|Pilar Going Out to Sea|
Seared filet mignon with tuna carpaccio was the evening’s star, ably assisted by the earthy mushroom ragout,
We enjoyed Mr McDermott's wine pointers. Chef Fleming came out between courses to each table, explaining his pairings. I’d have been bragging if my food came out as well. He’s lower key than me.
While I didn’t try Hemingway’s Island Grill’s Caribbean menu selections, I have no doubt that they are of equally good quality as the wine dinner’s treats. It all comes from Chef Fleming's able hands.
