1.5 Years

What did Matt and I do in celebration of our 1.5 year anniversary? Bern's, of course! To read all about our first totally unforgettable experience at the classiest (not to mention most vegetarian-friendly) of Steakhouses located in Tampa, click here. Our reservation was for 5 p.m. and we didn't leave there until after 9 p.m. because instead of trying to turn around tables like your average restaurant, this place takes their time with guests. It's so refreshing to have waitstaff that's not just friendly and knowledgeable, but also simply loves food and their jobs. For example, our waiter happily brought us six wine samples, just to make sure we had a perfect pairing with our appetizer. Another thing that's pretty unique about the staff at Bern's: every employee starts in the kitchen and learns about how to prepare the food and where it comes from, and then eventually work their way up from there. Since I could probably gush about Bern's for hours, I will just get down to it. Here's a peak at our evening!
