My Last Meal

Ever play that game where you decide what your last meal would be?  I was never very good at it, but it turns out that's because I had never been to The George.  I went for a birthday celebration of a close friend last night, and it was the best meal I've had to date.  

The Birthday boy, P, has exquisite taste in both food and drink, so when he expertly suggested the 7 course taster dinner we knew we were all in for a treat (The George's chefs are also exceptional at preparing vegan cuisine).  P is an excellent story teller, so the evening was filled with so much laughter and amusement that even the maitre d' got in on the fun.  As a result, I missed a few courses but please enjoy my pictures from last night:
The amuse-bouche (highlight: the grilled heirloom tomato)

First course

 Second course (hightlight: the wasabi quinoa)
 Third course (highlight: brussel sprouts)
 Fourth Course (highlight: the skewered artichoke)
 Finale (highlight: the mission figs)
 A nice touch from the staff

My first fine dining, 100% vegan experience was a definite winner.  As you can see from the above, the chef put an emphasis on fresh and local food, opting for heirloom options (tomatoes!) and fresh herbs to add the flavours in place of heavy sauces.  Figs are always a palate pleaser for me, but my favorite taste of the evening? The wasabi quinoa was a total winner!
