The culinary highpoint in a trip full of amazing food has to be the dinner Tammi and I had on my birthday at Joe Beef. A month after our trip to Montreal, I’m still drooling over the extreme and delicious meal we had there.
Rather than attempt to narrate the meal, I’m just going to give a visual recap of the spectacle after the jump. Enjoy!

Foie Gras Double Down. Yes. Foie Gras. Fried. With house smoked cheddar and bacon in sandwiched between it. This was a small.
Tonight's wine: a bottle of carignan.
Three Trees Wine, a bottle of carignan recommended by our server.

My main course, also picked by our server, was a whole pigeon.

My veggie side, because you can’t eat all that foie gras without at least trying to eat something healthy.

Tammi’s Spaghetti Homard Lobster. A serious win. So good. And it’s inspired me to try to recreate it at home.

After it was all done, we headed down the block for drinks at Liverpool House.
