I always love going to restaurants where the plates come out looking colorful and beautiful, almost like art. Sushi restaurants typically do this kind of thing well. Tonight, my wife and I went with some friends to a restaurant in Minneapolis called Heidi's. I don't normally snap photos of meals when I eat out, but I couldn't resist in this case. These plates were absolutely stunning. It was almost a shame to eat them.
Clockwise from top left: spring rolls, mushroom pappardelle, scallops with celery root puree, braised lamb shank, peanut butter cream filled doughnut, tuna tartar, pickled beef tongue, and beet sorbet.
There were nine courses altogether, each paired with a different wine (one course was paired with beer). I forgot to take a photo of one of the fish courses.
