We went to Morimoto's with my brother and his wife in Philly, and got the tasting menu. Cost me over $500 for 4 of us, but so worth it. We sat up at the counter, and Morimoto himself was cooking!

Thanks, CakePoet. I posted my recipe here.

If you are unable to find the ingredients where you live, let me know. Maybe we can come up with some suitable substitutions.

Steve: that will be made, when my friend come over, because he live not far from one of the best chili shops here, how ever I will see if the food festival has any chilis this year.

Silversage, what an amazing dinner! Nice antidote to your first day there.

Thank you Kay, CG, and kgirl. Dry scallops and a hot CI pan with just the lightest coat of oil, and they let me know when they're seared and ready to flip.

Silversage, what an elegant and delicious looking meal!

I'll add my "lovely dinner" comment about your dinner, too, SS. I'm very happy that the food didn't slid off of your plates, seeing as how it was sideways and all.

I have the same problem with photos, on occasion. Himself said it's how I hold my camera. I suppose there's a trick there someone, but I'm still deleting and re-shooting photos often.

salt and pepper, I thought you were kidding about a Walleye pie! That's...interesting. It might look silly to me, but I bet it tasted great.

Can you tell us the name of the place in case I ever get back to lovely Savannah?

It's called the Sapphire Grill. If you are familiar with Savannah, it's 2 doors down from Paula Deen's place. Funny thing; when we were there a few years ago, Deen's had a line down the block and around the corner to get in. We had to elbow our way through that line to get into the Sapphire. This time, her place wasn't busy at all.

The Sapphire Grill

When we were there last time, there was a young woman Chef d' Cuisine named Brandy. She came out to greet us after the meal. Last night I learned that she is no longer there - she is now the Executive Chef at another local restaurant, Local Eleven-10. Guess where I'm going tomorrow night!

That reminds me - it happened to me last week when I took photos in portrait rather than landscape mode (which I don't do often). I opened them in a photo editor and saved them to a different file and it posted correctly.
