eric did some browsing of the internet and found out that this week was restaurant week in old town, alexandria. so he took me to a restaurant called bilbo baggins, which is a few blocks off of busy king street. upon entering the restaurant, we really didn't know what to expect, with a restaurant having a lord of the rings reference as a name. it had a very bar-like environment, the menu upon first glance seemed pretty typical, but when our dinner was brought to us we were pleasantly surprised. i had duck and eric had salmon and both were delicious. i had already taken too many bites out of my dinner when i thought about taking a photo of it for blogging purposes.
