Highlight 120: Group eating - Restaurant: Ray's on the River

J threw a holiday party for the company at Ray's On the River this year. Normally, I am not a big fan of dinner party food as it's almost always overcooked and often look old from early preparation. But Ray's proved me wrong on this point. Maybe it's because the choices were rather simple, roasted chicken, which can wait, prime rib, which was held at a perfect tenderness, and salmon fillets that took the longest, but were baked to order. All were preceded by a salad that was satisfyingly large and very fresh.

I asked for the prime rib and was startled by the humongous portion. I had so much leftover, I took only the meat home and it still weighed a pound!

I followed the heavy main with the lighter mousse cake (the other option being the cheesecake). I can't say that it blew my socks off, but it was fluffy and pleasant, which was exactly what I needed.

During dessert, the employees took part in a white elephant gift exchange that saw a nice bottle of bourbon make the rounds across the room. J used the money that would have gone into a corporate gift for him for a good and large bottle of champagne to open when the economy comes back. It may take quite a long time, but a wonderful thought nonetheless. It was nice to see people enjoy themselves again this time of the year.
