Emma’s 20th Birthday: 86 West and Deep Dish Cookie Pie


Excited birthday girl and Andy

My bestfriendinthewholeworldever Emma turned 20 last weekend, so of course I planned tons of fun surprises for her birthday!  First on the list was going out to dinner in Doylestown.  We went to 86 West, which is actually where Andy cooks!

86 West is a hip bar/restaurant specializing in steak, seafood, and sushi.

We decided it would be more fun to order some small plates and sushi to share.
a tuna crunch roll (my personal favorite, just the right combination of spicy and sweet, crunchy and smooth, and hot and cold. YUM!)

a lollipop roll (the presentation of this is great)

fried calamari

wok-fried brussel sprouts in ginger soy sauce

and vegan sushi (with black beans, guacamole, mango, and lots of other good stuff…it tasted like sushi burritos!)

It’s fun to go places with another blogger because you don’t feel weird taking pictures of everything!

When we went back to my house, Andy presented Emma with his present to her…Chocolate-Covered Katie’s Deep Dish Cookie Pie!! When we made it before, we were really just testing it for Emma’s birthday cake. It was a success, she loved it!

After eating cake we went to bed early because the next day I was taking Emma to do Bikram yoga. Stay tuned for the next post to see how that went!

  2. What a fantastic birthday celebration. You are such a great friend to plan so much fun for Emma. Happy birthday, Emma!

  3. This is too cute. I’ve always wanted to try out 86 West, but part of me is scared to go to any of the places owned by the Knight House because I know so many people that work there.
