Left to right. Pea custard, almond soup, crab and a fennel cream with fennel gelee under.
Chef sent out some risotto for me, tomato. This was perfectly done.
Halibut with a corn-bonito sauce and fiddlehead ferns. Most perfectly cooked piece of halibut I've had.
Jumped into this before I took a picture. Seared foie, fried green tomato and lettuce
The most tender veal I've ever had. When people say "fork tender" this is the pinacle. White corn, chard and chantarelles.
Cheeeese, I don't remember each but the one is the back was an amazing terrine of blue with golden raisins.
I had pointed at the Pappy Van Winkle's Family Reserve 23 year on the list to the server and said "oh god I never see this, my absolute favorite" but I'll just stick with wine.
And the next "course" came out.
2 fingers....thank you.
Pre dessert, mint gelee, vanilla custard and plum sorbet.
Roasted peaches and corn ice cream.
This was the "please god stop" moment but...
Liqueur soaked raspberry cake, cabernet sorbet.
Then I think they were almond macaroon, green tea cake, almond tart, orange jelly, chocolate marshmallow, mint-white chocolate.
This was the one dinner I thought I was going to explode afterwards!
