Dinner at MK last night was one of the best meals I’ve had in the last year, if this half eaten dessert is any indication.
Ryan surprised me with the reservation and I was so excited- I’ve been wanting to go since I moved to Chicago. It absolutely did not disappoint. Gorgeous lofted ceilings, sleek art on the walls and the food was amazing. Whitefish and lobster for me, bison ribeye for Ryan, all delicious. But the shining jewel of the meal was the pommes frites with truffle cream.
I could live the rest of my life entirely off of MK’s pommes frites with truffle cream and champagne. OMG doesn’t begin to describe it.
But even better than the beautiful meal was, well, everything else. Now that we know that we’re staying in Chicago, we can finally make some plans. We can look to the holidays (Thanksgiving is in 3 weeks?!), look for apartments, dream about where our life is going to go, make some plans for how to make that happen. To everyone else at the restaurant, we were just a couple having a nice dinner. But for me, it was so much more and that was the best birthday gift ever.
