Price Point: $$$$
For the longest time, this restaurant was on my list of places to try. It didn’t take much convincing for my husband to go along for the ride (he himself loves trying new places to dine). Eating here…well…it’s a little heavy on the pockets so make sure you save the money. The hubs and I were celebrating our 23rd year of togetherness and whilst it wasn’t necessarily our wedding anniversary, it is certainly a tradition we have kept up with in the last several years. It was just he and I while our kids stayed home (we made sure to have dinner ready for them) to hold down the fort.

Appetizers & Drinks
The appetizers and drinks really made an impact and presented a great start to the evening.
Oysters are a must so it's no surprise we ordered a platter. The bone marrow was friggin' amazing and probably was a fave for the both of us. The bread plate was too good as a starter...whatever was in the little biscuits, had us yearning for more. It was THAT good.
Drinks were, of course, to let loose - it was a kid-free evening, after all.
It's called "Skyfall" and included macarons, berries, and goat cheese. An interesting combo but so yummy! We received this extra treat as a gift from the restaurant to celebrate our date.
This gift had was the most unique we've seen in person. Once the (fog) effects started, we certainly became the center of attention. People were inspired to order their own - you could hear lots of "oohs" and "aahs". Pretty soon it was a fog forest (in the best way) in our area of the dining room!
At the end of the evening, we both felt that, although this place is a bit spendy, we hope to make it back in the future. Ascend Prime Steak & Sushi is very well worth it!
