After work, Zach took me to Canoe, one of our favorite restaurants in the city. The food is great, but nothing compares to the beautiful setting along the Chattahoochee River.
Isn't it ridiculously gorgeous?!
It was the PERFECT day to sit riverside and enjoy a drink and pre-dinner snack. Our favorite appetizer is the salmon cakes.
After an absolutely lovely and relaxing time at Canoe, we headed back downtown to try the best new restaurant in town - Gunshow. I have been wanting to come here for awhile and was thrilled to try it out for my birthday.
Gunshow is a really unique restaurant created by the ever talented chef Kevin Gillespie.
One thing I love about this place is the variety of dishes. Each chef's cuisine was unique to them and unlike any of the others. I'll be honest and say you feel a little bad for turning away beautiful dishes, especially when you have to do it to the face of the person who made it. Ha! Nevertheless we had some seriously great food including...
Argentinian style beef empanadas with chimichuri aioli
Nom nom nom.
After a great time at Gunshow, we came home and continued celebrating with the classic birthday treat - cake! I had stopped by and picked up a slice of my favorite cake - strawberry layer, from Southern Sweets Bakery in Decatur. It did not disappoint.
All in all it was a great birthday spent with my favorite human and I am so grateful to God for another year of life! Cheers to 33!
