Wow. You wanna talk about a real food experience. Like heaven in my mouth. Tonight I ate Foie Gras for the first time. The stuff isn't cheap, but oh, it was worth it. I ordered the Frites with seared Foie Gras, which is a french delicacy of duck or goose liver, and took one bite not knowing what to expect. It melted in my mouth like butter. I said to my husband across from me, who also was having a moment of sorts with his bite, you've never lived until you've tasted this. We high fived, took a sip of our drinks and sighed. We were having Saturday date night at Quinn's on Capital Hill. It was our first experience and definitely a positive one. I started with a glass of red wine, a Sangiovese, and my husband had an Old Fashioned. Then the appetizer of all appetizers, Spicy Bacon Caramel Corn. So good and what a way to start off a dinner. I've never had bacon caramel corn before. It was spicy, bacony and super sticky and sweet. Then I had the Grilled Zucchini and the Frites with Foie Gras. My husband ate the Crispy Skin Half Chicken. To finish off our meal, we shared a tiny scoop of the Lemon Cheesecake Ice Cream. It was super light and refreshing. We had such a fun time and a real foodie experience to boot. Quinn's is a Gastopub. So like a pub but fancier with nicer dishes. Hey, we can't be in London for the Olympics so why not have date night at a fancy pub in Capital Hill. My husband had such a nice dinner, he said he wouldn't have wanted to be anywhere else, and you can't beat that.
