The Distinguished Gourmand: Majordomo
Apparently, I’ve been dining out a lot lately. Or, at least it would appear if you’re one of the few readers still keeping tabs on me. Yes, I had two cool dinner reservations this week. No, that’s not indicative of my life these days. If I was truly living the life of a “baller,” I probably wouldn’t be sitting on my ass right now watching MTV while stone cold sober! Alas, here I am. BUT! On Sunday night some friends invited us out for dinner. When I learned the reservation-to-be was at Majordomo, I immediately (or as close to immediately as I am capable of) RSVP’d “Yes!” I thought I was the only person I know not to have dined there yet. Finding a couple who were also NOOBS made the prospect all the more exciting.
The other wrinkle added to this night out was that one person at the table was a pescatarian. This meant no meat! It forced me to look at the menu in ways I otherwise wouldn’t. Normally I’d spot duck liver mousse, sausage-stuffed peppers, fried oxtail, and pork belly and that would pretty much make my order. NONE of these items wound up on our table, and I couldn’t be happier with our meal. Here are the highlights:
So that’s Majordomo! And that’s it for this week, probably. Next week we’re going to Colorado for 4th of July weekend. I’ll write about the trip upon my return. Yes, I know I owe you a “Top 10 Albums Of The Year…So Far” list. And yes, I know I owe you a “Top 10 Beers Of The year…So Far” list. I’ll make sure to post those upon my return, the second week of July. Until then, have a safe and happy Independence Day. Cheers, Y’all.
