I’m excited to share the May dinner for twelve pick…my husband and I went to the McNitch house. Located in Fourth Ward, it is in a gorgeous Victorian home, and is the place to experience true Southern hospitality.
It is pricey, so we made sure to save this one for a big celebration…my birthday and promotion to Ruby ambassador with Plexus. I am now a GEM! This means I have a pretty large team, get a nice bonus, but still do what I love…helping people get healthy!
The tables were adorned with fancy china, silver, and bright colors.
I got a glass of Malbec, my hubby got an OMB copper, and we placed our order. Before our first course we were served this little number…fruit and bacon. We knew we were at the right place!
I got she-crab soup, and Daniel got the artichoke bisque. Both of these soups were basically off the chain. I would come again simply for the soups!
And if soup wasn’t enough, we were told to pick another starter course! I went with the crab cake, and he got a salad.
A little raspberry sorbet to cleanse the palate before the main course!
Daniel ordered the surf and turf. The steak was incredible. At least the tiny bite he allowed me was incredible.
I got Dijon crusted rack of lamb. It was good, but not my favorite. I think I would go with the duck next time.
Dessert. We couldn’t decide, so they brought us all three! A coconut flan, lemon tart with basil ice cream, and a chocolate mousse with coffee ice cream.
I got this rose. He got the bill.
We had a really amazing time. The staff waits on you hand and foot. I felt like a princess, and loved every minute of it. We went early, and had the place to ourselves for about 45 minutes. We learned the history, and enjoyed walking the grounds and seeing the gardens where they grow herbs and vegetables.
We will go back!
