For dinner, I had the amazing pork cheeks with sauerkraut, bacon, fingerling potatoes, creme fraiche, apple puree and a few other goodies.Mr. F had the short ribs with whole grain mustard, but I wasn't able to get a picture before he dug in. They were even better than my pork cheeks and also had stunning presentation!
To celebrate our date night, we had a little Walla Walla in Chicago. We enjoyed the K Vinters Syrah called, "the Beautiful" after Charles Smith's wife. The aromatic nose was delightful especially with the 5% Viognier. On the palate, it represented Walla Walla Valley fruit in a nostalgic and delectable way.
Our dessert was out of this world.Our waiter recommended the Warm Walnut Brownie and we melted instantly when we tasted this masterpiece. There was coffee ice cream, cranberry gelatin, and carmel de leche, accompanying the cocoa nibs brownies, interspersed with chocolate walnut brittle. We were so stuffed and happy that we saved some for breakfast tomorrow!
