Happy 30th Birthday T!

Last night we attended a 30th birthday party for our friend T. Her husband, M, organized a big group dinner for her at Falcon in Hollywood. The place is very chic with lots of dark wood, simplistic furniture, and candlelight. We had a room reserved just for our group, which is where we enjoyed dinner and then after-dinner bottle service.

Dinner started with a simple green salad with balsamic vinegrette (delish) and then we had our choice of either wild salmon, chicken breast or petite filet mignon. Jim and I both chose the chose the filet (as did most of the group), which was accompanied with parmesan puree, crisped onions, a parmesan chip and port reduction. The food was really good! The steak was cooked perfectly and the port reduction was a sweet and savory and complemented the steak nicely. Those who ordered the fish and chicken also had good things to say about their meals. For dessert, we were presented with a mini molten chocolate cake and a small scoop of ice cream -- delicious.

After dinner, bottles of Grey Goose were brought to the table along with plenty of mixers, including Red Bull, a special request by the birthday girl. The rest of the night was spent talking and drinking. It was great to catch up with freinds we haven't seen in awhile and just hang out with everyone. Having our own private room for the entire night was great as we were not jostled by the other patrons and were able to talk to each other without having to yell over the drone of the rest of the lounge.

M did a great job putting this together for T and I'd say the night was very successful. Happy 30th birthday T! Hope you had a great night! :)
