Tweet Nothings from Cherry Picks
Cherries may not be in season, but you wouldn't know it from looking at our inboxes. Restaurants around town are offering cherry-themed cocktails and dishes to get into the Cherry Blossom Festival spirit. Every year, the festival hosts Cherry Picks, a press preview for reporters like Fritz and me to check out the cherry-flavored offerings. We'll be twittering from the event this afternoon. 'Cause, you know, why blog when you can micro-blog?
* Julia is car-dancing to Beyonce. 3:55 p.m.
* Beeline to Mie N Yu table for cherry blossom cocktail: grape vodka, plum wine. Pleasantly sour and refreshing. 4:22 p.m.
* Champagne, sake, cherry sorbet: all great on their own, interesting in Palette's cocktail. While sipping, whacked in lip by clump of sorbet. 4:33 p.m.
* Tenpenh's sashimi comes topped with a rolled up wonton. Kinda like a really salty thick potato chip. In a good way. 4:35 p.m.
* Curiously, asia nine's special cherry dishes aren't asian. 4:36 p.m.
* Asia Nine is debuting a cherry caipirinha made with cherry-infused sake. So candy sweet my teeth hurt. 4:41 p.m.
* Tastes like a melted cherry popsicle, that one. Leave it alone. 4:43 p.m.
* Domaso hits it out of the park with a chocolate cherry napoleon. White chocolate mousse . . . Mmm. 4:47 p.m.
* Mysterious spongey substance tops Hudson's dark chocolate dessert. Whatever. Still ate it. 4:52 p.m.
