It was my 10 year wedding anniversary and I tried to be all nostalgic and book a night in the same hotel that both we stumbled into, in my wedding dress (sans shoes), on our wedding night 10 years ago. I won’t tell you where, just in case it grosses you out — thinking of me and my huz on our wedding night… oh stuff it, I will. It was The Treasury on King William Street. And it hasn’t aged a bit!

Anyway, being in the heart of our city, we wanted to go out for dinner somewhere a little bit fancy, but still cool enough that I didn’t have to dress up to the nines. Basically, I wanted to wear my new Zara slides, lols!

We googled “best restaurants and bars in the West End” and realised there wasn’t just one list of all the best places to go. So, I put together my 10-year-anniversary-short-list for you to steal, use and enjoy as you wish.

PS: We picked Rigoni’s Bistro…and it was AWESOME!
