Today is James’ birthday. This meant a special dinner was in order – namely Sibling Rivalry. I’ve heard great things about the dueling chef/brother restaurant before but had never stepped foot inside.
We started with appetizers (both Chef Bob’s) –
Mussels in a curry, coconut milk broth (my favorite dish of the entire night).
James got steak tartar. Yes, that’s raw meat. No I had no desire to try it. We aren’t on a raw food kick, and I didn’t intend to start one! (He liked it).
For an entree I had chicken (Chef Bob)
Pretty good. I’ve had better chicken before, but, I mean, it’s hard to top my favorite restaurant in the city (Bin 26 Enoteca).
James enjoyed the other poultry – duck (Chef David).
We finished the meal with…
Chocolate bread pudding.
And lemon pudding with lavender ice cream. Honestly, I wasn’t crazy about eating something I use to zap zits (yes, lavender is an amazing thing!), but James claimed to like it so that’s all that matters.
All in all, a wonderful meal, and a happy birthday boy.
