Vegetarian Tasting Menu on Christmas Eve at Restaurant August in New Orleans.
T’was the night before X-mas at Restaurant August…
Here’s the happy couple…
…and the meal that stole Christmas:
It couldn’t have been a more perfect, delicious evening. I’m so impressed with them for having a vegetarian tasting menu – even the amuse bouche (an eggnog panna cotta).
Unfortunately, this is how I’ve been since 9pm last night:
I’m really really really sick. I know it’s not food poisoning because Abe’s had the
same exact things as me the last few days. My stomach warned me the first night and I thought eating vegetarian would’ve been a safe bet – but I guess all the butter, cream, and sugar has finally caught up with me.
Even though I’ve got another full day left in New Orleans, it’s pretty safe to say that everything here on out is going to be as blah as can be….if I can manage to get anything down.
