Anniversary Surprise

This past June 7th, was Norm and I's 10th year wedding anniversary. Due to the new job and the move and the trip to Alaska [that he didn't get to go to] we did not get to spend our anniversary, let alone a chance to celebrate. That's that.

This week is Downtown Atlanta Restaurant Week. So Norm and I made a reservation a Sway which happens to be in the Hyatt Regency, which happens to be where Norm did his training prior to his hotel opening, so he has become friends with the Chefs there.

When we got to our table, we were greeted by this:

I didn't think too much about it. I figured maybe the Executive Chef had ordered us some champagne to celebrate Norm's restaurant opening... Then Norm gave me a card. The card he had been carrying around which he had said was a thank you card for the Executive Chef. I was so confused. Then he tells me "happy anniversary, Love!" then it all clicked.

Did you order this champagne?
Yes
Did you tell Chef that we were coming for our anniversary?
Yes
How long have you planned this?
None of your business

It takes a lot to surprise me - because I always manage to ruin every single surprise.

Then we proceeded with an amazing dinner and excellent service:
Mini Biscuits and Cornbread
 Butter & Tomato Jam
Creamy Smoked Blue Ridge Mountain Trout
Roasted Lamb Rack
 Grits and Figs
Blackened Tuna
Peach Chutney & Strawberry Salad
Wedge Salad

Flat Iron Steak
Onion Rings and Scalloped Potatoes
Lobster Mac and Cheese
Eating the Lobster Mac and Cheese. I think the boy was in Heaven...

Taking a break before dessert

They made us a mini wedding cake that was layered with strawberries

Cake was paired with a tasting of ALL of the High Road ice cream flavors they offer. These are the flavors click to enlarge picture and read all the flavors!:

And this is what it looked like. My favorite was the Mango Chile Lime Sorbet and Norm's was the Bourbon Burnt Sugar:

An on that note, we add another year (or ten) to this life we chose to lead together and another wonderful meal and memory shared.
