I would like a dozen oysters, two of every local variety possible. And some pinot grigio to go with it.

Seared and raw scallops, dressed in olive oil and freshly ground black pepper.

Two ricotta gnudi, flavored with pecorino and parmesan.

A trio of thick cut fried beet chips, smeared with gorgonzola dolce.

Seared beef rib, topped with anchovy butter, caramelized onions, and sauteed mushrooms.

Chiz and charcuterie plate

Finally, cream puffs with espresso and salted caramel whipped cream.

BUT, I'll settle for a couple of dormice à la romaine: roasted, honey glazed, and sprinkled with sesame seeds. And maybe some pickles.
