Brown Rice and Black Beans. Plus the owner brought out fresh Fried Plaintains! What a freakin' treat!
It's just so unusual, because I'm usually the one making reservations and picking restaurants. It's nice to just kinda chill and be taken along... He's introducing me to a whole 'nother world!
