Last night i went to Park Kitchenwith my girlfriends to celebrate kaatje’s birthday. I have wanted to go there for years and finally the stars were aligned and we got to try it out.
So, the menu was overwhelming. It was possibly the most eclectic menu i have ever seen and i just kept looking it over and thinking, what am i going to eat?? At the top of the menu under the name of the restaurant was HAPPY BIRTHDAY KAATJE. Then our AWESOME waiter, best waiter of the year, told us we could just kick back and the chef would love to cook for us. ummmm no brainer. So we sat back and the plates began to arrive. Each plate was more interesting and unique then the last. The flavors just exploded and everything was seasonal and local. The one i keep thinking about were these wide beet pasta noodles with beef shortribs, brusselsprout leaves, a crazy butter sauce and creme fresh. OH MY GOD! it was incredible! i would go back just for that. Then we got desserts including parsnip apple beinets with a roasted white chocolate sauce. my favorite was a scoop of sour cream apple ice cream. yummmmmy!
The only odd thing was that they really wanted to get rid of us. we sat around talking and then we asked for another glass of wine at 10 and it was like we asked them to cook us a new meal…they were NOT happy about that and let us know like 3 times that this was the last thing we could have. Some people have no sense of humor. too bad for us i suppose but i would go back any day of the week just to have our waiter show us his iphone again and to eat those beet noodles.
We also fell in love with this wine.
We are already in love with Sami
OH and my crocuses are up! SO FUN!
