I was just looking at that thread the other day! Great sounding chili recipes there.

Nice meals everybody! I spent too much time dealing with the garden veggies and a friend came over because gf figured we should renovate the guest bathroom right away. I guess we don't have enough to do
We ordered pizza at 8:30

Last night I had a great meal to make up for my first night in Savannah. I went to a restaurant that I had been to a few years ago, and ordered the 'chef's table' with wine flights. I will bore you with pictures.

First was a plate of warm, seeded bread, served with shredded asiago, pepper & oil. I tried not to eat too much so I could save room for the meal, but a girl's only so strong.

First wine was a prosecco.

Next came a ramekin with a poached egg, topped with a mousseline of day scallops, gratineed and topped with capers.

Wine for the next course was a beautifully oaked chardonnay.

Black rice canelle, grilled shrimp (great char), with an asparagus & dandelion puree, cilantro garnish.

The Schug Pinot Noir that came next was my favorite.
It was paired to braised pork cheek over Carolina Gold rice grits. The cheek was braised in Thai flavors with just a bit of heat at the end. This was one of my favorite dishes of the night.

When the Sauternes arrived, I had a hunch what was coming next!
Seared fois gras with fennel ice cream. The meat pan had been deglazed with a caramel, and that was served as the sauce. My other favorite of the night!

Next up - a Zinfndel. This went with a pair of frenched baby lamb chops, potato gratined with goat cheese, grilled asparagus and a demi glass.

Eventually we got to dessert, served with framboise.

Baked Alaska with fresh berries and two sauces; a creme anglais and a caramel. This need two pictures - one outside and one inside.

Final bill - dinner, wine, tax, tip, parking $200 for one person!

Sounds outstanding, Silversage. An experience like that doesn't come along often.

Wow, Silversage, that all sounds and looks amazing! And at only $200, I think you got a bargain! Glad you got to make up for the lousy food the first day.

SS, I would dearly love to have that dinner experience and for me it would be worth the price. Thanks for including that info.
Can you tell us the name of the place in case I ever get back to lovely Savannah?

I love places with tasting menus! And $200 for an occasional indulgence isn't all that much. I do the same thing myself a few times a year.
