Anniversary Dinner

On Tuesday Steve and I celebrated our 2nd wedding anniversary. Steve made reservations over a month ago for a window seat at Le Mont, which claims to be Pittsburgh's only 5 star restaurant.

We started the night with a bottle of German Reisling. Reisling is my favorite wine. I much prefer white wines, mostly maybe because I like my drinks to be cold and I tend to like sweeter wines over dry wines.

While we drank our wine, we enjoyed the views of the city. These pictures look just like post cards.

This is the point, and shows why Pittsburgh is called the City of Bridges and Three Rivers. The Allegheny river and the Monongahela river meet at the Point to form the Ohio River.

I started with the house salad and asked for the dressing on the side. The dressing was the house Balsamic Vinaigrette.

I had the Portobello Terrine, which is portobello mushrooms with a medley of seasonal vegetables marinated and grilled with Tofu, gently layered and baked with an aged Balsamic and red pepper coulis. On the side was some roasted potatoes and steamed carrots and green beans.

My husband had the Providence Crabcakes, which is described as twin jumbo lump crab cakes breaded in crispy panko breadcrumbs, sauteed and drizzled with red onion marmalade. Steve said these were really good. I try to get him to rank the crab cakes he has had places, but he doesn't like that game much :)



We were going to pass on dessert, but they brought it to us "on the house". It was a great end to a wonderful meal.


Here we are after our dinner. You can see the Steelers stadium in the background.


Enjoy your Thursday!

You'll have to let me know if you find PB2 in the Pittsburgh area because it is no where near Charlottesville and shipping is literally as much as the actual product!!

I just came across your blog and I want to wish you a belated happy anniversary! My husband and I just celebrated our 1st anniversary on May 31st and we actually had our rehearsal dinner at LeMont, since most of our guests were from out of town and it really showed off the best parts of my hometown with that view!

Glad you're enjoying Belgium :)
