The palate cleanser was a champagne sorbet. It was extremely light and tasty.

The desserts were pecan flan with caramel sauce and the girls split some cheesecake.

Now that we are home we are going to have my favorite birthday cake made by the loving hands of Bugs (Kate). Then we will likely fall into a coma until tomorrow.
that's an awesome looking plate, alix! beet and chardonnay sauce sounds heavenly to me, too. i can't help but notice how much smaller food portions are these days of artistic plating, than when i was still dining out. still, GORGEOUS!! i'm green with envy....

When you have 5 courses the portions NEED to be smaller. I thoroughly enjoyed dinner. I'd go there again in a minute...provided we win some money somewhere.
