Date Night @ the Book Bindery

Another place on my list to cross off…but wait, I want to go again. Put the Book Bindery back on my list, please!

We started the evening with a different kind of “starter”. Sipping a flight of wine from the “wine next door”. And, we choose a bottle to enjoy with our meal. Then we moved into the glass encased room. Feels like summer is coming as the sun goes down during our dining adventure. And then we tasted a few more bottles from the wine next door – and switched our pairing for the night to a 2009 Syrah.

Now for the actual starter course:

Mine: Salad of Hawaiian Hearts of Palm, Apple-Pear, Mizuna

His: Hudson Valley Foie Gras Terrine, Cocoa Nib Financier, Pickled Turnips, Cherries, Truffle-Madeira Gelée

On of the most amazing presentations. Nothing short of a work of art. 

Next:

Mine: Grilled Mishima Ranch “Flavor Curve”, Marble Potatoes, Creamed Nettles, Tempura Hen-of-the-Woods Mushrooms, Sauce Périgourdine

I ate nettles! No stinging, just y-y-yum!

His: Anderson Ranch Lamb Rack, Crispy Panisse, Artichokes, Roasted Tomato, Garlic-Lamb Jus

Finish:

Mine: Chocolate Cake, Whisky Caramel, Candied Walnuts, Banana Ice Cream

Dessert…chocolate is always my first choice.
