Forbidden City

Forbidden City, one of my favorite restaurants, had a special lobster dinner this week. They are using Open Table for reservations and for a nudge to use them, they had this great offer. With an Open Table reservation and a Promo Code number, you got the three course prix fixe Lobster Dinner with wine pairings for $29.95 [full price was $39.95]. So since I wanted to entertain for a birthday party, that is where we went. The meal was exceptional! The service, as usual, was super.
