We had another excellent dinner at Tillie's Saturday night. We haven't been there in a few months (since before Mrs. P fractured her wrist). When we arrived there was a nice bottle of Champagne at our table that Chef Wirt & his wife Karen had gifted us for being such good customers. That was so sweet of them. We had also brought a nice bottle of red zinfandel as a present for them (2014 Muscardini Los Chamizal). Below is the current menu.
Chef Wirt comped us with a delicious smoked chicken & dumpling soup to start. It was very hearty & had a nice smokiness to it. It was perfect for the cold snowy weather outside.
We also had an appetizer of steak tartare with capers, cornichon & toasted rye bread.
For entrees Mrs. P has her usual Shrimp & grits with shishito peppers, brandy, hot sauce, & roasted garlic. It's perfect cajun comfort food.
I had a really crispy duck confit with white beans,broccoli rabe, & collard greens. It was so flavorful.
We took home a whole key lime pie which we ordered ahead of time.
