There was a very fine duck trio (breast, confit, sausage), but it was upstaged by an amazing pinot noir. I don’t recall ever having that feeling before.
I managed to get three bottles of that Pinot Noir, and we had one of them tonight for our meta-anniversary. Lovely wine. (Hirsch Vineyards, The Bohan Dillon Pinot Noir 2007)
- “cowboy steak”, teriyaki marinade, grilled
- risotto Milanese
- Boston lettuce, white balsamic vinaigrette
- Ruhlman’s dinner rolls
- Clotilde’s caramel chocolate torte
That tart is nice. It's simple, too: a blind-baked crust, a layer of caramel, and a layer of ganache. Piece of cake, bjt lovely.
