For our appetizer we both chose the Truffle Potato Leek Soup with Chive Oil. This soup was amazing, it came out nice and hot, with a side of what tasted like deep-fried potato chips. The soup was full of potato and leek goodness, the potato chips went perfectly with it! This was definitely our favorite part of the meal.
I also had a coupon for a sampler which was creamy Buffalo Mozzarella topped with vinegar and tomatoes. Ohhenry especially loved the buffalo mozzarella. It was a perfect combination that melted instantly in our mouths.
We also decided to splurge a little and ordered a drink to share. This vibrant pink drink is known as the Russian Spring ($12), which consists of russian standard vodka, raspberry liqueur, cassis, fresh lemon strawberry purée, topped with bubbles. We didn’t think the drink was anything special though.
Ohhenry chose the Blue Ribbon Cottage Pie for his main which consisted of Salt Cellar Ground Blue Ribbon Beef, peas, carrots and baked parmesan mash potato. He thought this was a good dish, but he preferred my entrée. When I gave his dish a try, I thought that it could have been better with more meat in it.
I chose the Strip Loin Roast with caramelized winter vegetables, crispy onion and au-jus. I loved this dish, the strip loin was well made, and delicious. Ohhenry tried some and loved it too. Although I would prefer the au-jus on the side instead of all over the dish. The crispy onions were really good too – they were a perfect complement to the dish. On the other hand, the mashed potatoes were disappointing, it tasted a little dry. The winter vegetables were just alright too.
We also splurged on two sides, one of which was the Lyonnaise Potatoes($7) with caramelized onions. Lyonnaise Potatoes are sliced pan-fried potatoes sautéed in butter with parsley. This side was delicious, especially with the caramelized onions.
The other side we ordered was the Steak Fries ($6) with B+B steak spice which was nothing special, but it was nice and crispy, just the way Ohhenry likes it.
For dessert we had the Espresso Pot de Crème with double chocolate biscotti, Ohhenry and I were both really full by the time dessert came. We thought the pot de creme was a bit too thick and heavy but the presentation of it was spectacular. I loved the gold bits and the foam. The biscotti was a bit too dry for my liking, and I couldn’t taste the richness of the double chocolate.
