Supper Club 09/12

Last night Butch and I attended 1020 Restaurant's Fall Supper Club.  As usual the food was spectacular.  And Steve Hyman, the smoothest bass voice ever, sang standards as we ate.  He even came over and directed "Happy Days Are Here Again" to me.  Perfection.  The rest of this blog will be, as borrowed from my dear friend Kathleen Prater Taylor, almost wordless.

This is the rockfish sculpture outside of 1020.  I like to give her a pat every time we go in and leave.

This is Steve Hyman, the master vocalist and perfection when singing standards.  Petey was entranced!

First course, an amuse bouche -- mushroom pockets in a wonderful tomato sauce.

Second course, oh my!, was a vegetable cheddar soup with wonderful croutons.  Perfect!

Already partially consumed  (we forgot about the camera), is the Fall salad.  Cranberries, apples, walnuts and greens.

Once again, the refresher course was tackled before we remembered the camera!  Burgundy and mango sorbets.  So good!

Butch's entree was a pork loin chop stuffed with raisins and apples served with roasted root vegetables.

Mine was crab stuffed chicken breast with the delicious vegetables.  No flower on my plate because . . .

Petey swiped it and wouldn't give it back!

My dessert was a deletable pumpkin mousse that caused me to make noises all the while eating it!  Our dinner companion, Mr. Ed Hagger, did the same! 

Butch had the poached apple with caramel sauce.  And, as I always do, I had a taste.  So goooooodddd!

And this, my friends, is our chef, Kim, and her husband, Ed Hagger.  They are a complete delight and Petey was thrilled to have his picture taken with them. 

Once again, the food was exceptional, the music was sublime and the evening was perfect.  We came home totally satiated in all of our senses!  Next month I am having cranberry-orange game hen and Butch is having Beef Wellington!
