Unlike any other, this dinner took place on UT campus.
It was my first time visiting & dining at the University of Texas Club.
We got nestled at our table and ordered our drinks.
Why get a glass when you can have a bottle?
We couldn't get enough of the batter fried avocado filled with spicy crab salad with siracha aioli & micro greens. I will have to try to recreate this recipe at home!
The pecan crusted oysters with jalapeno basil aioli were delicious!
Perfectly crunchy & flavorful. I could have eaten plates of them, but saved myself.
For the main course, Chris went for the grilled ribeye with stacked potatoes, roasted tomato & grilled asparagus.
I opted for the pecan crusted rack of lamb with oven roasted risotto cakes, grilled asparagus & mint pesto.
Both entrees were excellence choices!
Perfectly cooked to medium-rare.
The oven roasted risotto cakes were oh so good! I've never had anything like it before.
For sweets, the staff wheeled over the dessert cart filled with variety of fresh, delicious chocolate, Italian cream & carrot cakes served right from the cart.
I went for the creme brûlée cheesecake.
I died & went to heaven!
Note to self: search for recipe.
Chris opted for a slice of chocolate cake, of course.
And we weren't the only one...
