Wednesday was a perfect day for lunching in San Francisco...1st, it was my day off, 2nd, it was a beautiful day (sunny & not hot!) and 3rd (the best), it was my friend, Maggie's birthday! Carol & I celebrated with Maggie at her restaurant of choice, Absinthe. I had always wanted to try it & I'm so glad Maggie chose it. The food, decor & service was the best...our server, Brendan was funny, attentive & accommodating...
|Maggie & I both decided on the same entree~Roast Chicken with marscapone polenta,|
rainbow chard & thin crispy friend onion rings...delicious!!!!! It was a hard
decision but I'm glad I chose this dish...Good excuse to go back to try the other dishes!
|Carol opted to have the same entree but minus the chicken. Since she didn't get|
the chicken, she asked Brendan if she could have more polenta (which was absolutely wonderful!).
He obliged & brought out a bowlful of the creamy goodness!
|Dessert!!!! Black Forest Cake...not your usual but|
|Another Dessert!!! Beet Cake...different but so GOOD!!!|
This cake is a must try!
|Satisfied & happy! Carol, me & Maggie.|
