Our hobby

Last night Lee and I celebrated our anniversary by going to Pappas Bros. Steakhouse, which Texas Monthly had recently deemed as the best steakhouse in Texas. Lee and I are going to continue our tradition of staying the night somewhere for our anniversary, but we are not going until June when we go to the W hotel! Lee and I really enjoy going to different places to eat. I love reading D Magazine and Texas Monthly and picking out all of the new places that I want to eat at. So, last night Lee and I determined that our hobby is going out to eat. I know it is not the most healthy hobby, but it sure does taste good!

So: Pappas Bros. Steakhouse was incredible! We started with the crabcakes for an appetizer because the Texas Monthly review said they were good. They were incredible. Such wonderful flavor! Then, the review also recommended the lobster bisque soup. It had a cayenne pepper kick and was great. Lee got the wedge salad and after sneaking a bite, the blue cheese dressing had a great bite. Then, on to the steak. I got the filet, Lee got the New York strip. Sides were au gratin potatoes and creamed spinach. The steak was so tender, it melted in my mouth. And the sides complemented the steak as well. I couldn't finish it all, but I couldn't decide what I should not have ordered so that I would have more room in my stomach. Now, the reason why I wanted to come was because the moon pie dessert had been voted as one of the best new desserts in Dallas, so even though there was no more room in my stomach, we had to order it. It was delicious as well and I think I'm going to finish it for my breakfast this morning! Now, we just have to wait for August when it is Restaurant Week!
