en croute

[cheese dreaming]

a couple of weekends back, T and i went on a little birthday dinner date to the lovely en croute. between the cozy atmosphere, mouth-watering wine selections, amazing edibles, and stellar service, it was perfection. i had been waiting ever since they'd opened to try it out, and boy, did it supersede all expectations. 

[tasting what may be one of my favorite wines to date]

[a curious combo of umami, salty, sweet, and bitter]

[cioppino with garlic bread]

i honestly couldn't decide which entree was my favorite, but i can tell you each bite was taste bud heaven. the ambiance was near what i imagine julia and paul child would have frequented...aka the most splendid birthday treat. 

[braised short ribs]

we finished the night with the most delicious treat - caramel beignets de carnival served with espresso ice cream and fresh berries. thanks en croute for the most beautiful evening...we can't wait to come back!
