Other than another couple, Jim and I are the only guests. 'Tis very quiet. So quiet that the dining room looked too lonely to eat in last night. We opted to dine in the pub for a friendlier and warmer atmosphere.
First we negotiated with Tom the waiter: we'll trade our deserts for an extra appetizer. No problem. So we ordered. Jim started with a Crayfish Risotto: red sorrel, blue cheese powder and XO piperada (spanish tomato base sauce). I had the Black Truffle Ravioli: smoked walnuts, brussel leaves, green peppercorn in a foie gras sauce (nine time reduced which I cleaned up with the fresh whole wheat bread). And we shared our desert trade off which was the Roasted Quebec Foie Gras: pain perdu, freeze dried berries with a white cacao cloud. Oh, la, la.
Did I forget the wine? Morse Code Shiraz. We had selected another Shiraz but the message got blurred and this is the red we got... Hhmmm, not as fun a wine experience as the Stone Road Grill. Quel dommage.
Jim had the winner! 24hr Braised Lamb Bolognese: home made garganelli pasta, black truffle with big chunks of reggiano. Yum! I was quite delighted with mine although I couldn't resist taking jabs at Jimmy's garganelli! I had the Coleman Farm Black Angus Faux Filet: fingerling dauphinoise, roated cippolline (pearl onions) with a sauce perigueux. Très riche et bon.
We waddled back to our room. Jimmy crawled into bed and I went up to the walk to watch the night.
