Heavenly Eleven

We so enjoyed our lunch at Murray Circle that when My Beloved was planning our 11th anniversary celebration, he made a reservation there for dinner.

At dinner, they have an intriguing menu, a triptych from which you are encouraged to choose one dish from each of three sides of the menu. I chose green garlic vichyssoise; paper-thin slices of baby abalone with compressed peaches
, crisped prosciutto, vadouvan aioli; and lamb done three ways. Each plate is smallish so you can try all three, but we were still too full for dessert when push came to shove. We smiled and waved away the dessert menu, settling instead for a simple cup of coffee.

A little bird must have told them it was our anniversary (or perhaps it was the prosecco with which we toasted each other that tipped them off) and service like this can't be denied. They brought us a plate of little cubes of peach jelly, chocolate-covered and sugar-dusted macadamia nuts, and housemade caramel corn for dessert, complete with a thin chocolate tuile inscribed with anniversary wishes. All in all, it made for a celestial celebration.

Rev. Biggles, well, I ate lamb three ways - isn't that good enough?

Cookiecrumb, thanks and, yes, he's the best.

Nancy, thank you for the kind words. We feel blessed, even tho' we aren't religious.

Janie, thanks, Kiddo, but we can't begin to catch up to you and Jack!
