Recently I did a press trip to Houston sponsored through the GoHouston! Travel Campaign hosted by New Creative Writing and Social Media Marketing. As always all opinions are my own.

My husband and I took this trip as sort of a second honeymoon, so when we had the opportunity on our first night to dine at Bistro CityCentre it kicked off our celebrating in a big way.

Bistro CityCentre has been deemed one of the top ten most romantic Houston restaurants by the Houston Press and I agree that it has earned its place.

As soon as you walk in you can feel it... it's intimate and sexy and makes you feel like you are falling in love all over again.

This is a place that you could bring your kids, but trust me you won't want to. You will want to have this place to yourself.

There is a small candle glowing on every table to spark a little ambiance, and the staff is attentive enough to make sure you get everything you might need, but not overbearing as to bother you too much.

We first ordered the Three Cheese Flat Bread to start which I would highly recommend!

The flavor combinations of the smoked mozzarella, basil pesto, and balsamic were superb. For a slight moment I thought of the kids and how they would have loved it. 

But I snapped back to reality and back to this romantic night with my husband alone.

Once our meals arrive my mouth is watering looking at the masterpiece in front of me.

I ordered the Prime New York Strip -  pan roasted strip, loaded mashed potatoes, butter braised brussel sprouts, sauce au poivre.

Can you say yummy? So juicy, soft and succulent... exactly what you want with a New York Strip.

And as you can see it is a pretty large portion, I had to save half of it for later.

The au poivre sauce is so flavorful and complements the meat but doesn't over power it.

Once we had finished our meals we just sat back, talked to each other in peace and quiet and just soaked it all in.

A familiar feeling started to come over me, the way I used to feel before we had kids.

Sometimes we don't realize as parents that we need to get out without the kids and enjoy a romantic evening just the two of us.

Bistro CityCentre made our first night in Houston perfect.
