A Perfect Night at the Symphony

Even though it was a disastrous night outside, what with the wind blowing freezing rain into our faces as we fought our way downtown, it was incredibly cozy sitting by a roaring fire surrounded by four friends up on the 9th floor of Orchestra Hall in the Private Dining Room.
The champagne flowed, conversation sparkled and the scallops were succulent in their parmesan parsley crust, sitting in a puddle of sweet orange sauce.

We felt lucky to be there, our friend had connections to some of the best seats in the house, a private box on the second level, 20 feet from the stage where the CSO played Stravinsky's Firebird and the violin soloist played with such poignancy it brought tears to my eyes.

Thank you John and Stacy, for a night we'll remember for years!

Those scallops look AMAZING! i will attempt to cook a lot of things, but those should be left to professionals!

Oh baby, believe me they WERE. I was dismayed, however, when I saw there were only three on the plate. "What? Was this an appetizer portion?" went through my ended up being perfect because they were so rich. My eyes are always bigger then my stomach. :)
