Birthday Beignets

My birthday isn't until this Saturday, but my boyfriend took me to an early birthday dinner last night at Annisa. I don't think he could've picked a better restaurant: it was elegant, but low-key; modern yet romantic. A Michelin-starred restaurant located right in the neighborhood, who knew? 

This was one of the nicest dinners I've had in years. The stunning 5-course tasting menu ended with a warm bundle of butterscotch beignets, served with a side of frozen bourbon milk. Imagine freshly fried beignets, crisp and golden with a dusting of powdered sugar, bursting with smooth, melty salted butterscotch sauce once you pop them in your mouth. Heavenly.
