We’d been meaning to go to Palate for a long time, but we somehow only got our act together last Sunday, when my diet was limited because of being pregnant. It was still tasty, but I think I missed out on a few things. (OK, I know, I’ve got a bigger goal.) Palate is known for its wine list and Bryan and our friend Tad mmmm’ed their way through pinot noirs and sauvignon blancs. The “mixologist” had at least one fun non-alcoholic drink on his menu — a cucumber lime cooler — which Tammy and I ordered, twice, maybe out of spite. The prix fixe Sunday meal started with a wild greens salad with hazelnuts. It probably would’ve been better with the runny egg that came on top of it, but I had to donate mine to Bryan. I had to order my hangar steak medium well, but it still had nice flavor. The whole meal finished off nicely with a Valrhona chocolate pudding sprinkled with fleur de sel and a chocolate torte. At least I don’t have any limitations on dessert!
