Mr. F and I had a fun date night tonight! We had a delicious dinner at Blue 13 in River North and let’s just say, it was celebrating us knowing each other for 10 years! We had been to Blue 13 this summer and it was so great that we were surprised we hadn’t returned yet. We were also excited to try their new fall menu.I had a Moscow mule to start and it came in a chilled copper cup.We also had the soup of the day, Celery root velouté, with ciabatta, beet, pearl onion, chestnut, and apple puree. I took a picture of the garnish before all of the soup was poured into the bowl, but here’s a better picture of the soup from Twitter.
For dinner, I had the amazing pork cheeks with sauerkraut, bacon, fingerling potatoes, creme fraiche, apple puree and a few other goodies.Mr. F had the short ribs with whole grain mustard, but I wasn’t able to get a picture before he dug in. They were even better than my pork cheeks and also had stunning presentation!
