Date night for us tonight! I usually order seafood like salmon, walleye, sea bass, halibut or scallops.
We wanted to start with the octopus dish we like but they were out of octopus! We had scallops with bacon and greens. They were nicely seared and very tasty. I had the beet salad (golden and red beets) with goat cheese, frisée and pistachios with a honey vinaigrette. He had the Cesar salad minus the anchovies. Main dish I got the salmon special (thanks to whoever mentioned getting the special) all the specials were Oktoberfest themed.
So it was salmon with pickled cabbage (rot cole anyone?), bacon and a pumpernickel crumb. Unfortunately came with creme frisch that was not on the menu, but I was able to scrape it off (pet peeve of mine, see my take about my white sauce phobia). Mrloves2learn ordered the pork chop with an apple-fig chutney which came with a side of garlic mashed potatoes. We ordered the chomaiare (sp?) pudding for dessert and they mistakenly wished us happy anniversary so our waitress played along & comped it.
