A Land Remembered Supper Club Redux

land harrisFor some time now I’ve been referring to A Land Remembered as a very good steakhouse, but I really have to stop doing that. From now on I’m just going to call it a very good restaurant. The reason for the change in nomenclature is the herb-crusted sea bass I had there during our recent Scott Joseph’s Supper Club. It was, in a word, excellent. It was a thick fillet, so thick that cooking evenly through is quite difficult without drying out the outer part of the fish. But the kitchen managed that quite nicely. The sea bass was impossibly moist and tender, with big, white flakes. It was served with baby spinach and pine nuts and a reduction wine sauce. 

Don’t get me wrong, the steaks are still outstanding, too. The sea bass was followed by a New York strip that was grilled to a perfect medium-rare, served with Argentinian fries and a chimichurri with Chilean beans and corn stew.

The salad course was a whole campari tomato poached in olive oil, served with roasted peppers and greens topped with sliced Marcona almonds.

Dessert was a layered affair of mil hojas, a Spanish version of mille-feuille, the thin, flakey pastry, with smoky cheese, plum ice cream, toasted nuts and a honey drizzle. 

The wines were from South America and included a Montes Purple Angel to go with the sea bass (love red wines with fish) and the Montes Outer Limits CGM with the steak.

Once again, Harris Rosen was our special host for the evening, regaling us with stories of building the beautiful ShingleLand sea bass Creek Resort and of how he contacted author Patrick Smith about naming the restaurant for Smith’s book about Florida, “A Land Remembered.” 

This was the third in a series of Supper Clubs we’ve held with the folks at Rosen and with Harris Rosen in attendance. I fear we’re running out of venues. Maybe I can convince him to open a new place just so we can book another Supper Club.

Hey, maybe he can open up a great steakhouse.

A Land Remembered is at Rosen Shingle Creek,  9939 Universal Blvd., Orlando. It is open for dinner daily (call first; schedule can change due to occupancy). Here is a link to the restaurant’s website. The phone number is 407-996-3663.

I love the supper club idea! While I haven't been able to make it to the previous events, I would love to see these continue around Orlando.
