A last-minute Christmas dinner at Corduroy. They weren’t offering the typical, $30, 3-course bar menu on Christmas, but they were serving at the bar, and everyone in the restaurant had only one menu from which to choose: A $65, 3-course Christmas dinner.
The wine, the bread:
Kabocha Squash Soup
Salad of Beets, Carrots, and Goat Cheese
Peppered Rare Big Eye Tuna with Sushi Rice and Hijiki
Roast Free-Range Turkey with Sausage Stuffing, Giblet Gravy, Root Vegetable Mash, Potato Purée, Bok Choy, and Cranberry Sauce
Bread Pudding, and you know what?
We were so stuffed that we ordered the bread pudding to-go, and we were also so stuffed that we forget to wait for it – the desserts were left at the restaurant, hopefully for our wonderful servers to enjoy after a long Christmas service.
