The Spousal Unit (SU) and I wanted to go out for Thanksgiving Dinner this year, and decided to give Brix 25 a try. Although I had visions of a traditional turkey dinner, my Spousal Unit wanted more options. Turned out that Brix 25's interpretation of the turkey dinner contained stuff I don't really care for, so we both decided to give the prime rib a shot. I enjoyed mine a lot; It was served medium rare, as I had specified, and was a very nice hunk of meat. SU ordered hers "medium", but it was only slightly less rare than mine. Still tasty, but not perfect. Sides of "haricot verts" (French style green beans, y'all) were sauteed with onion and boar bacon, which gave 'em a unique flavor. We both liked the outcome. Mashed potatoes with a horseradish/pepper cream sauce was subtle. I really enjoyed a starter of "Poke", which is Ahi, marinated in soy, ginger, and other Hawaiian flavors; best version I've had on the mainland!
As a nod to the holiday, I tried Brix 25's version of pumpkin pie. Unfortunately, I have to rate it in the bottom third of all slices of pumpkin pie I have eaten; the crust was soggy and bland, the filling was likewise forgettable. On the other hand, the coffee was bold and delicious.
Service from start to finish was superb, which ensured Brix 25 got a "Very Good" rating overall.
By the way, I did benefit from SU's slight disappointment with her prime rib, as she brought a big piece of it home...which I appropriated for a magnificent prime rib, mushroom, and swiss cheese omelet this morning!
