A Valentines Day Recap: Because Dustin had to work till 7 on Friday we decided to move our fancy dinner to Saturday and instead got our matching tattoos the actual night of Valentines Day. We went to Southern Star on Ponce and got puzzle pieces tattooed on our right ankles, his is a little bigger than mine – pic to follow when they are healed. We kept that night low key and then had reservations on Saturday at Two Urban Licks off the Beltline. I had never been to this restaurant but had heard a million and one great things about the menu.
My handsome date:
I had really only seen the location from the Beltline while riding my bike so I didn’t know what to expect as far as environment and size of the place so I was very surprised at how big and open it was! The decor was also on point with oversized pendant lighting and a color scheme that just so happened to go with the holiday.
I wore a BB Dakota jacket, H&M shirt, LOFT skirt, Nine West boots, Kate Spade bag and ByPhilippe neckace.
While we were standing outside snapping photos the sky was changing colors by the minute, this was my favorite color scheme.
We started with the complimentary bread and calamari appetizer which was suggested by my boss who frequents the restaurant, both were very delicious! In my experience trying many different fried calamari dishes I’ve noticed it pairs best with a sweet and slightly spicy chili sauce. They not only had drizzled chili sauce but also added a creamy sauce which made it even better! As for the main, Dustin and I both got the scallops dish, he read “gouda grits” and was instantly sold. I love scallops but I don’t usually order it as a main because it’s usually not enough food, but since we had apps I went for it and was plenty full.
I was stuffed by the time we were asked about dessert but since it was a special occasion and all we ordered the apple tart which was topped with bourbon ice cream. It was beautiful and delicious and a great model for a silly photo!
Two Urban Licks, get it?
Thanks to Dustin for treating me to a lovely dinner and being the best friend and lover a girl could ask for, I am so thankful! Our first Valentines couldn’t have been any better!
