The night started off with a warm toasty popover with butter sprinkled with pink salt :]
YUM!!! Usually I opt out of bread in the beginning since I want to leave room for the rest of it, buttttt….. WHO CAN RESIST A PIPING HOT POPOVER?!?!?!… def not me…
Partners in Crime :]
Chilled Seafood Maison
6 Jumbo Shrimp
2 East Coast Oysters
2 West coast Oysters
1/4 lb Mussels
Chilled Calamari Salad, Salmon Tartare, Fresh Crab
Paired with a yummy sparkling wine
(okay so we trusted them to pair us with good wines with our food…. which resulted in me being a bit… incoherent at the end of the night. OOOPSSS.. but yea I didn’t get a shot of all the glasses…. I asked for a list of the wines but… by the time the night was over I was wiped out… OOOOOPPPPSSSS)
Next up was the most amazing…
Kobe Beef Sashimi
himalayan salt, mushroom chips, truffle-mayo
On a pink salt slab and black truffle mayo. NOM!… so soft and just melt in your mouth yumminesssss…
The first 3 was paired with one of the most delicious Rieslings I’ve ever drunk…… nom!
Lobster & Foie Gras Roll
creamy maine lobster, foie gras, soft roll
DELICIOUS. I’m not even a mayo fan but SOOOOO GOOOOOOOODDD… one tin complaint, I wish the roll was soft.
Foie Gras Mousse
melon gazpacho, prosciutto
I just have to say the gazpacho was so light and yummy I could’ve drunk a whole bowl of this stuff!!!
Surfing Duck Foie Gras
marinated daikon, lobster and macadamia nut oil
I think this one could possibly have been my favorite…
Mini Deep Dish Foie Gras Pizza

My half on my plate…
Seared Foie Gras & Texas Corn

This was sooo goood with the corn :] I don’t even like creamed corn but this was so good!!!
The cornbread was a bit dry but had a kick of spice to it… me likey!!!
You’ll see in my next post about my trip to Chicago that I finally had my first Chicago hot dog (or in his words, a “real hot dog”) but I loved how they gave us a mini version:
Chicago Style “Foie Gras Dog”
grilled foie gras, heirloom tomatoes, mango relish, homemade sport peppers
Foie Gras Pierogies
grandma’s dough, ramp kraut
Chicken Fried Foie
black eyed peas & pickled okra and hushuppies
This was the first time I ever had a hushpuppy either. hehehe… everything was so tasty!!!
Beer Fried Foie
beer battered foie gras, north woods slaw, tartar sauce
What a sexy innards shot…
It went really well with the slaw too… nom!!!
So, before our foies came out, the boy was getting steak envy and we were both drooling over all the peoples’ steaks around us…. SO, we ordered a huge yummy steak :] It came out before our last foie dish (the sweet one)
Asiago truffle fries
55 Day Aged Ribeye
