Last night we attended a 30th birthday party for our friend T. Her husband, M, organized a big group dinner for her at Falcon in Hollywood. The place is very chic with lots of dark wood, simplistic furniture, and candlelight. We had a room reserved just for our group, which is where we enjoyed dinner and then after-dinner bottle service.
Dinner started with a simple green salad with balsamic vinegrette (delish) and then we had our choice of either wild salmon, chicken breast or petite filet mignon. Jim and I both chose the chose the filet (as did most of the group), which was accompanied with parmesan puree, crisped onions, a parmesan chip and port reduction. The food was really good! The steak was cooked perfectly and the port reduction was a sweet and savory and complemented the steak nicely. Those who ordered the fish and chicken also had good things to say about their meals. For dessert, we were presented with a mini molten chocolate cake and a small scoop of ice cream -- delicious.
