Surprise Dinner #2 – Bistro Jeanty
Dan and I had actually eaten at Bistro Jeanty nearly 5 years ago on our first visit to Napa. However, we were rookies in the foodie field and didn’t understand the level of awesomeness that was in front of us. I think I ordered tomato soup. Whomp whomp.
This time around, we were ready. Plus, we had our two friends along for the ride, Zach and Kendra. They just happen to overlap us in Napa, so it only made sense that we enjoy some phenomenal French food together.
Appetizers – Escargot, Pork Belly over Foie Gras with lentils and Lobster Dumplings. We should have stopped there. Such rich flavors.
But we didn’t.
Main courses pursued.
I stuffed my face with the lamb neck “osso buco” with black olives and creamy polenta. The lamb was so tender and simply flaked of the neck bone. It was a very heavy meal, and I couldn’t even finish it all, which made me so sad. It was so delicious, I didn’t want to waste any of it. I should have stopped there.
But I didn’t.
Dessert happened. Chocolate crème brulee and berry bread pudding.
This was a perfect example of the delectableness of French cooking. Within about 2 hours I was 9 months pregnant with the biggest food baby I’ve ever had. Totally worth it.
