Patrick decided to make this week's pick a surprise. He only said it was across the Rez, we had reservations at 7:15, and he needed a button up shirt ironed. Mint (Urbanspoon) was our final destination.
First off, it's a very different vibe from Julep (it's sister restaurant). Mint is more of an intimate, cozy place (to me). We were seated in a small booth, secluded from most everyone else in the place, so it's good for a date night.
Patrick's pick, Patrick's pick for appetizer. He chose the crab cakes, on brioche toast, with remoulade.
I decided to try something different, so I went with the Lobster Mac and Cheese. They describe it as having a herbed bechamel, pasta shells, lobster, and truffle oil. It was also served with grilled ciabatta.
Patrick had the Prime Filet. It was served with a fig and mushroom risotto, asparagus, and Bernaise.
Everything about Mint was really good. We would definitely put it in our Top Five and can't wait to go back!
