For our Anniversary we ate at Matthew's Restaurant. When we were looking for a restaurant, we wanted something intimate but also affordable. The restaurant is beyond gorgeous. Reminds me of a set right out of Mad Men! Pictured above is the bar and the main dining room is right next to it. It's quite similar in decor and only had a few tables. We liked the intimacy and I think it also gave the waiters the opportunity to be more attentive.
If you are planning to visit Jacksonville, I recommend that you reserve your table a week ahead!
For appetizers and cocktail, I choose the Pear Martini and local shrimp. I didn't take a picture of Ryan's drink, as he usually orders scotch or whisky. He had the Macallen Scotch 12 year. I am a martini girl and I absolutely loved this one! It's very sweet and almost reminded me of the taste of white wine.
My dinner is on the bottom left. I had the Gnocchi and Ryan had the Fusilli (venison with pasta).
For dessert we requested the Black Forest Chocolate Torta. We were so surprised by the little message they created with the dessert! So nice of them to remember our special night. :)
My husband was so sweet to remember that I like Dooney and Bourke handbags and Disney. I remember last year at Disney, I pointed out at the stores that I liked the bags made by them.
The design has a special meaning to us as well, because we got married in Orlando and had our first Anniversary at Disney World.
We truly got everything!!
Hope you had a fabulous Monday Evening!
