Anniversary Part 2

On Friday night my husband and I ventured to the place where we said our vows for a romantic dinner. The Herb Lyceum at Gilson’s is a fantastic place that takes you out of the hussle and stress of regular life and transports you into heaven.

Despite the rain and early arrival, we were instantly relaxed by the dried rosemary and sage that filled the carriage house. Patrons are seated at a large table all together to intermingle- be prepared to talk to your neighboors.

Cell phones are not permitted- thank god- so I only snapped a few photos. Dinner was comprised of the following ( For detailed impressions of of each dish visit my other blog, MyGoodHouse) :


Warmed Goat Cheese with olives in truffle oil

First Course

Butternut Squash Cappellaci with sage brown butter

Second Course

 Heirloom Tomato and Arugula Salad with balsamic vinaigrette

Main Course

Apple Walnut Sage Stuffed Pork Chop with fontina cheese and scallion, potato and herb puree

Vegetarian Course

Cheese Plate

We chatted the night away with a Boston Globe food editor , an investment advisor in the energy field, and a gym teacher. Phenomonial cusine and great conversation. We left stuffed and eager for the October menu.
