So anyway, I was pretty bummed out that they closed Tastings and decided to 'go casual' across the street with a new restaurant that sounded like an upscale pub - we have like, a million of those here, people! But the menu sounded interesting, and we had to give it a try. It was so much better than expected!
It helps that my parents know how to go all out: limited-production ridiculous wine, oysters and moules frites and complimentary foie gras (because it 'matched so well with the wine you have to try it'). I had the sushi; best hamachi I've ever had. Not only did Larkin eat her organic spaghetti dinner and cheddar bunnies I brought, she also devoured anything else I put in front of her: sea bass! pommes frites with garlic aioli! avocado maki! foie gras! She will eat anything. She gets mad if she can't try everything. Sorry, baby, no $150 Sea Smoke Chardonnay for you. Boo hoo!
Anyway, it was insane. We've been watching our pennies lately, so this was an especially huge treat.
