Sorry for the mostly picture post. It was a hectic day, like all Fridays. However unlike most days this one had the most amazing weather with temperatures in the upper 70’s. Since "our restaurant" had the patio open you know where we went for dinner right?
Here is our evening.
It started with this bottle of Brunello since we were celebrating the opening of the patio. ;-) Come on, opening the patio is a sure sign of spring and something to be celebrated. Not to mention it was the first day of sandals and that is very important. We shared the Brunello with everyone, like always. ;-)
There were many others on the patio tonight but none of the regulars.
Like usual the guys had made things for us so that we didn’t have to order from the menu.
We started with a salad of baby spinach, Asian pear, cucumber, red onion and tarragon infused vinegar.
Then there was a crispy potato and pea pastry.
This was followed by the most beautiful sesame crusted tofu over jasmine rice and a salad of scallions, carrots, cucumbers, shitake mushrooms, wakame and a spicy Thai dressing. Ian is good too good to us.
We were still hungry and asked for a pizza.
Stephanie (our server) made us a whole pizza with arugula and tomato dressed with lemon and truffle oil.
Ian made us a roasted veggie pizza with pesto.
After all this food we were full. Gee, I wonder why? LOL
Here is the restaurant which we clearly had closed down like we often do. Good thing they like us here since when we come in we stay a long time.
Sorry for the short post. I should be able to get caught up tomorrow. I hope you had as nice a Friday as we did. Talk to you tomorrow, or I should say later today. ;-)
