A Dinner for the Senses – Dining at the Ritz-Carlton’s Salt

2013 08 Culinary Salt Ritz-Carlton 05

One more post today – we had the pleasure of celebrating our 12th wedding anniversary at the AAA Five Diamond restaurant, Salt, at The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island – and I am comfortable saying it was the best all around meal I have ever had!  The evening was full of surprises – such as an especially delicious smoked prawn masterpiece compliments of Salt’s Chef de Cuisine, Rick Laughlin (below – note the smoke filled glass dome).

To start the evening, we enjoyed artisan breads paired with a selection of exotic and unique salts.  For our first course, Bryn enjoyed Grilled Romaine Salad with a Tomato Fondue and I sampled the Chilled Avocado Soup with Australian Crab and Cumin Crisp.  The chef treated us to the above second course – a smoked Prawn over Grits with a Balsamic Reduction.  For our main course, I enjoyed  Beef Tenderloin and Main Lobster, while Bryn had the Diver Scallops with White Asparagus Risotto and and English Pea Broth.  And, to finish our evening, we each had a Souffle – Bryn’s was Dark Chocolate with Salted Carmel Ice Cream and White Chocolate Cream Anglaise, while mine was and Orange Grand Marnier Souffle with Orange Rosemary Ice Cream and Grand Marnier Anglaise.  The meal was amazing!

As always, feel free to download any or all of the images for use as desktop wallpaper!  Enjoy!
