This is a long delayed post. It's about my birthday dinner, which was back in early November when we were in Asheville. We went to Posana. We had reservations for 6 pm and were seated right away. It's cozy and romantic, lots of wood. I had was a terrific birthday meal. Here's what we ate/drank:
SP's Leaf Peeper (bourbon) and Domaine Paul Buisse Touraine Sauvignon Blanc for me.
Appetizer: Fairytale Pumpkin Beignets (confit pork shank, chamomile honey butter). Yum! I wasn't sure how pumpkin beignets and pork would work together, but eating a bite of beignet with a shred of pork was delicious.
Appetizer: Siano Burrata (plum mostarda, basil-honey oil, Spanish sea salt, focaccia). Bread, cheese, olive oil, mustard. Yum. The focaccia was really good. I smeared lots of burrata on top and dipped it in the mustard and olive oil. I would go back just for this. I ate it all, which means I was a little full for my entree.
I was starting to get my evil sinus infection, so I only had the one glass of wine. SP ordered a second cocktail: Daily Grind (bourbon, espresso). I had a sip and it was soooo good! I wish I'd been able to order one all to myself.
SP's entree: Sunburst Farms Trout (curry pumpkin, cauliflower tabouli, golden raisins, cashew, pickled onion, herb puree). He said it was delicious.
My entree: Seared Scallops (lemon-pumpkin seed jam, roasted fall vegetables, leek fondue, bacon). I had the lemon-pumpkin seed jam on the side because our server thought there was some garlic in it. The scallops were excellent.
After dinner beverage: Cappuccino.
Shared dessert: S’mores Torte (chocolate cake, toasted marshmallow, graham cracker, honey cinnamon meringue, salted vanilla ice cream). It was rich, dense, chocolaty, but so very good.

We both enjoyed the food & drink at Posana. Our server was friendly, offered suggestions, answered questions. The meal was nicely paced. We'd definitely go back next time we're in Asheville.
