TMI Tuesday - Fine Dining

I have succumbed to blogging about something a little different after reading about all your food choices. Maybe this TMI Tuesday will become a tradition. (plus this saves me another day before I have to blog about current affairs, lol)


You are having dinner at the best restaurant you can imagine. Do not concern yourself with over-eating, or other restrictions. We want to know what you like best. What will you have for:

1. Before dinner wine, aperitif, or cocktail? Cocktail something seasonal and in a martini glass. French Vanilla Swirl perhaps if I was going with a favorite

2: Appetizer? These incredible Vietnamese Crepes with Duck, Fresh Vegetables, and a Savory Sauce. I've only had them at one incredibly authentic place and I dream about them constantly.

However if this is a meal where we share appetizers than I will also be having Mini Elvis Burgers from Jackie's. Who doesn't love a mini burger and this one has an incredible pimento topping that is unparalleled.

3. Soup? Sui Mono from my favorite Teppanyaki restaurant. The mushrooms are sliced so think and the soup has delicate onions in the bottom. The warmth resonates from inside of you as you eat it.

4. Salad? Possibly a salad with Ginger dressing because of the soup I just ate. But if courses were unrelated I would like a salad with fresh strawberries, cucumbers, peppers, dark salad greens, feta, and a balsamic reduction.

5. Wine or other beverage with dinner? With Dinner I will switch to a refreshing white wine, something light with a clean finish. Although before the first bite I often sip water to cleanse my palette.

6. Entree? Since we are without restrictions I am going to have a filet cooked to a perfect medium rare and fresh maine lobster that is cracked and served with melted butter. I'd prefer it from the best family owned Steak House in Eastport, Lewne's.

7. Side Dishes? Mushroom risotto with peas(Although I'd substitute risotto cakes from Ale Wife) and fresh asparagus with lemon

8. Dessert? This is such a tough choice for me, because I love dessert so much. Currently I think it would include Smith Island Cake (but I can't choose a flavor) or The Coconut Bomb from the Kentmor it's not on the menu, but it's the owner's specialty, or perhaps I would make it a trio and add Pie on a Stick from the Blonde Giraffe. That would definitely be a great trio: Smith Island Cake, Coconut Bomb, and Pie on a Stick.

9. After dinner drink? The after dinner drink is always such a nice refreshing finish to the meal. Perhaps I would have some aged Grand Marnier or Nut and Berries.

10. Which 3 people would you invite to dinner: (must be famous, well-known, living or dead, not fictional)

- For sex appeal: Gerard Butler (Gerald & Gertie: A Love Story waiting to happen)

- For great conversation: Tom Collichio (He's my favorite, voice on Top Chef and we have to talk about the food. Hopefully he suggests a nice wine pairing.)

- Because you detest them: Detest is such a strong word, but Sarah Palin. Maybe with food in her mouth the sound of her voice won't make me flitch.

Bonus: Your lover brings you breakfast in bed. What’s on the tray?

————- Waffles preferably with fresh berries and warm butter and fresh squeezed juice.
