Wine-lovers haven

It had been a couple of years since the Mainstrasse (Covington KY) restaurant, Bouquet, made it into my dining rotation. Last weekend, two of my friends and I had a delicious dinner and some wonderful wine there. All three of us enjoyed our entrees (photos here), cocktails, and a bottle of marvelous zinfandel.
We each started with a salad, then our entrees were (top to bottom) the evening's special fish (paddlefish) on top of a hearty bed of barley studded with chanterelle mushrooms and leeks (two of my fave ingredients); sea scallops; and rack of lamb.
The only false note was dessert -- we split a warm brownie almost ruined by off-tasting spearmint ice cream. But when we complained, the waiter brought us a big dish of his favorite ice cream flavor, chocolate cinnamon, which made up for it.
Of course, meals like these don't help with losing those couple of pound (see previous posting)....
