Date Night at Jasper’s
Another one of our goals for 2017 is to have a monthly date night! This can’t just be a spur of the moment dinner or a let’s rent a movie ( though don’t get me wrong, I love a good pizza and Netflix kinda night!) We both felt it was important to actually plan a nice date for each other. We decided in December that we would rotate month’s and the other person would be in charge of planning out the date. January was my month to plan, so I chose Jasper’s in Market Street – The Woodlands! ( I set the bar high, so that he had to plan something spectacular for February, aka my birthday month haha!)
Date Night at Jasper’s
Before we get started, of course, I had to show you what I wore! We went on a late Sunday afternoon, so I chose something cute, but a little more on the casual side. This sweatshirt dress is SO soft and comfortable and the rose embroidery dressed it up just the right amount.
We sat in this gorgeous inside patio room with big windows that over looked the center of Market Street. It was just beautiful andJohn was so happy, because the Manager, Robert, put the Packers vs. Cowboy game on for him. It totally made John’s night – that and seeing Packers win! (GO PACK GO!)
For drinks I had white wine and John highly recommends the Midnight Express. He said it tasted like an adult vanilla latte.
If you like blue cheese, then you absolutely HAVE to try the blue cheese potato chips! OMG words can’t even describe how good these are.
As our appetizer we also tried the crab cakes because John is obsessed with any and all crab cakes. Now we are not food critics but we watch a lot of Top Chef and Chopped so I believe in 2017 that qualifies us in some capacity to critique these crab cakes lol. All I can say is that we ate all of it. And that while the breading was different from any crab cake we have ever had it was a welcomed change as well was the jicama salad that shared the plate, but the real star here was the poblano cream sauce that was under the crab. It was heavenly! The Verdict? Definitely order them.
This place does a wedge right! LETMETELLYA! John and I split the wedge salad – this is just my portion. & they added an onion ring. It was like they saw right into my little foodie heart with the addition of that onion ring, y’all.
Only two words – SOOOOOOO GOOD. PS: this picture of John, seriously cracks me up. He always makes the craziest expressions when I try and take his pic! hah!
By this point, we were already starting to get full! We split the full slab of ribs. Jasper’s ribs were voted top 3 by Bon Appetit’s for “America’s Best Ribs.” So of course with an award like that you have to try them right?
The potatoes with this dish were hands down the best thing I ate the entire night. It was my absolute favorite. Potatoes are my jam and these potatoes played a rock concert with every bite.
On to Dessert! We may have decided try all three of these! (Don’t judge) The Manager said these are the 3 best sellers. The bread pudding with vanilla ice-cream, lemon tarte, and butterfinger creme brulee.
In the end we would recommend Jasper’s to you for a great night out on the town or for a romantic date night. It’s right in the heart of Market Street, it has great atmosphere, a wide drink selection and the food is fantastic. Did we mention that the Chef/Owner Kent Rathbun beat Bobby Flay on Iron Chef? Google it. I would love to know if you have any awesome date night suggestions for restaurants or activities around the Houston area that would be fun for the next date I plan in March!
Thanks for stopping by! Have a great weekend!
