While on a ski trip in February, we ate at Lone Eagle Grille. This was the best meal of the year so far. Of course, with two small children, fine dining is not usually high on our list these days. Pappadoo and Mooma kept Sam and Sarah while Scott and I ate there.
The first thing that intrigued us was that the wine list was on an iPad. I asked how many iPads that they had for this purpose, and I think they said a number between 5 and 10.
This is one time that I only photographed what I ate and not what Scott ate. Not because his was not presented well, but I think I was just so anxious to eat mine. My choices were a bit unbalanced because they were both seafood.
For my appetizer, I ordered the "Smoked Hokkaido Scallops" with yuzu gastrique, vanilla parsnip puree, and uni butter. After writing all of those ingredients, I feel like I have given a description. These had to be some of the best scallops I have ever had--plump and juicy (well for scallops, anyway). The scallops were clothed in just the right amount of tang and velvety texture.
For my entree, I ordered the so-called "Seared Barramundi Fillet" with pearl onion, baby fennel, roasted red bliss potatoes, and herb beurre blanc. This is as good as it gets.
