It was leftovers here. Repeat of the Salisbury steak and mashed taters with a side salad. I found a new blue cheese vinagrette dressing that I really like!

I could give up chocolate but I'm no quitter!

The food was excellent, although it did seem a little Iron Chefy. I guess that's to be expected. Portion sizes were also fairly decent, compared to similar places we've been to.

From top to bottom:

1. Grilled Foie Gras appetizer with forbidden rice, celery root, apricot, pistachio

2. Star Prairie Trout, with roasted cauliflower, gremolata, olives, brown butter

3. Roasted Duck Breast, sprouted buckwheat, winter radish, blood orange, foie gras sausage

I also had a real nice side of grilled wild mushrooms.

Iron Chefy or not, those plates look delicious and beautiful! When I glanced over the menu, the trout was what caught my eye. Looks like one of you was hooked too.

Gosh, Steve, those plates look so impressive. All I had was potato-leek-cauliflower soup.

Joey, those beignets look wonderful! I could sure go for one right now with my coffee.

Steve - your dinner pics are mouthwatering. Glad to read the good review.
