Hey, that looks familiar...

This is actually my third time blogging about meals at Degustation and looking at my last post on it, I realized just how similar this post is to it... whoops! This is what I ate on my actual birthday. It was unplanned and got off to a super late start (after a failed attempt to dine at SHO Shaun Hergatt because the kitchen had just closed when we got there), but it was a nice way to end the day. We went with the shorter five-course option, but they were really nice and gave us side-by-side pairings so we'd have more variety.

I must say I love the salads at this place. And I could still do without the fried sweetbreads.

Ugh, that caramelized brioche never gets old. How many birthday wishes are we allowed to make anyway? :P (One final birthday meal post coming up soon!)


  1. Yum! Everything looks almost too pretty to eat. And I could also do without sweetbreads (isn't that name so misleading?).

  2. Thank you for sharing your birthday eats (Part II?).

    And you can make as many wishes as you want; how many you get fulfilled is another issue altogether.

    Have a great week!

  3. Did you use a gray card, auto white balance or Photoshop? As you were worried about your white balance before, these results look good!

  4. @A reader,

    Combination of shooting in RAW with auto white balance in the camera, and then some photoshop adjustments! Glad you think the white balance looks all right :)

  5. the shape of the dishes are so awesome. i'm officially starving, too.

    I wish I could eat like that every night.

  7. everything just looks so delicate and yummy!
