Delissa surprised me by taking me out for dinner on the Friday before my birthday. We ended up going to Maggiano’s restaurant. It has to be one of my favorite places to eat because the food is awesome. We did the dinner special that allows you to eat dinner that night and get another entree to take home. It was like I got two birthday dinners for the price of one, but this review is not about Maggiano’s. It is about a new place that we tried out in the mall named Cibus.
Delissa and I have passed this place several times on our way to the family restroom, but we never stopped in. Well on Friday, we got this crazy idea to try it out. We walked over, and we were pleasantly surprised by the great dessert that we had. The banana split with gelato is an amazing treat. I never knew that it could be so good. The atmosphere was great. We were able to sit outside and just talk. It was a little cold, but they had several heaters that kept us warm. I would definitely recommend this place for a romantic night with a significant other. We are hoping to go back soon and try out the entrees. Who knows when our next date night will be?
I think the best thing about the place is that you can look out over the courtyard. Delissa and I just talked for what seemed like hours. We then paid our bill and danced on the sidewalk. There was music playing in the background, and you could even see the stars. It really was the perfect way to end the evening. If you are ever hungry and in the Northpark area, I think you should give this restaurant a try. It will be a pleasant surpise for you.
P.S. Delissa thanks for the great surprise! It was an awesome night. It reminded me of all our adventures in college.
