I have mentioned before how big a fan I am of things like Groupon, Living Social, Travelzoo, etc. Well I buy a ton of these things and Jenn and I use them for our date nights. Well this past weekend we had one of the best ones yet. For $99 we had a 5 Course Dinner with Wine Pairings for two at The Californian at the Hyatt Huntington Beach. We could not have asked for better weather, food, or drinks.
Course #1: Pan Seared Scallop, Cauliflower Puree, Waldorf Salad and Curry Oil served with JCB #21 Brut
Course #2: Spring Onion Soup, Drake Farm's Goat's Cheese, Rocket and Lemon
Course #3:Frisse Salad, Poached Egg, Asparagus, Bacon Lardons, Simple Vinaigrette with Silver Birch Sauvignon Blanc
Course #4:Grilled Natural Filet, Midnight Moon Kennebec Potato Gratin, Grilled King Oyster served with Gloria Ferrer, Pinot Noir.
Course #5: Meyer Lemon Cheesecake, Blood Orange Reduction and Cream
And here are some pictures of dinner and the surrounding area. It was a truly gorgeous night and one of the best dinners I have had in my life. It was truly incredible.
