I got back from a trip to Madrid and Cairo Wednesday. Haven’t had a chance to write anything up or go through the pictures yet, but in the meantime, here’s the scoop from dinner at Jacobs & Co. last night.
- Freshly shucked oysters
- Jacobs Caesar salad
- Sergio Mottura 2009 Brut
- 9oz prime Angus striploin from PEI, aged 30 days + sautéed rapini w/ anchovy butter, chili flakes + braised onions w/ Armagnac, butter
- 12oz Sekai Ranch Wagyu ribeye from Puslinch, ON + duck fat french fried potatoes w/ tarragon
- 2009 Etude Cabernet Sauvignon
- Glasses of 1929 Don Pedro Ximenez
Believe it or not, that 1929 PX was a consolation prize. Our server showed us something special: a bottle of 1863 Madeira. We didn’t have any — it cost $500 a glass! — but man was I tempted.
