Every time I see a movie or eat at a restaurant I immediately think, "oooo, I can't wait to write this up!" Little do I remember the fact tht the evening goes on and that snuggling up with a warm kitty or loving boyfriend is far more nourishing than trying to make my computer love me back. This past weekend was an adjective that has not been invented yet which far outshines "amazing". What made it so awesome, you ask? Well, here comes a marathon:
Alice in Wonderland
Andy and I have deemed this restaurant our #1 fancy date night option. If you're going uber-fancy, however, the Crown and Goose still tops the list. La Costa is just a little cheaper but the quality is undeniable. Andy had a cocoa rubbed ribeye over yukon mashers with roasted carrots and a parsnip puree while I chose the pan seared chicken breast with a cheddar dijon yukon potato gratin, broccolini, and a mango port reduction. Let's start with the steak: it is like eating beautifully embroidered silk. The cocoa kisses your palate gently as the steak literally melts in your mouth and the two flavors blend into this incredible, indescribably purity. Even the gristle is mouth-watering. My chicken was nothing to sneeze at, though! I could bathe and eat my way out of the port mango reduction. The seasoning on the chicken was just a tad too coarse for me, but the cut and cooking was perfect. Seriously, save your pennies and check this place out!
