Last week’s dinner, epic for The Cat.

Started with a text to Chef H, our menu choices: Caesar Salad, lobster bisque, crab cake, Vitello Tonnato (to try), lobster risotto, and souffle for dessert.

Chef responded “Looking at the menu … I say leave it to Chef.”

Ok, sigh, he has never steered us wrong.

To The Cat, from Chef

The Cat’s cocktail.

Watermelon Martini

Chef’s tasting menu: Lobster Bisque, lobster in cognac, flamed at table (The Mouse didn’t take a pic).

Caesar Salad

Extra anchovies on the side for The Mouse. Nom!

Crab Cake

Black bean sauce, tomato coulis, tropical fruit garnish.

Vitello Tonnato

Yellowfin Ahi sashimi, oven-roasted veal, white tuna sauce, pesto and caper vinaigrette. The Mouse wanted to try based on the menu description. Try try. The Mouse thinks, could’ve used a shoyu wasabi (or Coleman mustard) dipping sauce, but don’t tell Chef. Jus’ The Mouse’s Asian palate.

Yuzu Sorbet

Palate cleanser. The Mouse could eat a bucket of this.

Wagyu Rib Eye, Morel Mushrooms, White Asparagus, Lobster Risotto

Chef (restaurant) flew the white asparagus in from Holland. Jet lag. Hee hee.

Grand Marnier Souffle

Orange Peel Fire Fountain

The Mouse always loves this part.

Banana Foster

Chef loves presenting this dessert. Locally grown apple bananas.

See? Told ya epic. If you notice, all of the items listed/requested were on the menu and more. So publicly, it’s Chef’s choice menu, but The Mouse privately had some input. 😉

Enjoy. Eat well.

Oh well, wishing you and yours a happy lunar new year!

Smoother roads, calmer waters, clearer skies, and softer landings. 🙂

Enjoy. Eat well.
