Our first stop was brunch at Max's Wine Dive. She had the breakfast egg sandwich and I got the donuts and wings. It was pretty damn good.
Then we got coffee at Blacksmith, arguably one of the best coffee spots in Houston.

We then stopped at Common Bond bakery for dessert but damn, the line was out the door. No thanks. So we went to the next best thing, Central Market. I love this place. We got a cake (for dessert) and beer (for me).

For dinner, we ate at The Original Ninfa's on Navigation. It was jammed pack. No need for a prime ribeye steak. Steak fajitas will do.
Afterwards, we burned off some of those excessive calories by strolling around Discovery Green and seeing Field of Light, an art instillation by Bruce Munro. It was a crisp, cool night.
Out of curiosity, I did a price comparison of the two different anniversary plans.
Plan A - Vic & Anthony's
Crab cake $20
Prime ribeye steak $48
Filet mignon $49
Mashed potatoes $9
Creamed corn $10
Total = $168
Plan B - Random good eats
Max's Wine Dive (brunch + tax + tip) $38
Blacksmith (coffee + tip) $12
Central Market (dessert and beer) $31
Ninfa's (dinner + tax + tip) $42
Total = $123
Hmmm, that's quite a difference. I rather stuff my face with good (affordable) food all day long than to have one really good (expensive) meal. This might be the end of the high-end steak dinners.
