Great meal at Blackfish in Conshohocken

Had another great byob meal recently at Blackfish in Conshohocken PA, which remains my favorite Philly area restaurant. It was another one of their Tuesday night $45 four-course dinners focused around a single ingredient, this time CRAB. I fear my descriptive powers fail me in the face of such wonderful cuisine, so here are a few photos.

~Dungeness crab in Kombu broth with a 63-degree egg (cooked at 63C to a unique consistency)

~Galette de crab "George Perrier" (a tribute to Chip Roman's mentor, it is his take on George's signature dish)

~Veal Oscar with jumbo king crab, Béarnaise sauce and trumpet mushrooms

~Manjari (a citrus-flavored chocolate from Madagascar) pot de creme with preserved orange segment

~Cheese plate (extra $) with Amazing Acres goat cheese, Manchego, drops of 100 year old sherry vinegar and beet membrillo paste
