I hadn't eaten a memorable meal in ages, since some toasted gnocchi a year ago. Another pasta, another fish, some fresh vegetables on the side, a novel sushi combination, yadda yadda. Have I become hopelessly jaded?
Or maybe most restaurants don't work hard enough. We returned to Millenium Restaurant
for a sensational meal.Orange Glazed Exotic Mushrooms
toasted crostini, herbed lemon pesto, cherry tomatoes
sounds like any other bruschetta-type appetizer, but those were by far the best mushrooms I have ever tasted.Blackberry BBQ Tempeh
warm roasted corn, sweet pepper & brown rice salad, orange vinaigrette, ginger cucumber pickle, toasted pecans
was exquisitely tasty. I sat there for an hour grinning like an idiot making subvocal grunting noises (a habit I picked up from one of our dogs, it's his version of purring). My significant partner other domestic had a crazy dessert of avocado and red Hawaiian salt and lemon zests that tasted like nothing else. Millenium's chef Eric Tucker is operating on a higher plane than a merely fine restaurant. And it's a vegan
I shouldn't be surprised, years ago at Millenium's old location I had a warm chocolate cake that brought tears to my eyes.
