The Red Violin

Last night, Franca, Eddie, Marylinda, Jack, Lino, Tina, Maria, Anthony, Hubster and I went out for the first time as couples...sans kids. WHAT A BLAST!

Marylinda chose the venue...The Red Violin, an authentic Brazilian restaurant on the Danforth. WHAT an AMAZING choice!

Our reservations were for 7:00 and we arrived right on time. We had a drink while we waited for the others to arrive and then the feast began! We started with an all you can eat salad/sushi/appetizer bar which was kept refreshed all night long. Hubster and the other boys drooled over the mussels and shrimp, while I stuck to sushi and various salads. When we were ready, the waitress brought us each a card with a red side and a green side. Green meant "bring on the food!" and red meant "ok, I've had enough!" We were served side dishes of grilled veggies, sauteed mushrooms, fried plantains (OMG MMMM!), rice, black beans and bacon and flava flour. Then came the meat. Oh.my.GOSH, the meat. Several men brought skewers of everything from chicken to turkey and bacon to steak, beef, veal, ribs, lamb chops, sausages, more chicken, more beef, more steak and it just kept coming! You were to use your tongs to take the slice of meat from the skewers and each one was better than the last. I am SUCH a meat lover, but le me tell you, I certainly had my fill of meat last night. Absolutely delicious! For dessert, they served hot pineapple coated in cinnamon (OMG was it good!)

There were Brazilian dancers and acrobat/martial arts specialists doing the most amazing things with their bodies! We were all invited to dance with them and let me tell you, I have not had such a good time in a LONG time!! The drinks were flowing and the food was hard to keep up with!

When it was all over, each couple owed $220.00...I know, that's a HECK of alot of money, but it was worth every single penny. I don't know what was better...the food, the company or the entertainment. Hubster and I NEVER go out on dates, so $220.00 was a bargain if you average it out over the course of our marriage. I would pay it again in a heartbeat for the quality of food, service and entertainment!

GREAT, GREAT fun and food! Visit The Red Violin...you will NOT be disappointed!
