And...time's up! Chris Moto interviews that the rest of his dish is great, but he's worried that the chicken will be dry. Okay, here are the dishes. Ty made steamed clams in a Thai-style broth. Tim Love likes the sweetness of the clam. Heather made mango avocado salad with rock shrimp. Tim Love doesn't think it pairs with the tequila. Beverly made a cold-smoked green tea oyster. Tim Love likes the smokiness. Heather used the same tequila as Bev, and when Bev get a positive comment, Heather pulls a sour lemon face.
Sarah made fennel risotto with glazed scallop. Tim Love itches his nose when Sarah says that she used fennel pollen. Lindsay made salmon with fennel puree and brown butter sauce. It's very orange. Tim likes the skin on her salmon. Ed made bok choy lettuce wraps with lamb. As he describes his dish, Heather makes a total WTF face. She would be a terrible poker player. Tim just calls it a "very interesting pairing." Chris Moto made pan-seared chicken with lime vinaigrette. All these smears on the plates just look to me like the food slid across the plate because the waiter bobbled them on the way out. I don't get it. Tim thinks it's a "playful dish." Grayson made sesame cod with tequila brown sugar glaze. Grayson jokes that she never drinks tequila, because she's from Wisconsin, so she's a beer girl. Chris Hollywood made raw oyster with tequila tapioca pearl and sea salt air. Tim says that it makes him feel like he's at the beach. Dakota made lamb with medjool date pistou. I don't know what most of those words mean, but Tim says that the date is really sweet. As in sugary, not as in, "Dude, sweeeeet." Although I could see Tim Love saying that.
