This meal originally took place on 1/20/10.

Palma started running prix fixe specials during the weekdays last January. Dave and I are a big fan of tasting menus and Palma was offering one for $35/person.

We thought it was funny that sometimes it was Chef Raffael offering the special...

and sometimes it was Chef Ronka.

We got Chef Raffael's tasting menu with the wine pairing. We went when the whole tasting menu thing was kind of new at Palma, and it appeared that the waitstaff was not briefed about the wine pairing option. They were a friendly bunch, but we had to keep reminding them to keep up with the pairings; Dave and I got a kick out of the fact that they were probably just pouring us whatever they felt like pouring, as it didn't seem like they were really clued in about the food. Regardless, it all tasted pretty good. We can't remember the specific dishes, but we do remember that there was some solid cooking and that we had a good time.
