For the month of May, Harris’ is offering a prix fixe Silver Anniversary Dinner for $55. The menu includes amuse-bouche of Chilled Vichyssoise , salad, entree and dessert, with an intermezzo of lemon sorbet. This is a fantastic deal for Harris. We started with the $14 half dozen oysters. I always forget to ask what type of oyster Harris’ serves but they are always fresh, full belly and juicy. They make a Classic Caesar salad with anchovies, garlic and raw eggs; very creamy and fragrant but slightly overdressed.
The little freebies made it extra special like the usual offer of salmon mousse, crackers AND Acme bread. The chilled Vichyssoise tasted like chilled clam chowder with a grainy texture, simply delicious. Lemon sorbet as a intermezzo a nice way to cleanse the palate before a rich dish.
I always order the Filet Rossini it has everything I love on one plate. The filet a la carte is already $46. A medium-rare filet mignon with a large piece of grill foie gras then smothered with thick black truffle cabernet sauce; a side of baked crusty cheesy scallops potatoes too. I carve my filet with my eyes closed whiffing in the delectable vapors.
Dessert of Key lime pie and Opera cake is pretty standard. The key lime pie has the tiniest ginger aftertaste it reminded of a Chinese dessert. $55 well spent.
