Mmmm, yum, that’s it, no need to say anything more.
Thanks to a Christmas gift card, we were able to go someplace nice for our anniversary that we wouldn’t have gone to otherwise, because we-are-too-cheap!
This restaurant gave me hope that we could possibly go someplace nice again, because even without the gift card, I didn’t have a heart attack when the check arrived. hahaha ! We chose to eat on the patio and it was a little chilly, but David had a sport coat on and I grabbed my shawl on the way out the door so we were ok. Our server was male and so calm and soft spoken and quite nice. I knew I wanted a glass of wine, but I know next to nothing about wine, so I told him I wanted something that was not dry. I didn’t care if it was red, white or rose, just so it wasn’t dry. He brought me a glass of ‘Rudi Weist Reisling’ that was excellent. I could easily have consumed the entire bottle, although I would have needed quite a bit of help getting to the car. David had something dry enough to pucker you right up.
For an appetizer we had...
Steamed Blue Mussels
coconut-green curry broth, cilantro, celery, fresno chili,
grilled Rustica Bakery sourdough
After these excellent mussels, David had a spicy soup (can’t remember the name of it) and I had
House Green Salad
fennel, cherry tomatoes, radish, cucumber,
saba, Wildflower Honey vinaigrette
I don’t usually like vinaigrette dressings, but this was really good.
For our entrees, David had
Pan Roasted Lake Superior Whitefish
caramelized artichokes, cipollini onions, English peas,
candied black olives, potato “sabayon
He said it was very tender and tasty and I thought I had a picture of it, but I do not.
My entrée was
Pan Roasted Wild Acres Half Chicken
caramelized oyster mushrooms, native ramps,
house made pancetta, chicken jus
Heavenly, I wish I had some right this minute.
We ended with a trio of
smaller tasting size portions
Classic Crème Brûlée , “Kit Kat Bar”, and Goat Cheese Panna Cotta
These were okay, the Kit Kat Bar, which I didn’t eat, had a Chai ice cream that was really good. The Crème Brulee was okay also, but Andy makes it way better and the Panna Cotta was okay too.
I would like to go back again and eat in the bar instead of the restaurant, a little more informal but still wonderful food.
