    Lunch 2023

    Leftover lamb stew - $4.99/lb!! I had to break down a semi-boneless leg to get that price but no big deal - and a small rack of head-on shrimp from Ecuador. Raia pinot from Oregon pairing

    Lunch 2023

    Mini penne with scallop pieces, garlic, parsley, butter, a shot of cream, but the kicker was a splash of comoz vermouth de Champery to finish. Veltliner pairing.

    Lunch 2023

    I ordered Tom kha with scallops and they gave me TWO !! So I had half left, bought a cooked lobster @ $10 and in it went. Scallops are $25/lb so I understand, and their coconut lemongrass broth is exquisite

    OMG, we eat well. Roving down this thread it is clear we know what we're doing... Anyway, I purchased a Vulcanus butane gas cartridge and banged out this tataki tuna.

    Dinner 2023

    Black cod came in today. I splurged on this fillet at about $22. Those are fennel fronds from our garden, on olive oil and vermouth de Champéry. I was going to make a white wine and parsley sauce, but it was so freaking good just like this I'm just going to eat it off the stove here, with some local new red potatoes. Pairing with Grüner Veltliner. Who's coming over...?

    Lunch 2023

    New England Gumbo? Bought fresh-picked okra from an African lady at the market and threw together this "gumbo" with linguiça, leftover grilled chicken thigh piri piri, some local bell peppers, onion, a can or so of fire-roasted diced tomatoes, and Lobster! Also dried thyme, bay leaves, File powder, Worcestershire and chipotle tabasco, chicken stock and some sugar. What I did not do is spend a half-hour cooking roux, but I'm definitely doing this again...
