It had been a while since Jimmy and I paid Corton a visit. I hesitate to link my first post on it, because the pictures didn't do the food justice. It was actually our first real date spot, and I didn't want to bring a giant SLR to a nice dinner and scare away this guy who didn't know me very well yet... heh heh. I'm pretty sure he was still holding back his laughter/snarky comments when I shot every dish that first night. Afterwards, there were a number of times when we thought of eating there again on a random night but if I didn't have my real camera, we decided not to (I know, I'm crazy) and wait until I could shoot it properly. We finally were able to do that this past Wednesday.
The main highlight for me was this salted caramel dessert. I was feeling pretty bleh about restaurant desserts for a while, until this one. It was all sorts of exciting, and I liked it so much I got greedy and didn't want to share. The mojito and sidecar flavored macarons were a hit with me too.
In a nutshell, these pictures go something like this: canapes, bread + seaweed butter (!), egg amuse for Jimmy, little thing of foie amuse for me, mushroom appetizer for me (three plates for it), foie gras + beet app for Jimmy, main poularde dish for me, main black bass dish for Jimmy (the thing on the rock is crispy bass skin), palate cleanser, and all the sweets. There were so many elements to each dish it's hard to really list out all the details (and would be a bore too, so let's just enjoy the food porn).
Not too shabby at all for a Wednesday night.
