Welcome to my Birthday Dinner! thank you for sharing it with me...
I started with a Basil Martini made with muddled basil, vodka, malibu rum, and passionfruit puree
DH and I split the roasted peppers, white anchovies and caper berries appetizer served with grilled baguette
I then had the Bibb Salad with strawberries
DH had the 'Crimson soup with Lentil and Chorizo' We think it was carrots that made Chef name it Crimson, because it wasn't. I didn't get a picture of the soup, but it was yummy!
My entree was the duck. When we arrived a woman told me 'I just had the duck! It's fantastic!!' It was! served with brown basmati rice and curried watermelon rind.
to accompany the duck, I ordered the Brunello. It's a good thing CT has 'merlot to go' laws. The rest is now in a decanter at home!
DH's entree was the salmon, served with marinated olives, peppers and hard-boiled egg.
Dessert (of course we did dessert! It's my birthday!!) for me were the apple fritters with butterscotch sauce.
DH had some chocolate mousse-type thing with s'more in the name
A great meal, a fun time, and a really cute and comfortable space for dining.
My apologies for the lighting on the pics... restaurant ambiance and my cell phone. none-the-less, it's still good food porn in my opinion jface>
