A Futurity Practice in Los Olivos allowed me to try one restaurant I have been wanting to try for years. Welcome Brothers Restaurant. We sit down without reservations on a Wednesday evening and got a good view of the cooking line. It was the best seat in the house if you ask me. The bread basket is a tasty one - try the Jalapeno Cornbread!
Soup and Salad to get the meal going right. I had the Sweet Corn Bisque and it was so delicious. I have never had such a sweet and savory combination. The portion was a large one too. Eat up, Buttercup!
Fish Special of Halibut with a corn and tomato relish. I was told it lacked seasoning. Maybe relied too much on the freshness of the vegetables? I am not sure. The fish portion was enough for two - they certainly do not want you going home hungry!
Idaho Rainbow Trout served with mashed potatoes and lemon-chive sauce was my order. I got this one right! I couldn't finish my meal but it was just dreamy.
If this meal was any indication of how Futurity Season 2011 will go I am darn excited. Cheers to good horses, delicious meals and soulful wines!
