Perfect Pairings ~ Carlsbad10407245_529057117198041_5437215282674381857_nperfect-pairings

The long and short of it “run do not walk” to this restaurant. This was another instance of me being sceptical and being blown away. this was probably the best meal I have had this year.

Perfect Pairings is the brainchild of proprietor  Alex Morrison and Chef Aaron Gentry. The restaurant is based on all tasting menu, with beer, wine, or tea pairings. that is a bold move for North County and if it wasn’t so good it would border on crazy.

The choices are a 3, 4, or 6 course menu….I went with the 4 course and after the first plate wish I had gone with the 6 course.

The other interesting thing is they build the dishes back wards from the wine / beer. Instead of tasting the dish and pairing the wine they taste the wine and build the dish…that was very eye-opening.

Amuse

Amuse ~ Red and gold beet puree, Chevre, Za’ Atar, Aleppo Chili, Camut cracker

perfect start, fresh and flavorful

Opah Almandine

Moonfish Almondine ~ Meyer lemon zest polenta, fine herbs

Wine ~ Onx field Day ’12 ( SV Blanc / Viognier )

Moon fish or Opah rocks and is starting to show up a lot more now. the fish was perfectly cooked and seasoned as to not take away from the natural flavor.

Opah Almandine perfect

That is how fish should be cooked.

coq

Winter Squash Croquette ~ Anch Chile aioli

Wine ~ Mathis Grenache ’09

The croquette looks like it would be heavy but in fact were light and fluffy and paired perfectly with the aioli (pssst more aioli it is so good)

shrimpButter Poached Prawns ~ Brussel sprouts, fennel, watermelon radish.

Wine ~ Chamisal Estate Pinot Noir ’11

So it says prawns and there were two but I could not control myself and dug in before taking pictures. Perfectly cooked prawns with a great raw salad.

cheese boardChefs’ Selection Cheese Board ~ Truffle Brie, Nord Hollander, apple, apple and fig compote, locally baked bread.

Wine ~ Daou Cabernet Sauvignon  ’13

Bonus Wine ~ Quady Batch 88 dessert Wine NV

nice to see a real cheese board.

Oops before I forget, the service was stellar, professional without being stuffy again run do not walk.
