World’s Best Champagnes, Veuve Clicquot, Dinner, Ruth’s Chris Steak House, Berlin, MD, Eastern Shore, “Every Dinner With Friends Is A Feast For The Heart”

Tuesday night, I guess we should all be tucked in now that the days are shorter. It was the perfect night to go out to dinner. Four friends got together for a World’s Best Champagne Dinner at Ruth’s Chris Steak House in Berlin, Maryland. My Motto is Good Food, Will Travel and so we did.

This dinner was a celebration to two iconic women of their times. In 1805 at the age of 27 Madame Clicquot became one of the first businesswomen of modern times when she took over the business that was established in 1772.

Ruth Fertel bought in 1965 the Chris Steak House in New Orleans. It was against the advice of many. You do have to follow your instincts. The rest is history.

This dinner was well attended. If you like champagne you would have been able to enjoy the best with each entree.

We started with the scallop crudo. It had an asian pear relish. Crudo means raw. The pairing was Moet & Chandon Imperial.

The next was the roasted parsnip soup with mini buttered croutons and fresh turmeric foam. I would have liked it a bit warmer.

The soup was paired with the Brut Yellow Label.

The next course brought to the table was a Prime Skirt Steak. Smashed rosemary red potatoes and a soy and ginger chimichurri. A little kick the chimichurri gave. Veuve Clicquot Rose we all really enjoyed.

Great Filet Mignon with Blue Crab was our next presentation. Shareable potatoes Anna and asparagus frites. Medium rare for me, please. Paired with the elegant Veuve Clicquot La Grande Dame, 2015. ??

A sweet ending of coconut cake, a roasted pineapple cream filling, brulee pineapple, and passion fruit coulis. Use your imagination because I forgot to take the photo.?

It goes without saying that a dinner date with friends is therapy for the soul.

Some of the information for this post was taken from their website.

These two women are admired for having a great influence and example to future businesswomen. Cheers to Ruth and Madame Clicquot.
