Birthday Dinner at Misi

February 14, 2019

Hello blog friends.  I celebrated my birthday a few days after Christmas.  We decided to celebrate by having dinner at a restaurant called Misi.  I'd love to share with you our awesome dinner there.

I was so happy and surprised when my husband made and got reservations for our dinner at a local restaurant called Misi.  This restaurant is so hard to get a reservation and you need to book it at least a month in advance.

Luckily, my husband follows them on Instagram, and he was able to book the reservation with them that way.  I love that my husband used social media to get the reservation!

This restaurant celebrates food by making homemade pasta and vegetable antipasti by simple Italian cooking.

When you walk into the restaurant the kitchen is open and you can sit there and eat your dinner and watch everyone working and cooking in the kitchen.  We did not sit there as we had a large table to ourselves to eat our delicious meal.

My husband, daughter, and I decided that we would share eating three appetizers to begin our dinner.  We started off with marinated peppers with marjoram and whipped ricotta crostini, grilled baby artichokes with mint salsa verde, and sauteed peppers.

We all decided that we would also share four pasta dishes for our main meal.

Strangozzi, pork sugo, nutmeg, parmigiano

Corzetti, Italian broccoli, pine nuts, mint

Chickpea Pappardelle

Spaghetti, fennel pesto, sicilian almonds

We were so full by this point and totally enjoyed tasting all of our pasta and vegetables.  Since we were celebrating my birthday, we still had room to eat dessert.

I had a chocolate gelato and a decaf single espresso.  I was so excited to eat the ice cream that I forgot to take photos of the other flavored gelato.

This was such a nice dinner and the perfect way for me to celebrate my birthday with my family!

Before I go I want to wish you all a HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!

I hope you all have a fun time however you celebrate this day.  💗
