Eight Course NYE Countdown

I’m far too busy watching college football to go into great detail about last night’s amazing NYE dinner with Brad Pitt. I also blame college football for my lack of desire to spend a long time working on the photos I snapped of everything we ate.

Sorry. But I think you’ll be okay.

The food was quite photogenic and didn’t need much help with my enhancing skills. And pictures are worth a thousand words. So…. the photos of our eight (EIGHT!!) course meal speak volumes on their own.

Oh yeah … worth mentioning … we had this amazing dinner at the new French restaurant in our tiny borough. In case you weren’t paying attention: THIS AMAZING PLACE IS DOWN THE STREET FROM OUR HOUSE! How do you say “This is Better Than College Football” in French!?!?!?

Amuse Boucher: Flavor Sphere
A ball of pomegranate that exploded in our mouths with some fennel seeds (?) on top. I have no idea. There is no description on the menu but it was really tasty.
