Dinner Club: Market at W

Once a month, Jason and I go out to dinner three other couples. Each month, one couple gets to choose the restaurant. It’s a really fun way to try new restaurants and keep up with friends. This month was Erin and Baha’s turn to pick the restaurant.

Erin knows the GM at Market, so she arranged for our group to enjoy a 5-course dinner! Though it was a bit pricier than I’m used to, we were allowed to bring our own wine, so that cut down on the cost tremendously. We were seated in a small private room.

Erin had made sure that I would be able to get something that I could eat for each course. I didn’t take many pictures because I sometimes feel like it’s a little awkward in big groups. But I can tell you about the courses!

First up was a piece of tuna sashimi in a ponzu sauce. Then we had a roasted red and golden beet salad with goat cheese. After that, we had a piece of cod and then it was time for the main course. Everyone else had lamb chops and I had ravioli with sauteed spinach, broccoli rabe and roasted cauliflower. Everything was delicious.

I did capture a picture of the dessert.

The waiter put three dishes of three desserts each on the table. They were chocolate cake, cheesecake with sorbet and banana cake. I dominated the cheesecake.

All in all, a fun dinner with good friends. I am so glad that we started doing this. Jason and my month is in March, so we’ll have to figure out a good place to go.

  1. Mmmm…I just checked out their menu, looks good!

  2. That is such a fun idea… and those eats look deeelicious! πŸ™‚

  3. Hey! 1. That cake looks amazing…

    2. I just read your comments on Janetha’s blog. I might email you to talk about the Jewish/non-Jewish marriage thing. I always like hearing from other interfaith couples who are doing it too, since everything I read online is like, “be Jewish!” but like, not every couples works like that πŸ™‚

  4. What a fun idea! We usually end up eating out with a group once a month but that’s just because my friends enjoy food as much as I do. πŸ™‚

  5. I would have dominated that cheesecake too! Yum!

  6. I love that idea! And a private room? Amazing! =)

  7. I love that idea!! If we lived in a bigger city (with more than five restaurants…three of which are chains), I would be so into that!

  8. That sounds like so much fun. I need to find some friends to do that with. It would be nice to explore different restaurants.

  9. What a great idea! Not only do you get to do some socializing, but also get to try out new places that you might not have necessarily chosen. So cool!

  10. I love going out to dinner with other couples- it truly is a fabulous way to catch up. The ravioli dish sounds very yummy. And you can’t go wrong with a special dessert.

  11. That is an awesome idea. Sometimes I get lazy about going out with certain groups of friends, so I might have to steal this. And i also feel weird taking food pics in front of people.

  12. Seems like an awesome idea, Lee! So glad that you had a good time! πŸ™‚
