Friday night, my friend E.K. invited Boom and I out, along with four other couples, to celebrate Tan’s (her boyfriend) birthday – at a surprise dinner at Bedford, a new restaurant in the Heights. She is an interior designer and worked on part of the restaurant – it was a beautiful space!
We got to sit at Table 1 – the chef’s table! The chef’s table wasn’t supposed to be open for another 2 weeks, but Chef was nice enough to accommodate E.K. and it was a really great experience. We had 7 courses – and he wasn’t even put out by my pescetarianism.
Here’s EK and Tan – cute couple! (Side note – they are headed to Hawaii for Thanksgiving! For a week – from Wed to Wed – what fun!)
Here’s the view from Table 1 – Chef busy preparing the food! He seemed very interesting and talked about his food – it was cool! I just wish we could hear him better, but oh well. And this was such a perfect gift for Tan as he really enjoys cooking!
Oh Boom – such a cutie! And check out his new blazer – not too shabby! He was in dire need of a new one, so glad he got it.
Boom enjoying some of the food! I thought I wasn’t going to be full, but after 7 courses, I was quite full!
Here’s some of the delicious tastes that we had – everything was very tasty! Most of the tasting were not even on the menu – so special!!! I wish I had taken a photo of dessert – it was quite yummy – some sort of a berry concoction, but literally it was in my belly before I realized it! Boom even gave me some of his, nice boy.
This is the whole gang that celebrated Tan’s birthday.
With Chef Gatsby – Tan was tickled the entire night! EK did a great job with the whole night – and Tan really, really loved it!
It was a great experience – that was the first time I had ever sat at the Chef’s table! I felt so fancy and special! And a little drunk – each courses had it’s own wine / sparkling wine / sake pairing. I am not so much a fan of sake, so Boom got a double dose of sake (blah).
Fun times in H-town! It is starting to feel like home!
