Happy Friday! After a week of hot and humid summer heat, the weather has cooled and I’m looking forward to the weekend. The whole holiday in the middle of the week thing sort of threw me off. But, now it’s time to relax and I can’t complain about a short work week!
We’re going to squeeze in a date night tomorrow. No plans yet, but hopefully some much needed QT with the husband! Completely belated, but I wanted to recap our last amazing date night out at Iridescence – Motor City Casino. I’m sure I don’t have to say much as the pictures of our delicious night out will say more. But, it was such a fun treat to enjoy some one on one time with D over an endless feast of the best of the best offered at Motor City Casino.
We started off our night in the bar lounge area that features a great happy hour menu of yummy eats and drinks. The ambiance is great and perfect for some down time after a long day at work.
We headed into the main dining room to take in the beautiful views and ordered a few dinner time drinks. The moscow mule was delish and the strawberry margarita had a bit of peppery kick to it. We enjoyed our drinks as we perused the dining menu, complete with pictures of each dish. Needless to say we ordered a ton of food and enjoyed every bite!
All of the plates were so good, I can’t rave enough about the whole experience at Iridescence. From the breathtaking views, to the top notch service and variety and quality of the food and drinks, we enjoyed an amazing date night out at Iridescence – Motor City Casino. I definitely recommend it and jotted a few notes down about the different dishes we tried below:
Salads: Spring Squash and Honeydew Salad – marcona almonds, basil, ricotta salata, lemon vinaigrette (SO yummy, I loved the textures & flavor, perfect for the season.)
Appetizers: 48-Hour Short Rib – huckleberry and mustard glaze, cabbage slaw, pickled ramps (Perfect bite of savory with sweet, crisp bite)
Hawaiian Bigeye Ahi Tuna – avocado, yuzu gelée, cucumber, fresh Japanese wasabi (NOM, so fresh and cool, one of my faves!)
Alaskan King Crab on Brioche – hollandaise, celery, lemon vinaigrette
Entrees: Imported Japanese A-5 Kobe Strip Loin & South African Lobster Tail (No comment needed, melt in your mouth delicious!)
Sides: Lobster Mac & Cheese, Grilled Asparagus, and Broiled Zucchini and Peppers with Feta
Dessert: Cappuccinos paired with the Creme Brulee (my favorite!) and the Chocolate Monaco – a chocolate mousse with a toffee crunch, rich chocolate glaze, 24k gold leaf, trio of sauces
Thanks to Motor City Casino and Iridescence for hosting us to a fabulous and delicious date night out!
