Surprise Date Night "#4"

Because of my sickness at the end of August, Surprise Date Night #3 was pushed back. September was my turn and I couldn't have been more excited to plan another date. After work on Thursday E and I headed to Gilt Bar, a restaurant by the same owner of our favorite, Au Cheval. We had a wonderful dinner enjoying Pimm's Cups and Bourbon and some great dishes too:

Farro & Almonds salad with grapes and feta
Blackened cauliflower with capers and red onion
Ricotta gnocchi with squash and pork belly
Gunthorp chicken, roasted garlic, preserved lemon jus

After dinner we headed to the historic Chicago Theater to see the one and only Willie Nelson. The theater was absolutely beautiful and Willie, simply perfect. I can't believe he can play and sing the way he always has -- I was in awe. Another successful surprise date night!
