I chose The Dining Room at the Inn on Biltmore Estate
for dinner to celebrate Mom's 70th birthday!
I wanted it to be a very special meal experience
Because my parents certainly...
We began with a champagne toast, the Lemon poached shrimp cocktail, Heirloom
tomatoes and Estate garden salad. Then mom and dad chose the Atlantic Halibut...
While the man I love chose the pork tenderloin, featured on the menu as
Chef Boyer's winning dish from the 2010 Western North Carolina Chef's
Challenge competition. You can read more about that event here
After our attendant described the Surf and Turf special, I agreed to make it
my dish because you-know-who said he was dying for a bite of filet and
a scallop to go along with his pork tenderloin. And, as you can plainly
see, the scallop disappeared before I could even snap a photo!
Unfortunately, my steak and baked potato was delivered severely
over-cooked. And, when the replacement filet arrived bleeding, I
decided to forgo my dinner and just enjoy this evening with...
Which of course, was a triumph no Chef could deliver!
I do want to thank Chef for the dessert he sent out, and the Staff
at The Dining Room because their service was impeccable!
Happy Birthday, Mom!
Thank you for being here to Celebrate your special day with us!
