Bateaux New York

Tuesday, June 02, 2015

For my 25th birthday (May 15), my boyfriend Andres wanted to treat me to a dinner cruise, on the Bateaux. Our initial schedule was slated for the 16th, and we decided to drive into the city instead of taking the train. We were going to be just on time for boarding, but unfortunately there was a major accident in addition to a nearby street festival, and we ended up completely missing the entire the thing. It left the pier 20 minutes before we finally arrived. Even though we were disappointed, I thought it was a good sign for us since it ended up pouring during the night.

Fortunately, the team at Bateaux allowed us to reschedule and we went for the 23rd. This time, it went smoothly and it was bright & sunny. I wore this gorgeous dress, handmade by my talented friend Tanuka (a birthday gift from her).

I was surprised with a bouquet of red roses, and we had a bottle of wine ready for us by our amazing window seats. Staff was friendly on board, and loved our waiter! There was a jazz band playing covers throughout the night, and luckily we were on the side of the boat where we could properly view the band play. The food was delicious. I started with the beet & goat cheese salad, had the Moroccan chicken (was sooo good, I tried to savor it but ended up eating it so quickly). I finished it off with the classic New York cheesecake, and they sweetly added a candle for my birthday. There were big breaks in between courses so we went outside on deck to take in the view our beloved city, and watch the sunset. It never gets old. It was definitely a fun birthday to remember.
