Let's just say the restaurant will definitely get a second date. The guy, not so much, but that's an entirely different blog post. So, I figured I'd share a few highlights from the evening.
- The grilled zucchini small plate was a stand out. With the crispy maitake mushrooms and miso aioli. Please go and order this even though you be tempted to order differently. Like I was initially. But you'll be pleasantly surprised.
3. As a treat, the oysters arrived with a glass of the Ingrid Gross gemischter satz from Vienna, which I may now prefer with oysters over champagne. I'll have to go back and investigate further.
4. The guys next to us shared a few bottles of red wine and among other dishes - the lobster roll - which was a miss on our part as it looked, and I hear is, awesome. I'll also go back for this.
5. The other standout was the sweet corn creme brûlée. Perfectly creamy and topped with lightly toasted meringue and dried corn. The dessert makes you think summer isn't ending. I'm a creme brûlée purist but this variation is great in my book.
I hope you enjoyed your Indian summer Sunday. No matter where you are.
