Next up was this soul-warming cauliflower soup. The chili oil drizzled on top had a hint of cardamom and the fried shiso leaf added a nice textural dissonance. Beautiful stuff.
I am a sucker for anything in phyllo dough, and this brik pastry full of squash and greens and other incredible magic was simply divine. Refined, yet homey, I really felt the love in this dish... and that is, after all, the point on Valentine's Day, right? Well, that and CHOCOLATE
This dessert was cuh-razy good, y'all. Salted chocolate layer cake = amazing enough, but with chocolate chipotle ice cream? I was in heaven. It was the best way to end our romantic meal, and I'm already looking forward to our next occasion for dining at Millennium.
Have a great post-valentine's weekend, everyone, and stay tuned for more Bay Area eats soon!
