Worth Every Penny

We spent last weekend in New York, with my cousin and her boyfriend. On Sunday night, we drove around for a bit trying to find a place to eat; since none of us were really in the mood for anything in particular, we had no direction.

fter doing a bit of shopping in Mt. Kisco, they suggested a nearby place called Lexington Square Cafe, finishing their sentence in unison by saying, "but it's expensive." Ed and I looked at each other, shrugged and said, "So? Let's go," as no price is too high to pay for good food as far as we're concerned. Of course, if my step-father finds out we paid $27.00 for pasta, he's sure to go straight into full blown cardiac arrest; even if did tell him it had lobster in it.
I can't decide on the best part of the meal though - appetizer, entree or desert; although with desert, we had a sampler plate. OMG, what a great idea! I wish I could have done that with all the wonderful entree selections they had, but alas, we all chose only one. Here's our damage:Unbeknownst to me, Eddie decided to foot the entire bill, adding a generous tip as he's been trained to do under my tutelage (since I have waited on many tables in my life and it's my turn to give a little back to the service industry.) My cousin and her boyfriend are so good to us every time we're at their house, and there really is no way to ever re-pay their generosity, but good food is a good start in my book!
Where are we going next, is what I want to know?!
