As a yearly ritual, 2 of my girlfriends (Miss Carol being one of them) and I do Birthday dinners at a restaurant we have never been to. With our friend Meghan's Birthday tomorrow, we decided to try out June, which opened this past Spring and had great reviews. June did not disappoint (honestly, when am I ever disappointed with food?), we had a fantastic celebratory meal! Carol and I went with their burger that just sounded amazing on the menu and it was delicious! They even make their own ketchup using beets. Pretty interesting! The Birthday girl had the lamb neck, which I will admit I was a little skeptical of, but I tried a piece and its was tender, flavorful and yummy. After stuffing ourselves, we of course went for dessert, which was perhaps the best part of the meal. We ordered the Chocolate Brioche Bread Pudding. It was like nothing I have ever had and really didn't even seem like bread pudding, more like a really moist and warm cake. Even Carol liked it and she doesn't eat bread pudding! If you are in the Seattle area, I highly suggest trying June, even if it's just for the dessert!
Tonight I am off to my baking class. Perhaps they will teach us the secrets to bread pudding that is to die for?
