Parsnip soup. Before partaking at Canlis, I never thought I'd be associating the phrase ""good enough to lick the bowl clean"" with parsnip soup. But I did (both associate the phrase and indeed lick the bowl clean)...and I would do it again.
Peter Canlis prawns. Another dish in which I was wishing I had more bread in order to sop up all the phenomenal sauce that was left after I'd inhaled the delicate-tasting shrimp (er, prawns).
Nebraska Filet Mignon. Who knew I had an affinity for anything related to Nebraska? Hmmm. Classically prepared and delicious, my only beef (haha) was that the carrot puree actually slightly overshadowed/impinged on my enjoyment of pure beefy taste. I guess I am a beef purist.
Forest mushrooms: Anything that combines sherry and garlic is a win for me.
Dessert? Yes, please! Mille-Feuille: Bananas, banana caramel and dark chocolate - it was like taking Chunky Monkey to a brand-new, sophisticated adult level. Sinful.
Both the views and the staff service are stellar.
