Our good friend and groomsman Jason (@jkrobby) and our friend Kate had never been to Heidi’s 2.0 before, so we were able to secure reservations through the wonderful sommelier, James Parsons, at Heidi’s. As always, Stewart Woodman and the staff at Heidi’s delivered a great dining experience. James, the sommelier, recommended a great Washington Cabernet that paired well with the meat entrées we ordered, beef tenderloin, lamb shank and short ribs. The starters, complements of the chef, were the eggs Bennie and pickled beef tongue. I preferred the tongue to the egg as did Jason, meanwhile I think the ladies preferred the play on eggs. Jenny ordered the asparagus soup with crab, Kate went with the salad, Jason had the Beets 2.1 and I went with the Shefzilla surprise. The surprise that night was a delicious pasta in tomato sauce with white sardines and tripe. Basically everything I love all together, surprise! I wish I had ordered another Shefzilla surprise, but then I remembered that we had ordered a couple sides of the pappardelle, which as our server Ariel so appropriately stated, “is a slice of heaven.” Dessert was the nitro chocolate mousse as we were chased off the patio about 2 hours later by the Minnesota mosquitoes. Another wonderful evening of food, wine and friends @heidismpls that makes us keep coming back for more!
