Fancy dining

Posted in food, restaurants at 12:20 am by wingerz

As I’ve become more comfortable in the kitchen, it takes a lot more for a restaurant to impress me, especially when it’s a somewhat nice restaurant. Today I walked away from David Burke & Donatella thoroughly impressed after a filling lunch (they have $24 and $35 prix fixe menus for lunch, possibly only on Sundays but I’m not sure). Ellen, Jen, and I shared an assortment of appetizers, entrees, and desserts. Some of the highlights:

  • Titanic french toast: A entire small loaf of given the french toast treatment
  • Beef short ribs: With a delicious mushroom sauce and a dollop of black truffle mousse
  • Chicken and Shrimp salad: Tossed with a mustardy vinagrette with a hint of horseradish

For the quality and quantity of food, it was a phenomenal deal and a great dining experience.
