The hotel's on-site restaurant.
|Shrimp and Crab Ceviche|
|Cornbread & Jalapeno Cheese Bread|
Both came out piping hot and delicious. The cornbread was perfection it was buttery, savory and sweet. The Jalapeno Cheese bread you could really taste the cheese and it definitely had a nice kick in the back of your throat.
|Hog Island Oysters w/ Cocktail sauce, Lemon Granita and Hogwash|
SERIOUSLY GOOD. I would expect no less from Hog Island.
|Pork belly and Quail Egg w/ Fried Fingerling potatoes and Frisse Salad|
This dish was definitely the star dish of the evening. The fried pork belly was melt in your mouth good and the soft boiled quail egg was divine.
I'm super obsessed with soft boiled eggs. Don't ask why it's just delicious. Crack a soft boiled egg over anything and it's instantaneously a 100 times better!
|Grilled Shrimp Brie Orrichetta Pasta|
This I thought was just ok.. honestly I felt like I could have made this at home. Pass.
|Pork w/ Foie Gras, Cornbread Stuffing and Brussels Sprouts|
This dish was good but a bit too rich and the flavors kind of melded together so they weren't very distinct. Halfway through I think the hubs palette went kind of numb and said everything tasted the same.
|Coconut Cream Brulee, Caramel Popcorn, Snicker doodles and Lilac Sorbet|
Haha we're city folk k'? A fireplace is REALLY exciting for us. I mean my parents house has a fireplace but I don't think it's ever been lit. NOT EVEN ONCE.
I couldn't help but yell "FIRE FIRE FIRE" after the hubs lit it up. AHAHAHA. You get a cookie if you can tell me where that's from :p
Then I spent 10 min walking around our hotel room trying to find pieces of paper that I could throw into the fireplace. (I tossed in a bunch of shopping receipts.. better the hubs doesn't see them anyways AHAHA jkjkjk)
So yeah.. we've come to the conclusion that perhaps I'm a bit of a pyromaniac so in the future when we do decide to move to the suburbs it's probably best that our home doesn't have a fireplace.
After the whole fire ordeal this conversation ensued.
The hubs: Honey will you grab my toiletry bag from the luggage
Me: *Rummaging around in luggage*
Me: What is this?
The hubs: *smirking*
The hubs: I don't know, what is that?
Me: WHAT IS THIS? IS IT YOURS?
The hubs: I have no ideaMe: WHAT IS THISSSSSSSSSS?!?!?!?!
The hubs: UHHH why don't you open it.
