|Champagne Flight begins the meal|
In July, we needed to pick a nice place to celebrate my Better Half’s birthday. He is the sort of guy who will consistently allow himself to be put on the back burner for any one of his three girls, someone who won’t ask for attention, but who deserves to have a fuss made over him as often as possible. After years of focusing on the distractions of parenting, we are again finding we have time for each other. With so much to celebrate, it really seemed important to take him somewhere nice for his birthday.

Bottom line is that Rivoli was as good as its reputation, perhaps better. The food was inventive, well presented, fresh, everything upscale food is supposed to be. The atmosphere was quiet and romantic, just the ticket for our birthday date night. We both enjoyed our meal tremendously and cannot wait to revisit to see what else Chef / Owner Wendy Brucker has in store! She’s a force to be eaten with! Check it out for yourself, and Bon Appetit!
