So on the menu... we both wanted the soft cooked egg, which was accompanied with veal sweetbreads, and other delectable little items, but they were all out of it, which was a bit disappointing. So instead, Marc got the cauliflower soup, and I got the pasta with butternut squash and ricotta. Mine was good, but seemed almost like a glorified mac and cheese. But as Marc put it, he "could never get that texture out of mac and cheese." He definitely won the point for the appetizer.
Main course, I got the Berkshire pork belly (of course, why wouldn't you get pork belly, as long as its on the menu), and Marc got the braised beef. I definitely won that round... pork belly is just... so... good. Perfectly crisp top layer, with a succulent and tender base.
Last, for dessert, Marc let me pick both. So we got a chocolate fondant, and one of my favorite desserts, a vanilla creme brulee. Both were impeccable.
Usually I can't help but spend a lot more time writing about food, but I'm feeling like I need to get to sleep early tonight... long day tomorrow. So, with that, I bid adieu. Goodnight!
Here we go, Day 170: https://ia700800.us.archive.org/11/items/Improv13112/1_31_122_46Pm.mp3
