We love going to the Refectory in Columbus. It is a five star restaurant and a few nights a week, they serve a bistro menu that is to die for. Mom, dad, Dannen and I were finishing up some last minute Christmas shopping on Thursday and stopped by. Matt served us at the bar and we ordered some amazing food.
First, we tried a couple of the Smoked Salmon and Lobster Paupiettes with herring caviar, spring herbs and creme aigrelette. This was certainly my favorite dish of the evening.
My other favorite is the gorgeous roasted goat cheese with shallots and olive oil. This dish was served with small, sliced yellow beets. It had a creamy, woodsy flavor. Yum!
Up next was the Grilled Artichoke Salad with rabbit cervellas and criolla vinaigrette.
Mom and I paired our meal of appetizers with a Patricia Green Pinot Noir (Willamette Valley). Fun evening!
