Almost done with the restaurant reviews from vacation. Almost.
We ate at Marco Prime because it was my parents favorite restaurant from vacation.
To start, we ordered the tuna tartar: cucumber, tomato, avocado, citrus-truffle infusion, seaweed salad, crispy chips and black tobiko. It was good, but there was barely enough for each of us to have a taste. It was too small to take a picture of.
For dinner, Brandon and I each got a 6oz petit filet mignon and we ordered 2 sides to share: Brussels sprouts with bacon and parmesan cheese and hickory smoked mashed potatoes.
My meat was a little overcooked, but the sides were fantastic. The Brussels sprouts were perfectly cooked and the mashed potatoes were so smoky. If I could recreate the taste, I would.
We got free dessert because they accidentally put gluten on my dinner plate when they said they would not. I got the creme brulee.
It was so good. The sugar was perfectly caramelized and the cream has just the right amount of sweetness.
