Don't tell me you only drank water with that fine meal!


Just one more sip.

Grilled shrimp tacos with shredded cabbage, pico de gallo, queso fresco and a little "baja" sauce we made up. We decided to fry the corn tortillas for a change - a little smelly, but they sure are tasty!


Cheers!

At Papillon on Front last night: steak tartare. While it was enjoyable, the pork cheeks ordered by a table-mate were just amazing.

BTW, after some initial confusion, it was confirmed that as of last week, Papillon now allows BYOW with a $25 corkage. I would not rule this place out as a potential venue for a future TWC event.

Roasted wild sockeye (frozen, but given to us by the friend who caught it) with a glaze of jalapeno jelly, cilantro, lime zest, scallion and butter, parm risotto and roasted carrots.


Cheers!

Pizza night again yesterday. This time I did a roasted garlic base with a little drizzle of marinara and topped with zucchini, red onion, diced fresh chilies, apple wood smoked bacon and good mozzarella. Very tasty.

Wow, just had this wine at our annual tasting for members at the club and this wine was poured for only certain people from under the table. Awesome wine from Priorat and Carignane, Grenache and Syrah. My wine rep said it was too young but boy it was showing well to me. We can get it for $32 Wholesale so I was thinking about putting it on by the glass as a feature for $15 a glass. Curious on your thoughts of the wine as far as aging potential and where the wine is at now for you.

Shin Thompson is back for six dinners between now and 12/1 at the old Bonsoiree space, before he opens his own place in February. The menu includes some of the Bonsoiree classics, but also a couple of preview dishes from the new place. Tonight's the first of the six. We're going with friends from our tasting group, but I know M/M dantherhonefan will be there as well. The menu:

Amuse of Sashimi

Duck Confit & Mushroom Duxelle cooked with Cognac, 63 Degree Farm Egg, Toast Points, Black Truffle, Fines Herbs

Scallop Motoyaki!

Kabocha Squash and Fuji Apple Soup, Roasted Corn, Seared Trout, Lobster Oil, Crispy Leeks

Crispy Skin Suzuki, Japanese Scallion Soy Beurre Blanc, Pearls of Sweet Potato & Grilled Asparagus

60 Hour “Zabuton” Wagyu Short Rib, Pommes Frites with Nori Dust and Sea Salt, Karashi “Punch in the Face” Mustard, Chasseur Sauce

Matcha Cake Napoleon, Chocolate Sauce and Macerated Fresh Berries

Delmonico has this nice-looking menu going on tonight for quite a bargain, in my book...

It's all simple proteins and veggies for the next five weeks as I focus on dropping a few through dietary Ketosis.

I'd add a sad face emoticon but I got here by enjoying the stuff I need to avoid for a while, so I guess it all balances out.

Last night I cheated a bit and bought a jar of Rao’s marinara sauce and added some sweet Italian sausage from the local butcher. Tossed with some campanelle pasta and good parmigiano and a tasty dinner was ready in less than 30 mins. The Rao’s sauce was actually pretty good.

My wife recently discovered Rao's sauce and find it to be one of the better sauces from a jar.

Same here, VB, but they sure are easier to find than lose.


Just one more sip.

I saw a bottle of this last night looking for a wine.

How was it, redknife?

Hope to see you again, soon.
