Each Meal a Gem at Amen Street

February 22, 2011

I encountered a delicious treat at Amen Street last week and had a chance to sample some of the freshest fish and most succulent gnocci I have ever had the privilege of trying. Salmon belly is a beautiful dish to behold: grapefruit pink and shiny with moisture. Chef Stephen Ollard prepared the salmon by curing […]

House-made Desserts at Amen Street

January 13, 2011

After something as wholesome as Shrimp and Grits, it’s just natural to want something equally as pleasant and twice as sweet to finish off the meal. Luckily, Amen has redone their dessert menu and outdone themselves with a rustic selection of desserts with some southern personality. The Classic bread pudding is cobbler like, with a […]

From Scratch: Homemade Cheese Plate with Fresh Fig and Raspberry Reduction

December 28, 2010

A bright gem in the center of the Anne Amie Wine Dinner was the delicious homemade cheese and fresh fig served with 2009 Anne Amie Pinot Gris. This is one of those tasty instances where the food is sweeter than the wine. The nectar tartness of the fig pressed against the sour raspberry and fell […]

Local Taste: Triggerfish with Oyster and Leek Fondue

December 26, 2010

For something really tantalizing, a creamy fondue spiked with the signature saltiness of local oysters really did the trick. The Triggerfish was served with a 2009 Anne Amie Cuvee A Amrita that was warm and sparkly. Clean and bitter Amrita set against the flaky and creamy Triggerfish made for a memorable dish that cleaned up […]

Big Flavor: Red Porgy with Garlic, Tomatoes and Capers

December 21, 2010

The second course of the Wine Dinner featured Red Porgy paired with a 2008 Anne Amie Cuvee A Muller Thurgau. I was lucky enough to be sat with Mark Marhefka of Abundant Seafood and supplier of the fish for the evening. He gave me a little background info on this Red Porgy: it is classified […]

Comfort Food: Scallops with Blue Cheese Risotto

December 14, 2010

Amen Street knows their seafood and this was evident in the opening course of the Wine Dinner. Course one was a Seared Jumbo Scallop served with Bacon and Buttermilk Blue Cheese Risotto. Truly mouthwatering, this buttery scallop and risotto were cleaned from the tongue by the berry tones of the 2008 Anne Amie Cuvee A […]

Last Tuesday’s Wine Dinner was truly spectacular! The food, the wine, the staff and the atmosphere were right on point and mumblings are circulating about planning another. We are compiling a full gallery of photos from the night, but here’s a few tasty ones to tease your senses! Course five finished us off with a […]

Perfect Pairings

December 5, 2010

Upon entry to Amen Street, I always feel welcomed and everyone else seems pleased to have me there as well. The bar echoes with laughter and sparkling discussion. Only a handful of people populate the high-ceilinged space on this chilly afternoon, but the warmth generated by the kitchen and the conversation fills the room. The […]
