Tom from Miami :

"This tasting menu includes some of our most satisfying and indulgent dishes. We begin with a greeting from our host McKenzie, a glass of red paired with our first course, and a sophisticated table set with Spicy Buttered Pecans & Candied Peppered Walnuts.

While the first entrée is being prepared, you can enjoy our indulgent, Curried-Peanut Roasted-Tomato soup topped with Sage Crostini.

Our first course is a Sweet Potato Gnocchi in a Browned Butter Sauce sprinkled with Chestnuts & Crisp Sage, which captures the flavors of autumn perfectly.

We follow with a small Intermezzo of Citrus Sorbet to cleanse the palate.

Our second main course is Shrimp Étouffée, a viscerally satisfying dish flavored with the Holy Trinity of Cajun cuisine, held by a pork based roux, & served with herbed rice.

Our last entrée is a slow cooked Braised Beef Short Rib atop a mound of Horseradish Yukon Mash and accented with micro greens & au jus.

Finally, for dessert, we wanted to go over the top, so I’ve prepared a Bourbon Gelato, served with a Buttermilk Gala Apple Fritter.

When booked, this menu can be expected. However I always like to test new dishes when I have a chance, and you may find an exciting addition or two. Please advise us of any food allergies or dietary restrictions so that we may accommodate. We look forward to meeting new friends and sharing a memorable meal."
