Long Awaited Post: Park Avenue Autumn with Ryan Boyd!

So what else would I be doing on a Friday summer night in Manhattan? BLOGGING OF COURSE. With the television on the show ABDC (America’s Best Dance Crew) whilst cleaning the bathroom, I realized that it is about time for me to blog. Clearly I have not achieved my goal of blogging once a month but I guarantee you that every post I make is meant to entertain…myself. HAHA.

Accenture has provided me with meeting fellow foodies from all across the USA. I was lucky enough to meet Ryan Boyd, a friendly Texan that is very into eating. He educated me in the different types of BBQ and I talked incessantly about the great food in Manhattan. Of course he called me up when he came to NYC and offered to treat me to a delicious dinner with him and his girlfriend. My pick: Park Avenue [insert season here] - Autumn.

They are known to change their decor and menu every single season. I remember that the menu had a special section for MUSHROOMS. That’s right – just to highlight this lovely fungus that is most fresh in the autumn. I was thrilled to be invited to this dinner.
Warning: I apologize ahead of time if I don’t list things properly or if I can’t even identify the dish at all. This is a LONG awaited post (something like 1 year old??) so forgive me!

This was the chef’s starter. What it is you ask? I cannot remember, but I do recollect my feeling towards it. Please sir, can I have some more?

We dabbled in bread. Drrooooool. My weakness…carbs. But oh are they delicious…we are talking about flat bread sticks, multi-grain bread, and muffin-like rolls. “Gimme gimme more, gimme more…”

And onto appetizers! We ordered:

Local Diver Scallops with Lemongrass Broth and Red Delicious Apples. This dish highlights aspects of autumn and combining fall’s fresh ingredients with seafood.

Unidentifiable dish #1:

I think this might be an appetizer or main entree. Either way I can’t remember…however, doesn’t it look so pretty?

Speaking of mains:

I believe I got the Dover Sole with fine herbes brown butter. It was delicious and eaten in a matter of minutes.

The side dish that stands out the most:

Broccoli & Cheetos! Yes, I am serious. They use REAL cheetos for this side. Did you know that Cheetos were invented by accident? This dish probably was invented by accident, too! I was really surprised but I really liked it. It gave the broccoli a pleasant crunch.

And a meal is not complete until you finish it off with dessert!

The chocolate cube and…

Cranberry almond cake with Cranberry brulee and toasted almond ice cream. What is in the chocolate cube? I can’t remember. How were the desserts? That I do remember…and they were gobbled up in a matter of minutes. Two thumbs up!

All in all, one of my most memorable meals…thanks to Ryan Boyd! You rock! I would highly recommend going to Park Avenue [season], and I am more than happy to accompany anyone if desired.
