Once a month, Jason and I go out to dinner three other couples. Each month, one couple gets to choose the restaurant. It’s a really fun way to try new restaurants and keep up with friends. This month was Erin and Baha’s turn to pick the restaurant.
Erin knows the GM at Market, so she arranged for our group to enjoy a 5-course dinner! Though it was a bit pricier than I’m used to, we were allowed to bring our own wine, so that cut down on the cost tremendously. We were seated in a small private room.
Erin had made sure that I would be able to get something that I could eat for each course. I didn’t take many pictures because I sometimes feel like it’s a little awkward in big groups. But I can tell you about the courses!
First up was a piece of tuna sashimi in a ponzu sauce. Then we had a roasted red and golden beet salad with goat cheese. After that, we had a piece of cod and then it was time for the main course. Everyone else had lamb chops and I had ravioli with sauteed spinach, broccoli rabe and roasted cauliflower. Everything was delicious.
I did capture a picture of the dessert.
The waiter put three dishes of three desserts each on the table. They were chocolate cake, cheesecake with sorbet and banana cake. I dominated the cheesecake.
All in all, a fun dinner with good friends. I am so glad that we started doing this. Jason and my month is in March, so we’ll have to figure out a good place to go.
