So last night was a special treat. Once a year for work, we get to go up to NOVA to have our Holiday party with consultants that are out of the Richmond area. It was a very long and busy day but was wrapped up with a delicious meal from Maggiano’s! They never let me down! 🙂
As you can see from the menu, we certainly didn’t go without. And that doesn’t even include the appetizers they walked around with before we sat down.
They served deliciously breaded shrimp with a sweet yet tangy dipping sauce and their tasty mini crab cakes. YUM! Too bad I filled up on those before we even sat down. Whoops.
That’s standard procedure for Maggiano’s though, right?
Don’t be fooled, that was just my first plate of food. We had plenty to go around so everyone was going back for seconds and thirds.
And the desserts? Well, they never fail me either. Take a look at that tower of chocolate cake!
And the cheesecake? I’ve had a long standing love affair with cheesecake and Maggiano’s is spot on! Its made with ricotta instead of the typical cream cheese so its a little fluffier than a typical cheesecake. Oh, and I devoured it before I could snap a picture. Sorry y’all.
To top it all off, we had a champagne toast with some Dom Perignon! Fancy schmancy!
All in all, everyone had a great time as we shared some great food and wine. It seems we’re all suffering from a food hangover though and we all didn’t get back to the office until 11:45. Eeek! Thank God it’s Friday though and we can all sleep in tomorrow! 😉
I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!
