I overate hella much last Thursday. To say I fell off my dieting bandwagon would be an understatement. My dad took me to a restaurant for my birthday and I gorged myself so much that I honestly felt a bit physically ill! :lol:

Ame Restaurant in the St. Regis hotel in the city; recently earned one Michelin star in their 2012 guide

What'd I have?

App #1

Ceviche of Amberjack
with Avocado, Ruby Grapefruit, Charred Fresno Chili and Lime Salt
[not mentioned on the menu but it also had very small tapioca pearls that at first I mistook for caviar. Decent but nothing to write home about]

App #2

Raviolo of Pheasant with Petit Ragout of Sweetbreads,
Chanterelles and Umbrian Summer Truffles
[absolutely amazing and delicious!]



Entree

Grilled Brandt Family Ranch NY Strip Steak
with Goat Cheese and Eggplant “Lasagna”,
Basil Scented Squash Puree and Romesco Sauce
[also very nom nom]




Dessert #1 (mine)

Stone Fruit Pie with Noyau Ice Cream and Caramel Sauce
[Today's fruit was peaches. Totally tasty, wanted a lot more]





Dessert #2 (shared with my dad)

Assortment of Domestic Artisan Cheeses with Seasonal Condiments
[very yummy!! From right-to-left: sheep's milk hard cheese; cow milk bleu cheese; cow milk camembert-style cheese. Sheep's milk cheese accompanied with toasted, spicy pecans. Bleu accompanied by fig jam. Camembert with apple slices. All of 'em served with thin toast point things]





Dad's dessert

Buttermilk Panna Cotta
with Summer Berries and Raspberry Marshmallows
[I tried a bite and it was every bit as good as mine, but I know he likes panna cotta's so I let him nom it ;)]

Om noms Saturday night were incredible. This was the final celebratory food nomming for my b-day: mom took me to Fleur de Lys in the city. Felt wrong to take pics there so y'all will have to make do with descriptions

Amuse bouche:

Cream of artichoke soup with shaved carrots, microthin slice of spec-ham and a tiny drop of pea puree in a soup spoon

Appetizer:

BAEKEOFFE OF ESCARGOTS & TRUFFLES
Accented with a garlic & basil broth
Parsley salad and homemade brioche “snail”

Basically, escargot & truffle broth/soup with garlic & basic in a small earthenware/ceramic pot, lidded, and then the edges of the lid were sealed with puff pastry, and baked. Served with salad & brioche "snail" which at first I mistook for a mushroom, it was that artistically prepared.

Fish:

JUMBO LOUISIANA PRAWNS
Cream of artichoke, citrus salad, porcini oil, served with a tangerine sauce

Very large butterflied prawn in the above sauces. My mom had toasted bacon brioche served with her fish course, but since she doesn't eat bacon I got all those noms to myself, and sopped up all the delicious awesome wonderfulness :drool:

Meat:

SEARED FILET MIGNON WITH A LOBSTER TRUFFLED
MAC & CHEESE “EN BRIOCHE”
Accented with a red wine, shallot, thyme bordelaise sauce


Yea, it was exactly as awesome as that sounds. "En brioche" means that the lobster mac & cheese were cooked inside a brioche pastry shell that formed the miniature serving "bowl" for the mac & cheese

Cheese:

ASSORTMENT OF ARTISANAL CHEESES
Served with a rustic almond & apricot bread


YUMMY. Also came with a small bowl of mixed nuts & dried fruit drizzled in honey.


Dessert 1:

CHOCOLATE SOUFFLE
Served with cherry and Kirsch ice cream

Ice cream was fantastic, while the souffle with chocolate creme anglaise... not so much. Thankfully, my failure at ordering a dessert wasn't the end of the meal


As my mom had pre-warned 'em that it was for my b-day, we also got:


Dessert 2:

Raspberry mousse cake with a cylindrical tuile, white chocolate "happy birthday me" thingy and one more thing that I don't recall (omnomnom)


Dessert 3

Assortment of petit fours: chocolate truffle rolled in nuts, pistachio mirangue, mini custard tart with raspberries, mini chocolate tart with nuts, etc etc etc.

Had an italian beef dip at Portillo's last night, so bomb. I'm sure incredibly unhealthy but who cares

Just released this video yesterday. Grilled Tuscan-Style Flatbread with Arugula, Garlic-Scented Chicken, Roasted Red Peppers, Manchego Cheese, and Crispy Shallots. My friend Minh is a really great cook and this tasted amazing; I highly recommend trying it out. Going to record another recipe on Monday, will make sure the audio is straightened out for the next one!
