Dinner at Saint Emillion and a Play in Ft WOrth

As a joint Mother's day/lateBirthday gift my son took me out to dinner and a play.
We had heard of this little known, small, French Restaurant in the Cultural District
of Ft Worth
Saint Emillion --- it far surpassed my expectations. We could choose a 4 course or one course
I got the one and he got the 4 and we shared It was just the right amount w/ some duck for the next day as well.

First an amazing Quail Salad that was my absolute favorite of the night. The Quail was just so succulent and the red sun dried tomatoes were a little celebration for the palette

there was a fish appertiffe and tomato basil mozzarella appetizer I forgot to photograph
this was Spencer's Pork Ribeye divine

My Duck ala orange over Spinach Did not disappoint me-- it was just wonderful and the Roquefort potatoes Yumm

and my fav dessert Creme Brulee w/ my favorite fruit a red raspberry

we then went to the Arts Center

to see this play by Kids WHo Care it was so good

a very fun night

thank you son.
