Happy New Year!
This year’s new years plans included three parts. First was drinks at our home. Our friends came over to enjoy some Lemon Drop made with Meyer Lemons. Sweet and refreshing with the kick of vodka. Then we were off to dinner at a new place that opened in our neighborhood. It was great to catch up with our friends but the dining experience was not all that we had hoped for. The food was good but not very creative or well balanced. My steak was served on a pile of ox’s tail (meat on meat). It would have been good to have a bit more vegetable or starch. Also 3 out of 4 our our entrees came out at the same time and we had to wait a few more minutes for the pasta dish. Like I said the place is still very new. I think that this was their busiest night since they opened. As we were leaving I noticed that they guy making drinks at the bar was our waiter. No wonder it took us three hour to eat dinner. After dinner we headed over to a new years eve party to ring in the new year with some additional friends. Good time had by all!
