Catering an Anniversary Dinner

  • 2

Hi Everyone,
My wife and I live in the city of Alexandria and our anniversary is coming up next week. We would love to go out to a nice restaurant downtown, but we have a four month old daugher who goes to sleep at around 6 PM. Are there any restaurants that will cater a meal for two? We like all different types of food and last year we went to 1789. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

  1. in this economy? on a not typically busy night? anything is possible for those who believe (and have some cash to drop).

    start by calling your local favorites and speak to a manager, and ask. if it were me and it wasn't a Friday or Saturday, I'd try my dangdest to figure something out for you. I mean in the past (on a Sunday mind you), a friend has been able to get Equinox to shut down and send the entire kitchen staff out to the house for a yearly cattle-call open-house. so for 2 frazzled new parents? make it easier on yourself and play fast and loose with the precise date.

    1. Does it have to be fancy? Central has a fried chicken take-out that is supposed to be phenomenal. Fried chicken and a nice bottle of champagne sounds like a celebration to me!
