Happy Birthday, Doc!

We celebrated our friend's birthday this weekend at the Plaza III Steakhouse in Brookwood Village. The Doc turned 41 and we had a great meal and great time celebrating with them. It is a treat to get dressed up and go somewhere fancy....and I do mean fancy.
There was a minimum to hold the private dining room for the 9 of us and BELIEVE me it was not $50.
The Plaza has choice cuts of steak and lobster as it's specialty.
And an AMAZING menu of Martinis-

especially the PlazaIIItini, their specialty, with some added peach schnapps, a Hawaiian-tinni, with Malibu rum and banana liquor for an amazing taste and an amazing concoction known as the Blue topaz. Here are our lovely taste-testers in action.

We had shellfish samplers for appetizer, shared side dishes cheddar potatoes, brocolli and grilled vegetables and each ordered our own meat.
I, of course, had the fabulous grilled chicken.
The service was great, atmosphere was so comfortable and food was delicious.
The lobster was HUGE. I did try a bite, and although I am not a lobster fan, my friends said it was among the best. They have it all out of the shell for you as well so that you can eat with no trouble. I am sure that little service was not for free.
And while the lobster was huge, I can't say so for the fillet.
Princess and A shared one and just look at Princess' portion.






While certainly not for the regular Friday night eat out,
you can't put a price on good friends and sharing a good time with them.
For a special treat, treat yourself to the Plaza III.
A steakhouse to compare with some of the best in the country....and some really great grilled chicken too.
