The next round was seafood.

The waitress poured the most aromatic wine I've ever smelled. It was very citrusy (I'm gonna make up words as I go, if needed. Poor spell check.) and smelled like how I think a grapefruit SHOULD smell. (I'm not a fan of grapefruit.) Domaine Font de Michelle Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc, Rhone 2010 Sorry, no pictures.

Kyle had the turbot (extra $30 for those who are pricing this.)

Wild turbot with toasted capers & preserved lemon.
The turbot was light & flaky, not fishy at all. It was a good sized portion as well. I didn't taste it, but Kyle said the lemon overwhelmed the delicate flavor of the fish, but it wasn't off-putting.

I had the diver scallop & gulf shrimp cioppino with Maine mussel & fennel nage.

Oh. Mah. Gaw. That broth stuff? Delicious! And the scallop... that's what it would taste like if butter came from the sea. Know how some scallops aren't treated right & get rubbery? Or have grit in them? Not this one. Yum. The sear on it caramelized the scallop... oh my. Really, it was excellent. ETA: I forgot to mention the mussel. Now, I like the flavor of them, but apparently I have NEVER had one cooked properly before this night. The flavor was mild, and it was tender, not chewy. So good!

Next they served us brioche. Because I love bread so much, it will get its own post, giving it the respect it's due.
