 Fennel Soup

Fennel Soup

 

Notes of white pepper , lemon, and olive oil,

The goat cheese cuts the tartness or I should say acidity

The broth is I think a vegitable base with cream

To me this only needs shaved fennel in it

 

 

 


 Braised Short rib over cheese potato cake & Mizuna Green, farm fresh egg, shaved fresh horseradish, and House made chiimichurri 

Braised Short rib over cheese potato cake & Mizuna Green, farm fresh egg, shaved fresh horseradish, and House made chiimichurri 

The greens are arugula and other fields greens

The potatos are tender and soft. They are mixed with olive, bell pepper and onion

The ribs are really tender with the meat failing off. The meat is meat foreword taste with it being tender no bone or gristle. It does have fat though.

The egg is cooked over easy but still crisp on the outside edges and pairs so well with the jue

The grated fresh horseradish dose bring a great flavor to the Ritchie’s of the meat and to me could use more.

The chimicurei really does nothing to this dish and to me a wast

 


 Persimmon Pudding (English Style) with Caramel sauce, candied pecans and house-made Earl Gray ice cream

Persimmon Pudding (English Style) with Caramel sauce, candied pecans and house-made Earl Gray ice cream

This pudding is very most and very flavorful but not of the persimmon. It’s somewhat lost with the other flavor combination. 

The caramel sauce is slightly tart and not really smooth but yet very rich and flavorful of to me  turbinado Sugar instead of regular sugar. 

The pecans are not sweet and not covered in sugar in anyway. 

Other The The pudding the ste Ice Cream does steal the dish. 

This is not your normal Earl Gray ice cream, there is not much flavor of the bergamot but does have all the other components of the tea including loose leaf throughout. 

The flavor is more of the black tea and the sweet cream but there is a unique flavor in this that is in the back of the pallet when eating this.
