Oh that's right-I whipped out the old Australian accent for this one! Turns out that the country from "down unda'" has a national day. That's right, January 26 is the declared day to celebrate all things Australian (snakebite anyone?). The Executive Sous Chef at The Bristol Lounge, Aaron Brooks-a native of Australia, is inviting you all in to help him celebrate!
Between January 24 and 30, 2011, have dinner at the Bristol and if the fancy suits you, select to take the journey to Aussie land with the chef by selecting to dine on the Ace Aussie Menu!
Menu consists of:
Shrimp off the Barbie!
Barbecued Shrimp, Tomato-Shallot Vinaigrette, Saffron and Black Kale
"Most Australians live near the water, so we always have fresh seafood. We love shrimp in particular, hence the common phrase: 'chuck a shrimp on the barbie.'"
"Fair Dinkum" Aussie Lamb
Roasted Rack of Lamb, Mushroom and Bacon Fricassee, Celeriac Purée, Lamb Shank Gravy
"The best, most flavorful lamb in the world."
Crispy Meringue, Mango Fruit Salad, Coconut Pearls, Spearmint
"Every Aussie mom makes this. Crispy on the outside, soft on the inside, it's a choice treat."" ~$65.00
