Dinner with Friends at 82 Queen
She-Crab soup was epicurean delight. It was lighter than other ones I have had, and did contain the roe whose flavor was brought out by the sherry. My scallop dish was indicative of the treasures that the Charlestonian shore has to offer. The scallops were perfectly seared, succulent, and flavorful...more than anything, they were fresh! Two large scallops sat on a bed of bacon risotto and the plate was drizzled with a red pepper coulis. To sweeten an already perfect meal was the creme brulee - the custard was light and the glassy sugar topping was just burned enough. Served with strawberries and homemade whipped cream, it was a great finale to a magical night with friends.
