When the Chef goes above and beyond for you.

Mr CF and I attended the dinner we 'won' at a local charity auction last night.

The food was paired to wines selected from the donor's cellar, and I kid you not, dinner was amazing. We had the sort of dinner I expect in a major restaurant in a city like NYC, Las Vegas, San Francisco or Chicago. Yowza!

The Chef also knows about my food allergy and we had talked prior to the dinner about what to do about it. I told him that if there was a wine that would just be sublime with, oh, Lobster for instance, that I would like him to serve that and I would either skip the course or if he could, just substitute something else for me. And that's what he did - but he did it in such a manner that it wasn't completely obvious to everyone that mine was different.

Dinner was incredible.

We did tip the servers and the chef as well, but should we do anything else?
I do think I will write a note and send it in a thank you card.

Any better ideas?
