Excellent...enjoy a roasted pigeon with a Rose.


Lots of rose (and I mean lots, goes down like water!), but no pigeon. However, we had an excellent meal at L'Epuisette, in one of the most beautiful settings I've ever eaten in. Highly recommended to anyone who finds themselves in Marseille...

Did you visit the Rothko chapel?


On a somewhat related note, we saw an interesting Rothko exhibition at the Portland OR Museum of Art last weekend. Not many pieces-- around 50, I think-- but wonderfully arranged in chronological sequence to show his artistic progression. It was extremely interesting to see the shifts from early realism through abstraction to his innovative melding of colour and canvass. I had no idea that he had masterfully created works very different from the colour palettes for which he is best known.

Great quote from Rothko that I saw at the exhibition: "Silence is so accurate." Smile

Sounds like a great exhibit, Seaquam.

Congratulations! Favorite places for a celebration- El Meson and The Old House

Thanks Board, we are having lunch at The Inn of the Anasazi, tonight a Ch-briand from Allen Bros. Going to the Eldorado/old house later in the week. But tonight for celebration with the steak an '82 Las Cases, 91 Heitz Martha's, '79 d'Yquem.......it's kind of like being at Board-o's house.
A lot of people rave about The Inn of the Anasazi. We only ate there once and everything was good, but I expected a bit better, especislly considering the price. Based on everything I read, our experience was not the norm.

I'm sure your in-laws know lots of excellent places, but the best Mexican food we had out west was at La Choza.
The next couple of days will be busy, so I will say goodbye for now to my many forum friends as we head to Italy this week.

I'm excited to revisit past favorite ( Ostetia di Passigano) restaurants and to explore new ones as well. ( thanks Longboarder) We also are trying a couple of new hotels for the first time in several visits.

The weather is still showing mid 70's to mid 60's for lows, which will be perfect.

I found a couple of new art galleries also, and always seeking out new art.

I never book many winery visits while visiting Italy, but have planed an afternoon at Ornellaia again. Like Longboarder, I had the chance to taste the entire Masseto portfolio two visits ago, and just could not pass this up. We only have two other visits booked.

Ciao for now.

Very jealous. Returning to Italy is the plan for our next big trip. Have a great time and post notes on the food!
