an egg is an egg...meditating at the Museo Miró in Barcelona

Birthday and Anniversary celebration on the same night with the same couple. What an excuse to go to j.gilbert's! Whereas one might look for a restaurant with a unique menu; here one can always find a superb meal.

We each had a Shrimp Cocktail for appetizer [$13.95 see blognote]. This is one of my favorite places to have this.

My entrée was Ivory King Salmon, a special for the night. The salmon was delicious and the presentation was very well done. The salmon rested on a bed of Spinach which rested on a Potato Gratin in a pool of Mustard Vinaigrette. This was all topped with a garland of Beet Microgreens. An excellent choice [$29.50]. The birthday entrée was the 18oz Ribeye Cowboy Steak bone-in [$35.95]with loads of Onion Straws. The anniversary [wife-side] entrée was the Filet Combo, a 4oz Filet and Scallops. Everyone enjoyed!

Desserts were the Almond Tuile Canolli [$7] and the Crême Brulée [$6]. I had a decaf Capuccino [$3.95].

bloginfo: We were at the Glastonbury j.gilbert's.
blognote: Our server [Tall Julie] recommended the original presentation of the Shrimp Cocktail as it had changed. She served it the 'old way' with the shrimp salted and peppered with a sheen of olive oil. Perfect!
