Valentine's Day!

J and I celebrated Valentine's Day yesterday. We had dinner at Primi Piatti. Primi Piatti is a very cozy and romantic Northern Italian restaurant in Riverside. Northern Italian cuisine is heavy on the cream based sauces, so rather than finding Spaghetti w/Marinara on their menu, you would find Lobster Ravioli and Fettuccine Carbornara. We started with delicious and lightly fried Calamari. We then shared Homemade Gnocchi with a Gorgonzola Cream Sauce and Veal in a white wine-lemon sauce. We couldn't pass up the profiteroles and coffee for dessert. It was a decadent meal but we left feeling comfortable, not stuffed!

We headed downtown to a special Valentine's show with the Jacksonville Symphony. They hosted guest artist Tony DeSare, who performed a mix of his original music and classic American Songbook tunes. He is fantastic and quite charming. His piano and voice talent are really remarkable. Check him out below!

I hope you all had a great weekend!
