A fine meal indeed!

At Wolfgang Puck Grill, where Chef Marc outdid himself with a superb meal for Mr Cicerone's (fussy) parents, and us too of course. Parent's o' Mr Cicerone opted for the "Three Course Prix Fixe Tasting menu", exceptional value for a mere $29. Not only were the dishes wonderful, the portions were huge! Moist roasted chicken breast for Mum o' Mr Cicerone, and perfectly cooked rare steak for Dad. We opted for the A La Carte menu, and I started with a rich creamed cauliflower soup garnished with chunks of lobster, and some New Holland Full Circle Kolsch. (Oh my!) Mr Cicerone enjoyed a mixed vegetable salad, also with the Kolsch. For his entree, Mr Cicerone enjoyed Marinated Flat Iron Steak, Shiitake Mushrooms, Napa Cabbage & Steamed Jasmine Rice. ("That was awesome!") with Bell's Porter. I had an amazing fish dish, which sadly, I can't recall exactly (we were there about three weeks ago.), consisting of a large chunk of perfectly cooked, moist fish over morsels of braised fennel, nestled in a rich harissa broth. Oh, there were a bunch of large chunks of moist shrimp scattered o'er the fish (I just can't remember what sort of fish it was!) My beer to accompany the dish was Reutberger Dunkel, and it was perfect. Dessert for us was beer (New Holland The Poet oatmeal stout), but Parent's o'Mr Cicerone were wowed with this fabulous (and huge!) chocolate creation, all part of the Prix Fixe meal.
The service was superb. And, we were seated in a cozy booth "far from the maddening crowd",
Thank you Marc!
