Reality Check. Ok, not everything about the night was a treat. Not entirely pleasant or without stress was driving in the dark to a location on the island you’ve never been, without directions and on the “wrong side” of the road.
My parents were on our recent spring break trip, and graciously offered to take the kids for an evening so Trevor and I could have a night out together. It was his birthday, so an excellent excuse to pick a nice new (well, new to us) restaurant, put on real dress rather than a cover-up, take my hair out of its ponytail, and eat after 6:00 p.m.. I read several great reviews about this place – The Brasserie – where guests raved about the food. But the setting was a beautiful surprise. The outdoor seating was actually in the garden, where they source all of their produce. It was a quiet Monday night, and we pretty much had the place to ourselves. Everything about the evening was such a treat.
