I’ve been neglecting my blog… well neglecting cooking for a while. But that doesn’t stop me from eating. On Friday, I headed to Miracle Mile in Miami to meet up with my friend Josephra and a few of her other bridesmaids to pick out a bridesmaid dress. Jo wanted to thank us for putting up with the torture of trying on dresses and take us to dinner. We actually first headed to Tarpon Bend but it was crowded for happy hour. We then walked over to Angelique Euro Cafe which happens to be the restaurant where Jo plans to have her Bridal Shower.
Lobster Bisque with Asparagus topped with Crab Meat
I ordered this on the specials menu. I wasn’t very hungry as I had a late lunch. Full of flavor, quite delicious. It was a little thin for a bisque but the flavor made up for it and it was also lite on the crab meat. With request I asked for more crab meat and they happily brought over additional crab meat.
Pasta con Fungi- Braised wild mushrooms, shallots with red wine demi-glace, roasted garlic & herb fused olio.
One girl shared this with another bridesmaid. I asked her what she thought. She said it reminded her of a dish she had at Carrabbas (or some other Italian chain) and it was better there. Ouch!
Gambas Angelique – poached jumbo shrimp in a Worcestershire herb butter sauce and saffron Valencia rice
I wish I had this. I didn’t get to try but I love shrimp.
Truffle Potato Gnocchi -roasted garlic marscapone cream sauce finished with amaretti crumbs
I always save the best for last. Jo and her friend shared the gnocchi. I was able to get a bite of it and I wanted more. Some people would say truffle is an acquired taste but once you try this you’ll forever be a fan.
