Millenium Round 2 in San Francisco, California

Well, Ben and I finally made it back to Millennium for the second time after having tried restaurants of a similar par in New York (Pure and Candle 79) aaaaaand we still like it! Still love it, actually. This time we decided to splurge on the 5 course chef’s tasting menu ($72/person) AND opted to do the wine pairing (an additional $28/person) since we had such a good experience with the tasting menu at Pure. I would definitely recommend the tasting menu and I think it’s well worth the money. It’s nice to go and pick what you want from the menu and get a big portion of it, but it’s also super fun to get to try a bunch of different things, be surprised, and make a whole experience out of it. As far as the wine pairing goes, I wasn’t blown away by it since I’m not a huge wine fan or connoisseur–but Ben thought that it improved his taste buds and all that so he really enjoyed it.

Anyway, here’s what we ate! I tried to get descriptions of some things from their website but their menu changes so much I couldn’t find everything.
