The Cruisers suggested that we go to Sunday Dinner at Eva earlier this year.
Sunday Dinner costs $35 per person and includes five family-style courses and wine.
You have the option of red or white.
Little gem lettuce, green goddess dressing.
A simple start. Good enough but not terribly interesting.
Chicken harissa, peas, crème fraîche.
Outstanding flavor and amazingly juicy. Very very good.
Braised brisket, natural jus, mustard, broccoli, garlic, lemon, olive oil.
Fine but not impressive. Should have been more tender.
Root vegetable gratin.
A pleasant side.
Tableside coffee from Kenya.
The dishes above served all four of us. After we finished our tarts, we were still hungry. The meal we'd just devoured wasn't satisfying. Nothing was bad at all, but, aside from the chicken harissa and Kenyan coffee, nothing was really noteworthy.
To be honest, I've had better meals prepared by Ms. Cruiser herself!
We walked to Milk.
Mint chip ice cream sandwich ($4.50).
Do you like macarons? Do you like mint chip ice cream? Do you like chocolate? If your answer is "yes" to all three questions, prepare for heaven.
The Brownie -- double fudge brownie with chocolate and vanilla ice cream, hot fudge, pecans, whipped cream ($6.50).
Too much chocolate for me and my allergies, but the rest of our crew liked it.
The Blondie -- white chocolate blondie with vanilla ice cream, butterscotch and pecan praline ($6.50).
Loooooved this. My fave. I'm not allergic to white chocolate!
Large hot vanilla ($3.25).
This is what every allergic-to-chocolate girl needs when everybody else is eating chocolate. Like a warm hug for your esophagus.
Any night with the Cruisers is a good night, but Milk helped make up for a somewhat lackluster meal at Eva. Yay for sugar.
