Day 6 Dinner: Millenium!

Wow.  This was soooooo long ago now.

So we spent the day shopping around central San Francisco.  We'd booked into Millennium the day before.

It is probably the swankiest vegan restaurant we've ever been to.  Actually, it reminded me of the restaurants in New York you see in Woody Allen movies.  Of course, we felt weird about taking photos of the interior, so there's just the foods....

We decided on the tasting menu.  We started with a pate and bread thingy:

I found the description of the menu from the Facebook page, but it didn't include the pate...
Fall Harvest Menu

brik pastry dough, Kuri squash, grilled seitan & dried apricot filling, beluga lentil & tomato tagine, sauteéd fall greens, Fresno chile harissa, cucumber-mint raita, cinnamon-almond dust
Which I had:

We added fries ('cause we were pigs and on holiday damnit):

Chocolate Layer Cake
coffee bean cream, chocolate ganache, Lucky Hand Black Lager caramel, peanut brittle, malt chip ice cream

I have to say that my favourite of the meal was the dessert.  It was so good that I didn't notice the coffee in it (Cam loves coffee, I can't stand the smell of the stuff).  We'd definitely recommend going to Millenium if you're in San Francisco!
