Dressed up in her Paris dress for a night on the town. LeBeef got this for her before she was born.
It was a beautiful and foggy night
I joked that we should get EF Lobster Ravioli for her birthday. It didn’t go over as a joke.
But she loved it.
I had a barrel aged cocktail. I didn’t get a picture, but it was served to much fanfare
HB and I split the Under the Sea entree. Jes.
Someone got cranky, so we went for a walk.
HB knew our waitress from High School
They didn’t have the Maderia I ordered so they brought this. Sweet, but delicious.
We got about four desserts, and EF tried them all.
Then they found the Maderia.
EF really had a great time. Lobster ravioli, four desserts, and a selfie with a senator. What a birthday.
On the day of EF’s birth, we went out to Fiola Mare. Even though EF is a very well-behaved diner, the choice in venue was really more for us. HB has done an amazing job parenting and pumping, and deserved a night out at one of the top 5 restaurants in DC. It did not disappoint. On Saturday, we had EF’s party. Taste by Katie catered, and did an absolutely amazing job. Katie worked with us to get the menu just right, and then executed it beyond my high expectations. I couldn’t recommend Taste by Katie more. The fried chicken was spicy and moist. The sweet potato biscuits were delicious. The okra and sausage tarts were the first to run out. The Sally Lunn bread parfaits went over great. EF enjoyed a little of everything, but loved the slaw and mac and cheese. Check out my yelp review of Taste by Katie. Thanks again to our incredibly generous friends. EF loves her new books and toys. Thanks again to FJ and LeBeef for hosting. Thanks to Chelsea for making the cake. Thanks to HB for planning everything!
Taste by Katie really hooked us up. The food was amazing.

OMG. Wish I had these fried chicken and sweet potato biscuits now
