53 By The Sea

David treated me to a romantic birthday dinner at 53 By The Sea, which is a new Italian restaurant located off Ala Moana Blvd on Ahui Street in Honolulu.

    what a wonderful celebration! The food looks delicious, I love all your choices! Thanks for sharing and Happy Belated Birthday! It’s a great idea to split food, such as the salad. K and I split a sundae in a restaurant yesterday.

    Happy, Happy, Birthday, Gigi!
    Looks like a great new restaurant. Seems I’ve heard of another one elsewhere. The “53” means you were celebrating birthday 53, right? Oh, why do I pick on you? (Maybe because I’m only an itty bitty bit younger than you….?)
    Aloha, Cheers, DrumMajor

    My daughter, Julia, and you have the same sign. Makes you think. Well, not very much. Actually I’m not much of an astrologist. I posted her birthday in Bellingham, Washington, where I was visiting, on my Facebook. She is wearing a big sombrero and there is a mariachi band, so you know it wasn’t.
    But I know you don’t like Facebook, although I have the minimum privacy settings, so the pictures may be visible to all. At this stage of my life, privacy is not high on my list. I would rather communicate, communicate, and then communicate some more. My heart is on my sleeve, and that’s the way I want it—for now.
    Your pictures are great and it’s always good to hear about new restaurants. I wonder f Honolulu is one of the great restaurant cities? I’m beginning to think it is. It’s great to have a romantic dinner with a loved one.

    The sombrero and mariachi sentence should read—“so you know it wasn’t an Italian restaurant.”

  10. NRIGirl Says:

    That’t wonderful! Wishing you a very happy birthday and many happy returns Gigi!

    The pictures make me crave for some seafood…

  13. Musings Says:

    Happy Birthday, Gigi! What amazing food! Love your hat. How wonderful of David to help you celebrate your birthday so beautifully.

  14. Tilly Bud - The Laughing Housewife Says:

    Happy Birthday!

    You look very nice in your hat,

  15. Denise Says:

    What a wonderful way to celebrate your birthday. I’m a little late but Happy Birthday!

  16. Grannymar Says:

    Many happy returns of the day, Gigi. That restaurant looks wonderful as does the food. I love calamari. Nom nom. If I say my birthday is in March, may I come with you next time??
