    Carte Blanche - June 2021

    Post-pandemic group dining has changed a little bit but still roaring on at CB. The venue has moved outside in a giant square table formation (previously the semi-circle inside) which actually allows for more interaction with the entire group rather than just the people to your right and left. There were sixteen of us around the table, five-course dining and optional wine-pairing.

    I'm just going to blanket this review with the statement that everything was delicious. Wine-pairing prevents me for detailing each dish LOL.

    We started with an amuse bouche of celery soup in a shot glass and two bitteballen (fish).

    Moved on to Salmon Tartar...

    Veal cheek...

    Sadly, I've reached the photo limit so no veal cheek for you!

    Two "mains" - beef tenderloin and then a grouper dish:

    And then dessert (ice cream and a mocha creme brûlée):

    All-in-all a great night out. For the uninitiated, it's approximately a three-hour commitment (6:30-9:30) and is definitely one of the best dining experiences on the island.

    I thoroughly enjoyed our one visit to Carte Blanche. Tom got a little itchy as our dinner lasted a good four hours. The food was fabulous. With the wine pairing, it’s an expensive night out but totally worth it.

    More food porn... thank you! I can't imagine sitting still for a 3 hour dinner... or even staying in the same place for 3 hours!
    A little nonsense now and then is relished by the best of men!
