Time Out for Amuse Bouche!

Our most expensive night out EVER! 😉

Malachy got to spend the night at PoPo’s, so Shien and I were able to go out for an early anniversary dinner! 😉  It’s always awesome to know that Malachy is okay with us going on a date. 🙂  Originally the only reservation Shien could get at Wylie Dufresne’s, WD-50, was 10:30pm!  I called at around 3 to see if anything opened up.  At first, the Maitre D told me she had something at 10pm, but then she said there was an opening at 7pm!  That was AWESOME, because we didn’t want to start a 12-course meal at 10:30pm.

Besides being the most expensive meal (FOUR Franklins! 😉 ) we ever had, it was definitely the most entertaining.  Shien said it was like going to an amusement park.  Every dish that came out was another adventure into the unknown, and they all could be eaten in one or two bites!  It was like eating someone’s science experiments.

The one that was the most fun was the Everything bagel, smoked salmons threads, and crispy cream cheese. When it came, it looked like a baby miniature everything bagel!  It was actually made out of ice cream with sesame and poppy seeds spread on top!  On the side was salmon that was dried to an almost powder-like consistency and the cream cheese was like a cold thin film!  When you put everything together, it indeed tasted like an everything bagel!  YUMMY!  Two of my other favorites were the scrambled egg ravioli and the cold fried chicken, buttermilk-ricotta, tabasco and caviar. I wasn’t a huge fan of the caviar, but everything else was really tasty!  All of the dessert was really tasty.  I actually wasn’t close to full until I had all of the desserts! 😉

When we got home, we watched Sherlock Holmes, but I kept nodding off.  Still, it was a great night out!  Married for 8 years and together for 17 years to the most amazing woman!  WOW!  I am truly truly blessed! 🙂
