It’s been a few years since we celebrated our anniversary at W.A. Frost. It’s always a great experience so we decided to go back again this year. It was a fabulous experience! Come with me while I walk through our evening last night.
We always like to start the evening in the bar adjacent to the restaurant. It’s full of character and the bartenders are great. We started with gin gimlets. We ordered the Steamed Blue Mussels which are described thusly: coconut-green curry broth, cilantro, celery, Fresno chilies, grilled sourdough. They were excellent! And hubby had their trio of Pacific Coast Oysters and enjoyed them.
We then took our seats by the fireplace. I always love to sit by the fireplace. While it was a relatively warm winter day here in the twin cities, it’s always nice to sit by a warm fire. Here are two views from our table, one with the fire, one without:
Hubby decided that he really wanted the Chef’s Featured Charcuterie as he liked the way the bartender described it. It was head cheese accompanied by veggies and some secret sauce that he really enjoyed. He loved it!! Me, not so much.
As most fine restaurants do, W.A. Frost has their menu on the web and I had already decided that I was going to have their duck. But just days before the menu had changed and the duck was no longer an option. But I know their quality is always great so I kept an open mind and decided on the Truffle and Goat Cheese Risotto which is described: “beet marmalade, sunflower sprouts, pistachios, saba” and it was wonderful! I also had their Roasted Mushrooms on the side which were also delicious. Hubby had the Braised Pork Cheeks: “celery root purée, sauteed rapini, curry-apple relish”. He looked like he was in heaven it was so delicious.
It was another fabulous anniversary spent at one of the finest restaurants in St. Paul. I highly recommend W.A. Frost to anyone that enjoys a fine dining experience. The food is always excellent and the wait staff is superb. You won’t be disappointed!
