Being the Southern gentleman that he is, MCB invited me out for a non-Valentine's dinner earlier in February to Joe's in Venice. Easy choice to go with the tasting menu, so we could try as much as possible.
I didn't take too many photos in the dark place, but here's a rough idea of what we ate:
1) Amuse Bouche
2) Hamachi Crudo
Navel Orange, Fennel, Ginger Vinaigrette
3) Maine Diver Scallop
Salsify Cream, Treviso, Wild Rice, Veal Jus
