School Night. Date Night.

On a school night, of all things! While the girl is away at a school retreat, we take advantage of the eve with a little date night at Bastille in Ballard.

As I was a bit late in arriving due to a rainy evening commute, we sat down and ordered the Frites & Aioli to minimize my hunger. Since the frites included a drizzle of truffle oil, a few bites made the world good again.

And we followed the frites with:

  • Haricots verts salad. A delicous combination of green beans, white beans, young feta, preserved lemons, green onion and dill.
  • Billy’s tomatoes. Plus smoked hazelnuts, fig vinegar and tarragon.
  • Then I choose the Smoked salmon tarting on a bed of arugula.
  • He choose Chicken liver pâté accompanied by peach rum jelly and Crustini

And the finale: Chocolate Passion Fruit Decquoise. Pistachio brittle and ice cream.
