A week of beautiful things
I always have mixed feelings about my birthday, that little kid giddy feeling of getting the attention, hidden gifts and the inevitable grumpy, schucks I'm getting older feeling...but life is good, friends are dear and my family is amazing! Just very grateful for my birthday week and all the surprises, well wishes and beautiful things.
And then another treat. A night out at Beckta's, Ottawa's highly rated and best reviewed restaurant in town. The food was great - rich, tasty, with a great palette of flavours. And although my husband does not approve of my choice of beet salad, he was insanely pleased with his tuna starter - and who can beat spaetzle on a cold fall evening?
If you are in town and have chance to try Beckta's, do so. It's on the pricey side and the food is rich, but it's worth the visit. And if you love wine, then this place is a must and you might stretch your budget for a wine pared meal.
