We had heard a lot about Yours Truly and finally got a chance to try out their prix fixe menu. We were presented with a menu of 8 ingredients to choose from. $55 gets you 4 courses. Between all of us, we were able to try all the dishes.
First up was beef and yam. The beef was a tartar on a bed of sushi rice. It wasn't anything out of the ordinary but it tasted pretty good. The yam dish was a salad with yam and beets.
The egg dish was quite interesting. It was a poached egg covered with some sort of foam. This tasted pretty good and was one of the more unique dishes of the night.
The overall feedback on Yours Truly is that it was a nice meal and $55 is pretty good for a four-course meal. I wouldn't mind coming back to this place.
My second meal was at Campagnolo, which was one of the best new restaurants of 2011 according to enRoute magazine. When we first walked in, we thought it would be a quiet night for the restaurant, but people kept rolling in.
We ordered a bunch of appies including a charcuterie plate and a fresh cheese with roasted grapes, YUM!
For mains, we had a lamb ragu pasta and an arctic char. I really liked the house-made pasta.
For my last birthday meal, we went to a homestyle Italian place called Desserts Plus out in Woodbridge. Their portions were huuuuge and the food was quite authentic. The pizza made out of the wood-fired oven was delicious as well. Nothing beats a nice hearty Italian meal shared family style.
Another birthday spent with lovely friends and delicious food. Looking forward to an exciting new chapter in my life.
