When I go home for a couple of weeks to visit Norman, I have decided that since we won't have to pay for a sitter, we are going ALL out (hear me Norman??) on a date night. Nice, elegant restaurant... dressing up in a suit for him and a new dress for me... *sigh* Well, I've been searching for the perfect atmosphere...and I found it. The perfect atmosphere that is...
Looks great right? It's actually one of the top restaurants in the nation. So I was getting all excited...Then I looked at the menu...
Here is a sampling of the first course...
Beet Fantasia: Three Varieties of Roasted Beets, Beet Mousse and Citrus Salsa
A Tin of Sin: American Ossetra Caviar with a Crab and Cucumber Rillette
Carpaccio of Herb Crusted Baby Lamb with Tabouli and Rosemary Mustard
Poached Duck Egg in Oxtail Consomme with Porcini Mushrooms and Shaved Burgundy Truffle
A Melange of Spicy Big Eye Tuna with Mango, Avocado, Crispy Shallots and Sake-Yuzu Sorbet
A Marriage of Hot and Cold Foie Gras with Ice Wine Jelly and Grilled Black Mission Figs
Okay, can I not get the atmosphere...the dress...the nice ambiance...AND grilled chicken or something...EDIBLE? Seriously... No matter where I go, no matter how elegant Foie Gras sounds, fatty liver of goose is just not my cup of tea. Forget it. YUCK.
