Cute sheep! I have a thing for barnyard animals. Even bald ones.
Then we both got a white fish in a light green herb broth. It tasted super buttery and creamy, but it was fairly small, so not at all overwhelming. The next thing I got was an amazing beef dish. So tender and perfectly pink. Peter had lamb something that he liked a lot (see our lamby friends above).
Then we decided to get cheese. There were two types of cheddar and two types of blue cheeses, served with honey and that amazing pickled celery I mentioned last week. I can still imagine the taste of it perfectly.
For dessert, Peter got an amazing looking coffee brownie with ice cream, and I got a pineapple and sorbet combination. I usually hate fruit desserts. They seem fake to me (hello -- fruit is a breakfast food), but these pineapples were spiced with cinnamon and some other yummy things I couldn't identify. But it was very, very good. (Though I must say, how local are pineapples in April, Dan Barber?)
All in all, it was probably the best celebration spot we've ever been to. Fantastic from start to finish.
