Winterland - Happy Hour Redux ...or, Play It Again, Sam

Cynsa | Jul 15, 2006 11:21 AM

-The last night approaches. Ten 'hounds met on Friday at 5:30 pm for a round of drinks and the bar menu at Winterland. Saturday is closing night.
-We split into two tables and separate tabs. Knowing we'd not have another opportunity, we abandoned restraint on our appetites for the Octopus Carpaccio, Poached Organic Egg, Shishito Peppers, Veal Tripe, Grilled Sardines, Shortribs, Prawn Ceviche, Carmelized Brioche, and Chocolate Cake...
Lustau Jarana sherry, Waimea Bay Pale Ale, I lost my Necktie, Can I borrow a Pen? Our tab for 5: $157.29 includes tip.
-If swooning is permitted..., we bantered cooking techniques for the Carmelized Brioche...can this be duplicated at home - for posterity? Little wonder that every mention on this Board regales this dessert. It has it all - warm, creamy French toast (well, it was Bastille Day, afterall).
-It's chocolate...
-Veal Tripe in cazelua, best value $7; wafting smokiness, chorizo & serrano jamon
-Shortribs in Chimay with wheatberries; every morsel consummed and debated
-Prawn Ceviche; tasting of the sea - gazpacho, avocado, tomato
-Grilled Sardines; with Asian pear(nashi)
and previous faves:
-Shishito Peppers
-Organic Poached Egg
-Octopus Carpaccio

It's a fond farewell...until the Chowhound Dinner on Saturday, August 26...
