We decided to celebrate at the highly recommended Chesapeake Inn. It's only a half hour from our home, but it felt like we were much further away. The restaurant is owned by the same family who owns La Casa Pasta, my favorite Italian restaurant in Delaware and the site of our rehearsal dinner back in 2005.
Chesapeake Inn is located right on the Chesapeake and Delaware Canal in quaint Chesapeake City, Maryland.
There are water views from nearly every table. The menu as some of the the Italian/Mediterranean influence of La Casa Pasta, but has more of a surf and turf spin. We enjoyed our meal.
|Calamari - I think I always order this on our anniversary!|
|Wolf Fish - fajita spiced and pan seared with a citrus-agave beurre blanc, topped with a scallion-roasted red pepper confetti|
It was a nice (early) evening. We had an early reservation, so we dined before 5:00. That worked out well for me because I go to bed at 7:00 on weekends these days.
We enjoyed our meal and the atmosphere, but I must say that I prefer the menu at La Casa Pasta. However, La Casa Pasta doesn't have the beautiful water views.
We had banana cream pie for dessert. It had a buttery shortbread crust and was filled with fresh pastry cream. The whipped cream topping was fresh. Believe it or not, it was my first time trying this dessert. I liked it all... except the white chocolate shavings. I'm not a fan of white chocolate.
Oh, and look who decided to show up...
The baby bump! At 18 weeks I'm finally leaning more toward looking pregnant than looking like I have a healthy beer belly. I still get the stink eye when I'm out shopping (I think people think I let myself go) and I'm looking forward to looking more pregnant soon. I'm also looking forward to feeling our baby kick!
