#90 Try 10 new restaurants (9/10)

90. Try 10 new restaurants. (9/10)
In the past few days, I've been to two new restaurants. First was Blimpies. My mom had a flat tire and we had to go to two NTBs to get a new set of tires, blah blah. We didn't want to walk all the way to McDonald's or Five Guys so we chose Blimpies. Plus they were advertising paninis that looked really good. I got a panini that had turkey, pepperoni, roasted peppers and provolone cheese with creamy Italian dressing. It was DELICIOUS. In fact, thinking about it now is making me drool. My mom got a different panini. After we ate, we were like "oh, we don't have to have these every day," but yesterday we were like "damn, those were good." Yummy. I hope they're part of the regular menu and not a special.

Then, yesterday was Boyfriend and I's three year anniversary, and he took me out to dinner to a small place in Old Town Fairfax, Bellissimo Northern Italian Cuisine. Oh my goodness, this food was definitely bellissimo. Fantastico. Delicioso. (Is it the same in Italian as it is in Spanish?) In fact, just thinking of the yummy oil and Parmesan cheese they gave us with the bread I had to go get some downstairs and the only bread we have is Sourdough and it was rock hard. My jaws hurt but damn, it tasted good. Boyfriend got ravioli and I got the special: mussels and grilled spinach on linguini with garlic and wine sauce. It was so. good. I wish I could have it right now. I could eat it every day for a month. Ok, maybe not, but still, it was damn good. And mussels don't have the boogery texture that clams and scallops have. Yum. I need to go down to the Waterfront and get some mussels and cook those suckers up.
