Last night Brad and I had the pleasure of joining the Stein's for dinner at Le Fou Frog in the City Market. Absolutely the best meal we have eaten in Kansas City, hands down! Seriously, check it out. Not a mexican priced dinner by any means, but totally worth the Benjamin's. 5 courses, champagne, wine and port (decision on that following). A 3 1/2 hour dinner, full of excitement, delicious flavors and laughter. This was a night we will always remember!!!!!
1st course - cleansing dish: totally interesting bit of chicken liver something w/ a pickle inside. Weird.
2nd course - appetizers and bread. We shared escargot, cheese, and shrimp gruyere pastry puff
3rd course - soup/ salad: lobster bisque for me, manhattan clam chowder for Brad and a bite of our friends warm fig and goat cheese salad.
4th course - entre: Brad had rack of lamb, seasoned with fresh herbs, horseradish and mustard with a side of ratatouille. I had Branzini on a bed of crab and goat cheese risotto (amazing!). Also got to try bites of our friends dishes, braised short ribs and Sea Bass.
5th course: dessert! - Brad and I shared Creme Brulle, also having a few bites of other pastry goodness.
As if we were not full enough from wine, champagne and food... next was the after dinner drink on the house. First taste of Port Wine - very strong, indeed! Kind of reminds me of Slivovitza in a way less painful way.
Ater that amazing meal we are ready to take on making all kinds of new dishes. The at home lamb interpretation was awesome! Waiting for the crab goat cheese risotto day : )
