It felt like a foggy London night in the 1800s winding our way on cobblestones to Winter Place. But it was Boston 2015 on our way to a supper party at Yvonne’s at the invitation of Dame Judith Fabre McDonough. Dame Beth Berardi joined us for dinner.
The newly, extravagantly renovated restaurant, originally Lock-Ober, was buzzing with activity; not a empty seat to be found.
Judith presented cocktails and a four-course meal with her Mariposa wines as accompaniments.
- The first course consisted of Kale and Orzo Salad, Baked Oysters “Savannah”, and Charred Maitake Mushrooms.
- Second course: Grilled Octopus, Broccoli Rabe, and Chicken & Quinoa Meatballs.
- Third course: Crispy Tuna Fregola, Grilled Beef Matambre.
- Fourth course: Treats of Yo’s Macaron Ice Cream Sandwich, Drumsticks, Miniature Whoopie Pie.
The dishes were incredibly prepared and absolutely delicious.
Both Frank and I were duly impressed. All of this in a gorgeous setting for a mere $85. This party of eight had a wildly good time!
