Now that we’ve covered the day of the anniversary, let’s get to the night!
Oh. My. Gosh. This place was amazing. Unfortunately, it was really dark inside and the seating was rather close, so I opted not to take too many photos because I didn’t want to blind my dining compatriots with my flash. I took pictures of the food, which ended up being blurry, but trust me, you’ll see the deliciousness. Jesse and I opted for the Seasonal Harvest four course menu and it did not disappoint.
As you can tell, our meal was phenomenal. I mean, I was expecting decent, but this kind of blew decent out of the water. I got a lot of ideas for dishes I want to try in the future from our dinner. I hope I can recreate the mushroom dishes. Some things I loved about Millenium:
- Our waiter left us alone. Our drinks were always full, our food was prompt, and our tables were consistently pre-bussed. There was no small talk or schmoozing for a tip. We were allowed to eat in peace. It was magnificent.
- I HATE cantaloupe. I’m also not a big fan of tapioca. That being said, I actually liked the dessert, which was 2/3 stuff I don’t really like. The tapioca was cool because it was almost like boba tea pudding. The coconut was really refreshing.
- The Moroccan Spice Grilled Portobello Mushroom was hands-down the best dish of the night. Generally, Jesse and I pick two dishes we both find appealing and then order them, eat half, and then do a swap. He got the pasta first, which was a little dry and could have used more flavor, which means he got the best bite for last from the mushroom dish! I love the best bite (and go out of my way to save it in every meal) and I was sad to see it go to his mouth, but I was happy he enjoyed it. I guess that’s love.
- The sauces at Millenium are definitely the highlight of the meals. I loved them all.
It was a fabulous anniversary. I just hope we can follow it up in the next year. I say Thailand should be next.
I forgot to take a picture of Jesse and I looking all jazzed up and sexified at the anniversary dinner, so enjoy some extra pictures of us at the Fisherman’s Wharf.
Me = awkward, Jesse = well-adjusted and photogenic
This was before we got coffee so we were quite chilly!
I think that officially wraps up our San Francisco trip. It only took me three days, which means our trip was far too short for my liking. I want to be writing vacation recaps for a week or more. See ya tomorrow!
