Thank you, Anne Marie

If you've been reading this blog for a while you know that 1 of our favorite places to eat is Saketumi. I've written about how the fresh, high-quality ingredients result in a consistently wonderful dining experience.

When Anne Marie came to visit it was her request to join us at Saketumi for dinner so she could echo our accolades. You can read about that great evening here.

A few days after Anne Marie returned home Spouse & I received a lovely 'Thank You' card from Anne Marie, expressing her appreciation for our hospitality during her visit. Included with the 'Thank You' card was a Visa gift card and Anne Marie's request that we use it at Saketumi with "the guys" (Steven & Thad and Joe P). She asked that we take pictures so she could see us enjoying ourselves.
So after ordering our cocktails we had a toast to Anne Marie, our hostess in absentia! Pictured above are Thad, Steven, me, Spouse, and Joe P. Next came the appetizer platter with coconut shrimp, chicken satay, crab rangoons, pork dumplings, and spring rolls. I could make a meal of these appetizers, but we had to save room for dinner. I had chicken panang curry, Spouse & Thad had the chicken hibachi, Steven had filet mignon, and Joe P had sushi rolls. Everyone was too full to order dessert but I told the guys that we had to order at least 1 to share because "Anne Marie would have wanted that". So we ordered the chocolate pyramid which is so good and chocolatey I hardly wanted to share it. We enjoyed a wonderful dinner thanks to our new, lovely friend Anne Marie.
