For my birthday this year, all of my girlfriends and their fellas gathered to celebrate at Capdeville in New Orleans. It's a sweet little hidden gem! Surprisingly, this was my first time there! So much for being hip and in the "know"... I'm old and in the bed by 10 instead. ;)
Describing the atmosphere is a little difficult... I keep contradicting myself with descriptive words.
It's a little retro... but also modern. It's sort of posh... but totally laid back. It's the perfect place to whisper in your fellas ear... or scream at your friend across the table. See? You're just going to have to take my word for it that it's worth giving a go if you're ever in my neck of the woods!
Capdeville serves comfort food but they put a swanky little twist on it & I for one, am all for it!
I ordered the white truffle mac-n-cheese(which didn't disappoint!) and MR ordered a Capdeville burger that he was completely pleased with. Oh, and we split an order of Chorizo & Manchego fries. It didn't suck.
My friends and I were tucked into a cozy alcove with the walls covered in 80's albums, where we ate, drank & shared details of our lives as of recent. It was a perfect evening. My girlfriends all got me perfect gifts, some of which included bare minerals make up, an amazing blending brush from sephora, philosophy bath goodies, a leopard clutch, a scarf, an anthro gift card & also, my bestie asked if I would so kindly stand as her maid of honor in her upcoming wedding!
I went home and snuggled up next to my MR and felt like one lucky lady!
