Kiss me on my salty lips

We just had an utterly amazing anniversary meal at Applewood, on 11th Street in Park Slope.

Amuse-bouche -- uni and heirloom tomato soup

Diver scallop with bacon, red cabbage, and pea-shoot pesto -- paired with a Pinot Gris

Halibut with garlic “au jus”, bone marrow, and royal trumpet mushrooms -- paired with an Alsatian Riesling

Duck-fat poached lamb tenderloin with polenta and roasted daikon and turnips -- paired with a Rioja

Amuse-bouche -- mint ice cream on a brownie

Cheese course, with four cheeses I can't remember, but which were all fabulous, and went perfectly with the Montepulciano they were paired with.

Poached pear with almond financier and crème fraiche -- paired with a Muscat

I really don't have anything to add. I just loved the meal so much that I wanted to write it down. Extra points for our adorable waiter, who had splendid ink and piercings, and who I hope got to have some of the lamb after hours (he told us, after we raved about it, "Yeah, we're all totally jealous about that, I won't lie").

Yum, O YUM...(she said as she delicately wipes the drool off her keyboard..heh) Happy Anniversary, you two! and btw, I love the word polyamorous. I love even more that someone makes it work in the world. I'd given up.

That pretty much sounds like the most amazing meal ever. EVER. I'm with your inked waiter, as in YUM!

Happy anniversary, and I'm so pleased to hear about your wallet. *big hugs*
