Judge Jeffrey seemed to swallow his New York strip whole without offering me the least little bite! Liberal he may be for a jurist, but he's one ravenous bastard at the dinner table. Brenda the temptress allowed me a portion of her creamy Yukon Gold potatoes, grown in the garden just behind Nix, I'm told, and here whipped with the addition of Boursin cheese. Magnificent stuff.
We had a dessert orgy at meal's end, swapping several amongst us, including a cheesecake, a chocolate-Kahlúa mousse cake, a crème brûlée, and the aforementioned bananas Foster. The last two are actually made on the premises, so it's no surprise they're the best of the bunch. Overall, I would most certainly patronize Nix again, as the superlative items on the bill of fare outweighed the mediocre ones. And since this review will appear just prior to Xmas day, I can safely say that for one part of Phoenix, St. Nix has already arrived.
