Birthday at WD-50
I've been traveling this last week, and I have a couple posts to add from my eating adventures in the midwest, but first I have to wish Happy Birthday to me, and rave about the excellent meal I was treated to last night at WD-50. I only got snaps of dessert, which was a chocolate mousse ribbon with lime gelato, spots of avocado, and chocolate crumbles that the waiter accurately described as "oreo dust". On top of that, the kitchen sent us a chocolate cake with candied tube and a candle inside...
Also, great foodie celeb spotting-- first, Lee Anne from Top Chef walks in with her posse, and heads straight to the kitchen to talk to the chefs. A little later, LBT asks, "where's Harold?"... and lo and behold, the winner of Top Chef showed up too!
Highlights of the dinner were a root vegetable lasagna and the steak entrees... we tried ocean trout, but it was a bit fishy... it was Monday, however... but would Tony make such excuses?
