I should emphasize that I have never used Easy Canvas Prints for a canvas print before. As for Signs on the Cheap, Banners on the Cheap, and Magnets on the Cheap, they sent me 100 magnets to hand out. I received  no monetary compensation for this post.

I love restaurant week.

So it’s currently Restaurant Week in the town where I go to school/ work…which basically means I have the opportunity to eat like a queen on a grad student’s budget.

This translates to awesomeness.

Today I ended up at The Frog and The Peach for lunch with an old friend. I’ve only been there once before a few years back, back when Restaurant Week coincided with the school year. It’s a really high class place with gourmet food so it was a real treat to eat lunch there!

As I waited for my friend to get to the restaurant, I enjoyed a drink at the bar. I got “El Sustantivo” or “The Bootlegger,” which is light and dark rum, orange bitters, Punt E Mes Sweet Vermouth, Coriander, and cinnamon spice all mixed together. It was a little strong, but also sweet. I’m a girl who likes my rum so I enjoyed it.

I like drinking rum by candlelight before lunch, don’t you?

We ended up eating in the garden room, aka patio, which, despite the torrential downpour we had today, was really nice.

This is what the Garden Room apparently looks like when it’s sunny out.

For lunch, we got to choose off the special Restaurant Week Menu. (There were two choices for each of the 3 courses.) I got:

Black Truffle Ricotta Gnocchi as an appetizer, which came with Heirloom Tomato, Capers, Parmesan, and Balsamic Brown Butter

A Grilled Hanger Steak with Cajun Ratatouille, Frites, and Mustard Veal Jus

Seasonal Fruit and Berries for dessert

All I can say is holyyyyy smokes.

I love delicious food, elegance, and pretending I’m fancier than I actually am. With restaurant week, I was able to do just that. For $19 (as opposed to the usual $50-75 per person) I was able to feast like a queen.

Do you have Restaurant Week by you? Do you like to take advantage of it?
