Ever since reading about Delphine’s seafood platters and $1 oysters during happy hour, I’ve been meaning to check out the place….
alas, because of situation and circumstances, the seafood platter and $1 oysters would have to wait until next time…
Still, I had a great time hanging out with the cool kids..
Delphine bills itself as a seafood joint so I thought it’d be safe to stick with fish…
Sheila and I both got the trout meunière served with sautéed shrimp, potatoes, lemon, parsley brown butter. Trout when prepared right can be a beautiful dish. Unfortunately, it was not very good here. It was way too salty, most likely due to the shrimp. Presentation wise, it’s not very eye catching. Oh well, live and learn.
Darth got the pan roasted halibut served with crushed potatoes, nicoise olives, and a tomato almond vinaigrette. I had a bite. It was just okay.
sooj and danny liked their dishes. she got the hamburger, of course, while the cuban got the salmon.
My favorite thing I bit into this night came from EM. She ordered off the “Specials” section, and got the risotto with foie gras. That was tasty.
Overall, it was an okay experience. This night, it was all about my friends, with the food playing second fiddle. Ambiance was cool, and that Riesling was pretty refreshing.
