Celebrating our anniversary last night we went to The Prime Rib, an outstanding, if sort of old and stuffy, restaurant in Baltimore.  Waiters with tuxedos (and masks). We split a caesar salad-split Brussels sprouts- My wife had a pork chop which was excellent (I got a taste).  I had steak au poivre, which was very good.  Cooked perfectly and served with a roasted head of garlic and shaved raw horseradish.

She started with a pomegranate margarita.  I started with a glass of Veuve Cliquot and then switched to a 2014 Rioja Reserva.  Can’t tell you what label. Restaurant is pretty dark, and I forgot my reading glasses.

At another table a youngish couple.  He had a massive slab of red meat.  Drinking a white wine. I thought about calling 911 on him but resisted.  His female companion, dressed nicely with a good amount of skin showing, had numerous tattoos including lots of numbers and  letters. She looked like a telephone book and was only marginally more shapely.

Thanks for the smile, and congratulations! 

Wild sockeye salmon rubbed with Moroccan spices, atop a bed of chana with black chickpeas, tamarind and sweet potato.  Paired with a 2013 Kerner Kabinett from Pfalz, Germany.  The salmon was previously frozen.  Fresh wild salmon has made a few brief appearances here in San Diego this month, but seems elusive compared to other years.  I will wait for the price to drop below $30/lb before sampling.

Ate with some friends at a local Italian place.  Good to see people after a year and a half or so.  My wife and I split a roasted beet appy, and she had a decidedly non-Italian salad with salmon on top, while I had eggplant parmesan.  Mostly about the company. We had a bottle of a Banfi Chianti Classico, 2018.
