Wardrobe Dinner at The Painted Pony

For the past week and a half, I have had the great pleasure and privilege of working on a Disney movie called “Guide To Life” in the wardrobe department with some wonderful women who I am glad to call friends!  The first few days that I worked were in the Salt Lake area and then this last week we were down in St George and our boss (the costume designer) Carolyn took us out on Wednesday night for a fabulous dinner at “The Painted Pony” in downtown St George.  The food was both delicious and beautiful and all the ladies were patient and accommodating as I took pictures of all their meals to share with you guys so thank you Carolyn for the wonderful dinner and thank you Kacie, Barbara, Jacquie, Shantell and Natalie for letting me take pics of your dinners before you even got to have a bite!  If you are ever in St George, then check out this restaurant!  It is beautiful inside and the food is delicious as well as beautiful too.  This restaurant is one which also takes advantage of local produce and uses fruits and veggies from it’s own organic garden.  (These types of restaurants are rapidly becoming my favorites!)  And now, on to the food!

Beet Salad - sherry vinaigrette, goat cheese beet gateau, honey, walnuts

Salmon Salad

Chopped Caesar - garlic croutons, parmesan chips

French Onion Soup - served in a giant hollowed out onion

Bacon Wrapped Duck - apple stuffing, celery root puree, cider reduction

Rack of New Zealand Lamb - sweet potato and fennel gratin, quince chutney, mint sauce

Butternut Hazelnut Raviolis - sage brown butter, mushroom ragout, preserved lemon, parmesan

Oozy Gooey Chocolate Cake - house made peppermint ice cream

Vanilla Bean Creme Brulee

Coconut Key Lime Pie - lime custard tart with coconut graham cracker crust

Coconut Tapioca Martini - chocolate croquettes

I had the French Onion Soup, the Chopped Caesar Salad and the Vanilla Bean Creme Brulee, as well as bites of the lamb and duck which were both to die for especially the duck!  So, if you are ever in St George, check out The Painted Pony which is open for lunch as well!
