My husband requests an at-home birthday dinner next week. Normally, I'd be happy to pull out all the stops myself, but this year his b-day falls on a workday-from-hell for me. No time for those ice sculptures... thus, I'm hoping to pick up some really tasty celebratory stuff at the end of the day--something other than Asian take-out or yet another one of those tiresome Andronico's chickens.
Since we most of the time either eat home-cooked or treat ourselves to the restaurant experience, I confess that our very occasional take-out repertoire is limited to Arinell Pizza or Gordo's burritos. So I'm really at a loss as to where to go for the next step up. Or the next few up. Well, I did figure on Masse's for something wonderful for dessert, but man does not celebrate on fat & sugar alone. Or at least mine doesn't.
All suggestions gratefully appreciated!
