A Girl & Her Food: 5-year Wedding Anniversary Dinner at Boka


5-year Wedding Anniversary Dinner at Boka

My Husband, Steve, and I celebrated our 5-year wedding anniversary at Boka.
When Steve announced that we were celebrating at Boka I was extremely excited as it is one of my favorite restaurants in Chicago.  The space is very romantic and Chef Lee Wolen always blows my taste buds away.  As a blogger, I don't like to review restaurants as I leave it for the professionals like my girlfriend, Sarah Freeman of Zagat. However, I love to share what was "on Kat's plate" and its up to you decide whether you want to go and eat there. 
The Boka team made our night very special and I highly recommend heading there for your next special occasion or a fabulous dinner.  
I also want to include  that the Eater Awards are upon us, I am proud to say I voted for Lee of Chef of the year,  find out if Lee wins this Monday! 

I apologize for dark or blurry pictures, as my main focus was on my husband, to enjoy our dinner and not stage picture perfect food photos.

  8. No matter what type of Michael Kors Bags Outlet each individual got, they all had one thing in common. We all know that getting something on sale is like winning a mini lottery, but to find a name brand handbag like Michael Kors Black Friday Sale for instance, discounted is like a slice of heaven on earth. I have personally attacked my husband with hugs and kisses when finding Official Coach Outlet Online at discounted prices.

    Michael Kors Factory Outlet stores can be found in malls all over. MK Outlet and other Coach merchandise can also be found in some boutiques. Inspired by the same material baseball gloves are made from, these Coach Bags On Sale Online are versatile and stylish. Since it's conception, the Michael Kors Handbags Outlet has been produced into a variety of designs, colors, shapes, and styles that have won top pick of millions of women the world over.

    New Michael Kors Bags are the most sought after handbag. Since Coach Outlet Online is one of the most recognized name brands in the world of fashion, you will find A-list celebrities down to small girls wearing them.
