Last night, excellent Mexican at El Catrin in the Distillery District:
Croquetas de Langosta
Snapper ceviche in lime with smoked ancho chili ashes
Roasted plantain with braised beef and garlic-serrano aioli
Tacos Pastor

Although we did not BYO, it is available @ $35 corkage. They also have about 200 tequilas on their list if that's your thing.
turkey meatballs, tomato sauce, sauteed vegetables. All cooked in a sauce pan over gas.
We had lost power, but the gas stove can be lit with a match.
Washed down with a bottle of I Baldini White Label, Tuscany. It's a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese. 2009. (Sanderson gave it 93 points)
Power came on just before we ate. It was off for about 6 hours today, and was off between 4 PM Thursday and 5:00 PM on Friday.
Last night - caprese with sliced peaches and heirloom tomatoes (great Riesling pairing, btw) followed by pork loin roast and Brussels sprouts on the grill. I marinated the pork in olive oil, red wine vinegar, mustard bbq sauce, garlic, fresh cracked pepper and herbs de Provence.
