The Ranch House - Take 2

Happy Birthday dinner for Jennifer! Kate so generously hooked us up for a fantastic meal.

The Koi Pond - Big boys!

Blurry Mushroom Struedal - Shiitake, portobello & morel mushrooms sautéed with fresh herbs & onion wrapped in filo dough and baked - mushroom & wine cream sauce. I didn't even get a bite!

A semi-boned quail marinated in red wine, dijon mustard, fresh thyme and honey, grilled and served with assorted baby lettuce & pine nuts tossed in toasted sesame oil & gingered rice vinaigrette.

My absolute favorite - The Tortilla Soup. It is so good. I wonder if I can pick it up to go?

Fresh seabass marinated in olive oil, sherry and fresh herbs, broiled with a parmesan lime aioli. I gobbled it up like it was the last fish on Earth.

Beef tenderloin grilled and served on a ragout of crimini mushrooms, onions, merlot and wild mushroom broth – béarnaise sauce on the side. Kathy seemed to like it and that made me happy!

Swordfish steak brushed with lemon thyme butter, grilled and served with a mango salsa on the side.

Holy yum. Ask for the Trio.

This is one sad looking Creme Brulee. Enough said.

I will keep coming back. You cannot beat the atmosphere. Bamboo and white lights make for a special evening at The Ranch House!
