Town Hall Grill Blogging : Early Bird Dinner

A bunch of us from ScienceOnline09 met at the Town Hall Grill for the Early Bird Dinner. We had a limited menu, which forced me to branch out and order something other than their wonderful fried oysters, which was a good thing. We all started out with a fantastic salad. It had a light coating of vinaigrette dressing. Some of the other conference attendees didn't think there was enough dressing, but I thought it was just right. The salad had surprisingly good tomatoes for winter, cucumbers, pitted kalamata olives, greens and fresh mozarella. Excellent. In fact, this was my favorite portion of the meal.

Our possible entrees included a NY Strip, a poblano chile, mussels and snapper and roasted chicken. As you can see, I picked the mussels and snapper. I love mussels, so they are hard to pass up, but the snapper was very good. The tomato sauce and vegetables were also good. I intended to take half of this home to eat at work the next day, but I decided to eat all of it instead.

For dessert, we all had the chocolate ganache cake. This thin slice of chocolate decadence really packed a punch, because it was like eating a chocolate truffle. I took about 3/4 of it home and shared it with the Most Faithful Readers.
