so on the second night after our return we headed to goosefoot to see Chris & Nina and check out some new courses-
here is the report... my favorite new course is the gnocchi with summer truffles - oh so very yummy!
here is the menu and then the food "in order of appearance" (LOL)
the amuse- a wonderful mushroom soup-
the scallop course-
the white we chose for the beginning wine- we also had a 2005 Louise from DDO which we decanted so I didn't get a pic of that bottle- but the wine was very nice with the later courses-
the custardy eggy preserved garlic and shrimp course-
a new hearty soup - creamy tomato with couscous and other gems hidden in the velvety soup-
the tuna course-
the aforementioned gnocchi-
meat- as good as always!
the Roquefort course with macaron- excellent counterpoint to each other with the sweet contrasting with the pungent and salty blue of the cheese...
a new palate cleanser of watermelon replaces the yuzu and beet juice of past menus-
a new fabulous dessert peaches and cream - this was one of my all time favorite dessert courses at goosefoot-
chocolate and crunch- Phil is a happy guy!
the finale of chocolate dipped gooseberry-
so the changes were good ones and it is nice to get a chance to see Chris express his artistry in new ways... goosefoot is a neighborhood favorite for us- we are lucky to be only 5-7 minutes away!
so next week is a week of catching up with things around the house and preparing for both a trip to Michigan (top of the lower peninsula) to see CBGB and a DART trip with TB to New Hampshire... time flies by - but stay tuned for more....
