One of Norm's favorite restaurants is Abattoir, however, he had never been there for dinner. I know, it's weird, just go with it. So for his birthday this year, we celebrated the Sunday prior with Eric and Kerrie and on Birthday Day, we were going to play it low key. I told him we had dinner reservations at 8pm, but didn't tell him where. So to carry on the surprise factor, I blind folded him on the way to the restaurant. Because the restaurant is pretty much all by itself in a certain part of town, so he would've figured out where we were headed right away.
I just absolutely adore this picture. He is like a little kid in a toy store! He was reading over the menu again and again - couldn't figure it out! Everything looked amazing.
So we started with spicy hotdogs - and chicken liver toast with onion jelly, but the picture didn't come out -

Then Chef sent this hamachi with grapefruit slices out... another amazingness.

Check out that face, if he were a cartoon, his mouth would be watering.
"Get on my fork, I am going to eat you"
Then we had our entrees
|Duck meatballs with apples|
|Wagyu beef with pears and grapes|
