I got to go to my favorite restaurant on Saturday night and, as always, Senate was an absolute delight: great company, wonderful service, and even better food—just like always. This time was different though, because Date and I got to experience his brother and his two friends’ first tryst with one of our favorites and one of Cincinnati’s best.
We got Poutine to start—a MUST in Date’s and my book. I glanced over at Date’s brother, who said, “I just got goosebumps” after his first bite of Senate’s famous delicacy. Our three first-time companions were especially enamored by the Poutine, but also really liked their food that came thereafter (truthfully, it’s hard to be so blown away by the precursor and love everything that succeeds it the same way). In all, the five of us got the Amanda Bynes, Senate Burger x2, Trailer Park, Dog of the Day (Ke$ha), and—of course—truffle fries and duck fat fries. We nearly ate all of it, too.
You know what’s just as good as enjoying another trip to Senate? Seeing other people enjoy it almost as much as I do.
