It's Restaurant Week in my city! And you know I LOOOOOVE to eat! One of my favorite style bloggers, Vivi of Heart, Print & Style, and I had dinner at Sax last night, a 9700-square foot restaurant/lounge with a 20-foot enclosed infinity stage directly above the 1st floor bar.
It was our first time there (we had previously been talking about planning our excursion, though) and eat we did! We had a three course meal--1st course for me: American Wagyu beef sliders, 2nd course: a succulent salmon dish , 3rd course: Saxual Chocolate cake (the vanilla ice cream was the business!); oh, and this was all washed down with a very tasty cocktail, concocted with Grey Goose pear vodka, St.Germain and lemon juice, the Le Deux.
--The second course should be here, but I forgot to
photograph before I started to eat it. Sorry, guys!--
Moving right along to dessert...
On Monday nights, this intimate space has a Burlesque show every 15 minutes--think Eyes Wide Shut meets Do You Think You Can Dance?--so we got the opportunity to take advantage of seeing it. I mean, who can say no to dinner theatre?
The decor here is very heavily influenced by the Baroque period--lots of gold leaf, ornate mouldings, tufted damask banquettes, red velvet and over the top chandeliers.
This chandelier was so gorgeous! It was in the entry way, and I thought
the lighting in this particular space was sooo sublime. Absolutely perfect!
I wouldn't be me if I didn't include some photos of my eye makeup for the evening.
I used MAC's Outre (inner eyelid), Brun (outer lid/crease) and Flip (highlight):
Remember to Always...
