Nine Ten - La Jolla, CA

In honor of my birthday a beautiful spread was prepared for me... It was called, "Mercy of the Chef" course after, course paired with wine, came to the table... Enjoy the fast with your eyes!

Cheers with some bubbly!

Thank you Scott for making all of this possible.

Our amuse bouche for the evening - Tuna Tartare. In my opinion, it was the one of the most delicious things all night!

My goat cheese and beet salad. Very light and tasty.

Salmon Citrus Salad on the far end...

My Salmon and Farro. The salmon was cooked perfectly.

Jealous of Scott's fantastic looking Halibut!

Beef Cheek for the mister, the glaze looked amazing!

Lamb for the lady, served with fava bean puree.

Lemon curd with raspberry sorbet and freeze dried merguine. Holy yum.

Raspberry sorbet, strawberry and freeze dried meringue as well.

Can you believe all these courses? All paired with terrific wines! What an experience. I was full but in a good way. I feel like this dining experience has changed me. I am a better person for it. Thank you again Scott for arranging all of this. It was perfect.
