So last night we had our first meal of the "season" at 2C Chicago, with Chef Jeff Dysart. He called the menu for the night Here Again- so yes- There Again - and lucky US!
We were joined by Kevin & Shari and Ron & Mary for a reprise of our fall group. And we dined over conversation that was all over the map including the forbidden dinner topic of religion LOL each couple being a part of "mixed marriages" and Kevin giving a morning sermon for Mother's Day at the Lutheran Church in Lincoln Square...
So here are the dishes, the wines and the menu from our terrific, tremendous, tasty 2C evening! favorite course first! pancakes! LOL - with Foie gras!
A wonderful night of warm, cozy conversations with dear friends and the same warm welcoming from Chef Jeff that we have come to know and love... every time we come home to our own 2C Phil says to me "what a great guy" and I always agree with him. It is a pleasure to dine with him on both the personal and professional level.
Tonight Tim Grimm in concert - with Phil's folkies group- just down the street at Wishbone.... we are signed up to do a trip with Tim next summer to Scotland (focus on local music) and are looking forward to seeing him tonight. Then three nights out with friends/family at Oceanique and Jeong and Cafe Marbella.... so stay tuned.
