Going out !

Decided to get us a babysitter, and head out with the wife. Nice restaurant, some champagne, starters, main couse with a nice chilled Pouilly Fuisse, and after Courvoisier XO and coffee

Wish me luck...

It's a French white Burgundy wine:

60$ ????

Restaurant visits cost me around $250 on average...

Guess that comes with the whole "culinary" Belgian lifestyle...

But it is sooooooo good !

I can't really answer that question, but I think that Americans perhaps don't refer to wines by makes/brand but more by country/region. I dunno. :

Pouilly-Fuissé is a white wine from Bourgogne/Burgundy in France. I have no idea what the restaurant price is but from what I can tell it's "normal" wine price for it in uhm shops. (of course this depends on the vintage)

But I think it's weird that they (guys in in particular) aren't more familiar with Cognac because that's like the über guy drink after a meal.

KD you had to pay for your grissini? aren't they normally complimentary like I dunno toothpics?

$60 for 2 people is your average price for going out, to say a regular steakhouse or italian place etc... Figure a plate costs about $15 to $20 a piece, plus appetizers and drinks.

Now if you really want to spend, you can pay $100 to $150 at someplace like Ruths Chris or Jeff Rubys, because they are mostly a la carte, but $250 is craaaazy!

I guess it's a Euro thing. Here in America, we just drop $10 and hit up an all you can eat Ryans Steak house

greasy fried chicken and mac and cheese baby yea! :laugh

I need to come over there and go out with you all some time. We are planning a trip to Europe next year and will most likely travel between the Netherlands and Italy. So, maybe we'll get a chance to check out some cuisine!
