Big J and I went out tonight to celebrate my dissertation defense. little j went out with our neighbor Ms. J after a celebratory drink (non-alcoholic, of course). We went to C & O, one of the best restaurants in C'Ville. And once again we were not disappointed. We shared two starters: grilled mushroom salad and pan fried sweetbreads with truffled celery root puree. Both extremely good. Then we shared an entree: beef tenderloin Wellington with seared fois gras and black current marsala reduction with chustnut-Yukon gold puree. Holy cow it was good. We ended the meal with the classic creme brulee, my favorite dessert. I couldn't ask for a better dinner.
