Dinner at Bourbon Steakhouse

My San Francisco trip is going to be recorded in food. We have eaten and eaten some more. Of course the guys are on their feet all day and walking to and from meetings. I have been indulging in the fitness center and swimming pool as well as walking around San Francisco so we are ready when dinner time rolls around. 

Dinner at the Bourbon Steakhouse began not with bread but with three kinds of flavored french fries, hot and crisp, served with three dipping sauces.

My corn chowder came with a lovely pile of vegetables and crabmeat in the bowl with the soup poured over it from a beautiful pitcher. 

Beet salad

Shrimp Cocktail



My shrimp louie and avocado. Sides included broccoli and cheese, creamed spinach and "mashed" potatoes - in quotes because it was more like puree. Every bite delicious.

For dessert, I had to be presented with the pastry cart. I chose a mint "Oreo" (house made of course), a dark chocolate bark, almond macaroon, and a dark chocolate "s'more" (see bottom shelf). She even brought out the flame and heated and melted the marshmallow top. 

Beignets with dipping sauce. Good but not NOLA beignets which set my standard.

Dean as usual wanted his vanilla ice cream with chocolate sauce ~ dark chocolate, delicious! He had his own little pitcher from which to pour. 
Excellent meal. Terrific service. And the business conversation didn't start until well into dessert so we arrived back at the hotel after 11:30. Tired but full and happy.
