WHAT A FABULOUS NIGHT!!!

Good Morning All!!!
Last night I got a surprise from my DH. It was our 11 year anniversary and we were only going to do something quiet because we've been busy and he's had such an unpredictable work schedule that we actually had to postpone his B-day which is on the 7th, and our anniversary until the end of the month...lol..
He called me up around 4ish in the afternoon and told me to get ready we're going out for dinner. So I'm thinking...maybe The Keg or something like that...then he tells me no jeans...lol...I'm like huh..? Okay so it's not The KEG...lol...

On our way I recognize the route he was taking and we ended up at my all time favorite restaurant. It's called THE OLD SCOTT HOUSE.
Dinner alone is 80-100 person minimum!
It's a historical site on top of that...here is the plaque from the building
Fine dinning at it's best.
I took my DD for her 13th birthday as a treat and opened her mind to what fine dinning really meant.
Here is my disappointment though...it is no longer OLD SCOTT HOUSE, but now the Baton Rouge.
The food was still excellent and cost a little less, but not the same ambiance that I remember. A little louder...the waiters are not in black coat tailed jackets and the sections are now more open then they were before.

But!!! none of this ended up mattering because the waiter was awesome and was very helpful and educated with the food and wine which was Divine!!!! Filet Mignon and a bottle of the best red wine I have ever had. I almost teared up at the end of it all....lol...it was that good...lol...

I will definitely miss the Old Scott House the way I knew it but thanks to DH's Boss gave us a night we thoroughly enjoyed. We had such a rough year that last night more than made up for it.

(HUNNIE IF YOU READ MY POST TODAY, I LOVE YOU DEARLY! THANK YOU FOR A WONDERFUL EVENING)

I never got the opportunity to dine at the Old Scott House and I've never dined there since it became Baton Rouge. I've heard though, that it is very good.
