Of course, I eyed the menu (and salivated) for a full week before we even went. I'm a sucker for seafood, so the Seared Diver Scallops with Brussels Sprouts, Bacon & Honey Crisp Apples was the easy appetizer choice. Although the scallops were a bit thin, they were seared to perfection. The honey crisp apples really brightened the whole dish and brought a nice pop of fresh flavor. Where were the Brussels sprouts? Seriously. I hardly tasted them at all.
Also, the bacon didn't really add anything to the plate. Next time, hold the bacon and give me more Brussels sprouts! (If you can't tell, I'm enamored with Brussels sprouts lately.)
Either way, I should have ordered Nina's Hanger Steak with Brandied Cherries. That shit was so scrumptious. Granted, I felt like a fat whale after eating only a few bites (steak is way too heavy for lunch), but I was a happy fat whale. It was juicy, tender and not overcooked. I literally melted into my seat with each bite and probably sounded fairly close to Sally in the famous When Harry Met Sally dessert eating scene.
