Heidi's 2.0 redux

Great meal Sat night at Heidi's. I started with the beet 2.0 salad which I really love (.Beets and feta, “24 Karat” carrot buttons and pickled shallot sauce) So many flavors going on. I opend a bottle of 91 Chateau Montelena (it had been sitting in my cellar since release). It was a great bottle (96pts). The chef then sent us the "bennie" Eggless Benedict with huitlacoche and truffle. They also poured us a glass chenin blanc to go with this course. The wine was from India of all places but was very nice and matched well with the "bennie". I then had the Fillet special and my wife ha dht Salmon Cassoulet. We both loved our dishes. We had a side of the spinach gratin to go with the entrees. The Cab and the beef were a match made in heaven. For dessert we had the Frozen yuzu and sesame soufflé with candied kumquats and white chocolate and Nitro chocolate mousse with roasted marshmallow, peanut butter bliss and honey. The Nitro is a favorite of mine. It was a really incredible evening. If you have not been yet, I really urge you to check it out. There are very few restos of this caliber in our town. If we want to have good food, we need to support them. Next week . . . Travail. I hate waiting so it should be interesting.
