We spent the weekend in the city and ate ourselves silly. Saturday for dinner we ate at Postrio. It was perfect. Great service, table out of the way of traffic and the food . . . Prawns on spinach and a tomato jam?? it was lovely. DH had oysters with the perfect Thai vinegar dipping sauce. The between course sorbet was carrot lime, oh my word. Then we ( we share food ) had chicken with Indian spices on a killer chutney, quail with Manila clams. We shared a carmel cheesecake cannolonni sp? that was heaven.
Sunday night we were at Cortez with friends. What a beautiful place. We shared 8 dishes, each better than the last one: lamb loin, foie gras, prawns, crab cakes, duck breast, chicken breast, fries, and scallops. Then of course we had dessert, sorbets, beingets, and the peanutbutter chocolate cake. Service was perfect. I don't know the cost of these places, it was my birthday and I didn't see the final bills.
I know DH spent big bucks Saturday, the wine was $135. But he and I felt it was well worth the total.
It will be hard tonight eating normal everyday food.
