Happy Friday folks! We had a busy and exciting (and tiring) week around here. After a whirlwind 3 day house hunting trip back in June (where about 35 houses and 4 offers later, we went under contract for a house) and a month of paperwork and waiting, we finally closed on our very first house this week!
Rick's Chophouse in downtown McKinney. It came highly recommended by several folks, but I was still very surprised by how good the food was. It's a lovely restaurant, featuring the historical building's original limestone walls and wood floors. The staff is warm and welcoming. Our waitress, who mentioned that they're required to sample and be well-versed in all of their wines, was able to suggest very good pairings for our dinner. We began with salads, a perfectly dressed Caesar and a delicious Field Greens Salad with spiced pecans, roasted grapes, and feta. When our entrees came out, my husband's filet stole the show, cooked to a rosy medium that just melted in your mouth. My sea bass was no slouch though. Seared with a golden crust and served with whipped potatoes, crisp-tender asparagus, and citrus butter, it was wonderful! They were even nice enough to provide congratulatory desserts on the house!
