We may have a new favorite restaurant.
As usual, we arrived at the Geezer Hour, i.e., before 5 pm, hungry because we'd skipped lunch. We were seated immediately off the main traffic path and introduced to the daily specials by our waiter, Joseph. I succumbed to the novelty of a Cranberry (!) Margarita, which Joseph actually re-made when I agreed that it would probably be better with salt. (It was!) We shared a shrimp cocktail and then dove into the Chef's Choice (a medley of sword fish, salmon, shrimp and scallops) with sauteed kale and a baked potato and a Filet Mignon with cheese drizzled broccoli and rice, respectively. Even though the portions were ample, we also treated ourselves to a shared apple cake (it was individual and muffin sized) with cinnamon ice cream and apple coulis, and a 30 year tawny port. With coffee. YUM.
We could perhaps have fed a family of four someplace else for the amount of the tab, but I was glad and grateful to have had the experience. I look forward to repeating it.
