Forget best dinner of the weekend, this was one of the best meals of the year!

We shared three different appetizers because we couldn’t narrow down our choices any more.  Roasted cauliflower with anchovy and pickled raisins.

For dinner I ordered the dish that got us in the door – Matzoh ball ramen topped with a foie gras dumpling and soft-boiled egg.  The ramen was 10/10 fantastic and the matzoh ball ended up being the best I’ve ever eaten.

Dessert was chocolate banana challah bread pudding with crème fraiche and whiskey caramel.

The service was almost as good as the food, which was so good I swear we would have ordered another round of every dish if we hadn’t been so full!
