Do you remember that Sex and the City scene where Miranda and Carrie are out on VDay for dinner and the restaurant is filled with balloons? Well I decided that I need to go there. A friend of mine has friends in town, and we thought it'd be hilarious to suggest a very cheesy restaurant/I mean who doesn't want to dine with hundreds of balloons? So I find out the place is called Raoul's and decide to give them a call to confirm the balloons. Here is how the conversation went:

Me: Hi, yes I was wondering if you have balloons for Valentine's Day?

Raoul's: I'm sorry, what?

Me: Do you put out tons of balloons for Valentine's Day?

Raoul's: Um...sorry say again?
(Mind you he was American so no accent barrier here meaning he probably just thought I was crazy.)

Me: On Valentine's Day does the restaurant do anything special?

Raoul's: Um...

Me: I wanted to know if you had a special menu for Valentine's Day.

Raouls: OH, I'm so sorry. I kept thinking you were asking about decor!
(Little laugh, phew...)

Me (in my mind):  I WAS.

Turns out Raoul's does not fill the restaurant with balloons on Valentine's Day, just so you all know now and can now stop wondering.

They just have a special menu. 

There have to be other balloon filled restaurants out there, right?

Here are some other NYC restaurants you saw on the show.

So sweet and hilarious and concerning at the same time.
