Stirred. It sits right across the river from the place we went ice skating. So we got to walk. We got there right after they opened and were lucky enough that they had one table left. Mark said he was going to get a reservation, but as they are not open during the day he could not get a hold of them away from home. I've decided not to tease him and just be grateful things worked out. :) Stirred is really a wonderful little restaurant in one of the old downtown buildings. The space has exposed old bricks and old stained glass windows. It was cold due to the age of the building but they have places space heaters around to help combat the cold. The food was delicious. We had their Valentine's Day special. It included cheese fondue with bread and fruit, your choice of sushi roll, your choice of hazelnut chicken or medallion filets and than dessert. I choose eel for our sushi rolls (my favorite) and we had the medallion filets with sauted mushrooms. Everything was wonderful. The sushi was great. I would love to go back and just gorge on sushi. It really is sad my husband doesn't like it more. The filets, served with mashed potatoes and asparagus were tender and just melt in your mouth. And for dessert we had mint chocolate cheese cake which was deathly rich. It was the perfect Valentine's Day dinner. And a magnificent date. Oh how I love my husband and his surprises. They don't come often, but they are always filled with love.
