Sounds disappointing but good to know the award dinner should probably be skipped in the future.

Last year's dinner in Seattle was fantastic (they served salmon, and I am not a fish eater).

I would definitely not skip it in the future.  I missed NHC this year, but in the previous ones I've been to Sean's dinners have been one of the highpoints.  As far as I can tell, this year was an anomaly.

I agree with Denny. Some of the dinners have been excellent start to finish. This may have a confluence of the concept and the hotel's ability to execute the concept for 2000.

Hoping for an excellent meal in 2014, that will highlight the local ingredients in MI.

No, I wouldn't say that.  In the past he has done a phenomenal job.  Last year in Washington everything was delicious.  This year was not his finest moment, but still far better than the usual convention hotel rubber chicken dinners.

I wish I could remember more of the details, but I was, uh, drinking.  It was great though.
various root vegetable mash, a mushroom bisque, and a sort of coffee/chocolate/donut trifle?

fixed that for you
Thanks.  I think I had it on the edit.  Photos always take me a couple attempts.
Anyway that was the dessert from last year.  That whole dinner was great.

Oh, man, that was SO good!  I wish they would have started the meal with it so I wasn't so full by the time they served dessert!

Thought the food was good and the beer pairings were superb. Really takes skill to match those flavors together.
