Happy birthday to me!

We're off to Restaurant Eve tonight! Oh, how exciting! I made the reservations (yes, I did) nearly two months ago... Hopefully we'll actually make it. The last time we considered Chef Cathal Armstrong's menu, Josephine ended up in the hospital and I ended up eating lime jello instead.

To consider: Monkfish liver with braised baby leeks and Iranian osetra.

Just kidding!

More likely: Sweet butter poached Maine lobster with heirloom carrots, ginger and micro-cilantro. (No matter what the pita people say, I am convinced that the dying gasps of a lobster should be butter.)

A definite: Cheese course!

The "mixologist" here is very well known. How about this? A Lemony Laurel: Roasted lemons, bay leaves, Galliano and Smirnoff citrus vodka. Yum, yummy. But I'm also sorely tempted by Eamonn's Cocktail: Yuzu, Irish red lemonade and Powers Irish whiskey.

This is the whiskey time of year.

What's the report? And what did you wear?

You should have gone upstairs afterwards to PX. One of the best bars in town- and they have the same mixologist!
