    After Zuni tonight, I’m on my own tomorrow (husband has a work dinner). I’m thinking I may try the Liholilo Yacht Club as a walk in. Loving the restaurants here and looking forward to Napa tastings.

    The bites of the perfectly cooked chicken that was moist and tasty and well seasoned mixed with the spice of the mustard greens and the juice soaked bread with currents and pine nuts.... amazing. I’m glad we went.

    Oh man what a meal. My husband and I literally didn’t look or talk to each other for 10 minutes after the chicken arrived. We started off with a bunch of local oysters I neglected to photograph. We split a bottle of their house Pinot Noir, the chicken and a half order of their fries:

    Thanks! It was a huckleberry bordelaise sauce. My husband loved it and it’s one of their best sellers.
  5. United first class from EWR to SFO. not a thing I’d eat. Pork and fish and ricotta ravioli with beets? I grabbed a burger at Wanderlust in the aiport and slept.

    My main was the lobster from the seafood selection. My husband has the duck and loved it. My main was excellent. We drank a Pinot Nior from Williamete Valley with these dishes. I was FULL. But I loved this because I can’t eat a lot but I love being able to eat more than one dish. My husband finished with the chocolate soufflé and they gave me a birthday passion fruit cake/ sorbet. It was good. I’d go back.

    We didn’t take a picture of the risotto because it was too good. I was angry at myself when the table next to me asked to take a picture because they’d forgotten. I had the Dungeness crab salad from the appetizer menu. It was good. Not great. My husband had the tuna from the seafood menu:

    @blue_dolphin WOW! It all looks so good! This makes me even more excited to dine there in a few weeks.
  10. Also what type of scene are you looking for? There are tons of places filled with people in their early to mid 20s with super cheap happy hours.

    Dinner 2019

    @Kim Shook can you share the recipe for the shrimp burgers? They look delicious! I loved Callie’s biscuits when I was in Charleston. I may order some from GoldBely.
  12. I’m sorry, I’m probably reading this wrong. But are you saying you have a full sized oven that reaches 400 degrees F in five minutes?

    Super Bowl 2019 what's on your menu?

    We get pretty good sushi here. I usually order it from here: https://www.sushiloungenj.com/ and I usually order the optimistic roll, the fantasy roll and the whatever appeals to me. But my friend is doing a taco bar so... I’m unsure about the combo. I’ll check in with her tomorrow. I could always do a bunch of charcuterie instead.

    Super Bowl 2019 what's on your menu?

    I think it’s really versatile. I’m considering baking the puff pastry (I use Pepperidge Farms) then topping it with scrambled eggs, breakfast sausage, cheese and a drizzle (or spoon fulls) of hollandaise.

    California Dining 2019

    I think Danko will win out over Zuni, since Zuni is open for lunch. I’ll be solo most days (3) so if any local members are down to have a nice long boozy lunch let me know! 😗 I’m still eying Lilholo Yatch Club since it’s basically next to my hotel. Weee spending two nights in Napa, one we should probably eat then sleep before a day long tour and the one to have dinner after a tour. We will be right in downtown Napa. Is Morimoto worth it? Does anyone recommend an Italian place to soak up the wines on Friday night? I’m down to Uber.
