Today was the second annual, what I like to call, gawker-stalker brunch at Volt in Frederick. I cannot tell you how much I look forward to this birthday present. Happy (belated) birthday to us! And this year no one is pregnant. Yes, we would like more mimosas to wash down that half a dozen scones.
We both went for the three course prix fixe menu again and loved every morsel. I had tuna tartare as my first course and even though it didn’t sing to me like the tartare at The Oval Room it was pretty damn good just the same. I had the corned beef hash as my second course (Erin had the steak and eggs). Yum. Seriously. I had the goat cheese cheesecake for dessert. Perfect. I mostly decided on the tuna because yuzu vinaigrette was referenced on the menu and then I pretended to be Padma while I ate it. And yes, I totally took a picture of our food but I did turn off the sound and the flash so nobody would laugh at me. And I might have peeked into the kitchen and then I might have ran back to the table to report that yes, he was working in there. I might have done those things. Did I mention that I had a couple of mimosas? Good times.
What a good day. I’m marking my calendar for next year.
