Palo Brunch - May 24, 2009 - Part #1

I did not take quite as many pictures this time as I did in 2008 - no need to repeat what I already have, unless it is different, or the people are different, etc.

To see the pictures from 2008, click on these links:

Getting started - a toast to vacation

The food is arranged in 5-6 "stations", grouped by theme - seafood, dessert, pastries, cheese, etc.

Flowers, in the middle of the station area:

This station was centered around an ice-carved basket containing fresh flowers. Below the flowers, slightly washed out by the camera's flash, is a unique "pegboard" - metal, curved, with slots for spoon handles. Each spoon contains the same tantalizing tidbit. In 2008, it was a very thin slice of ahi tuna with lemon and caper. I forget what it was this time, but I might have a closeup further down the thread.


Melon and Prosciutto

Tomato and fresh mozzarella

Marinated Scallops


Stone Crab Claws

Ham and Asparagus

Grilled Vegetables

DH's appetizer plate, with shrimp arranged for me!

Various cheeses from the cheese station:


The cheese with no name - rather, the cheese I forgot to photograph its name

Pretty sure this was a Stilton




You can preview, near the kitchen. Here are representative plates, so that you can observe them before you order. On this side of the kitchen, the traditional breakfast options - eggs, pancakes

Close-up of the pancake, which appealed to me because of the description of the filling (something to do with whipped cream and orange). DS21 ordered it, I tasted it - and decided to get it next time. Others on the disboards have not been as enthusiastic about the pancakes (I think the word "gritty" was used), but I really enjoyed the one bite I had

To the right of the kitchen is the day's offering for fish, veal, etc.:


To see all photos, search Disboards using advanced search where "thread starter = ehagerty"; sort by descending post date. If you need help, let me know!!
