Birthday Lunch

My beautiful and thoughtful mother took me out for a birthday lunch this afternoon.  I couldn't think of a place I wanted to go, so she suggested an incredible place that she had been a few times (she always goes to new places and seems to know the "dish" on them- pun intended!). 

This place is in the Central West End of St. Louis; if you are local, you must go.  If I explained this place, it simply wouldn't do it justice.  So you can go here for more info, and I've uploaded some pics I took while I was there.  I'm not in much of a mood to write, so I will just leave you with this afternoon's photographs.  Thank you, Mommy!!! You are the best:)

Happy Birthday to all the VIRGOs out there!!!
