Shrimp gumbo with bison chili with cilantro cream
Carlos Guia’s menu at the Country Club Grill just keeps getting better and better.
We stopped in the other day for our usual: a cup of shrimp gumbo, bison chili with jalapeno/cilantro cream, and a luscious-beyond-words veal porterhouse…all accompanied by a bottle of Paolo Barbieri’s equally luscious syrah. Between the meat, and the chili and the stew and the view, it seemed for an hour or so, that all was right with the world.
A good veal chop will do that to you.
As will a spicy gumbo, and a some buffalo chili with a mule’s kick behind it. Not to mention some beignets that could’ve come straight from N’Awlins.
And by the way, the creamed corn was so good it almost made a vegetarian out of us right then and there.
But then we took another bite of veal..and order was restored to the universe.
Just thought you’d like to know.
