We had a lovely dinner at Solé tonight. We went because they had a special Celebration of the Sea menu and we both love seafood.
Neil had a crab cake appetizer, and the Thai Seafood Bake (little neck clams, mussels, scallops, shrimp, sticky rice croquettes and baby bok choy, steamed in a banana leaf with a spicy lemon grass and lime leaf broth). I had a crab tower appetizer, and the Baked Icelandic scampi tails (sweet potato, banana bread and pecan hash, saffron and vanilla bean cream, steamed asparagus and blueberry reduction).
For dessert, we split a lemon and poppyseed cheesecake with a raspberry coulis.
We're restaurant-testing, you see. We have to decide where to take Michele for dinner next friday.
Well, it's a good theory anyway.
