A dinner date at Fraser Cafe

Last night my husband and I went to Fraser Café (in New Edinburgh) for dinner. We had never been there before but I had heard alot of good things about it. For the family Christmas gift exchange my aunt and uncle got us a $200 gift card there so we were excited to eat and drink to our hearts' content. And we SURE DID. It was awesome. Awesome food, drinks and service. We will definitively go back (to use up the $13 we have left on the card LOL). OK so here's what we feasted on:

{ salt lick - grapefruit juice, vodka, campari, salt rim }
{ thyme lemonade - vodka, thyme syrup, lemon juice, soda }
***the lemonade was so damn good we need to attempt to recreate this at home***

{albacore tuna - stuffed and fried jalapenos ~ apple ~ salsa ~ lime ~ coriander }

{ beet salad - bacon ~ dill cream cheese ~ pickled fennel ~ honey sherry vinaigrette }

{ scallops – Israeli couscous ~ grilled veg ~ harissa cream ~ preserved lemon }

{ BBQ beef & fries - horseradish cream ~ sliced tomato ~ carrots ~ jus }

{ pineapple upside down cake - coconut ice cream ~ pecans }

{ espresso chocolate tort - hazelnuts ~ whipped cream ~ raspberry purée }

The best part was when my husband picked up the remainder of his tort (mostly the crust) with his hand and says "don't mind me!" and then while lifting it to his mouth, proceeds to drop it on his plate, narrowly missing the table. We laughed so hard I was in tears.

P.S. I blogged my atire for this dinner date over on the mourning cloak

I absolutely LOVE Fraser Café! I've been there a few times (you should try their breakfast/brunch) and will be going there for my birthday this week. Ooohhhh the steak frites! And the ambiance is great.
