Sun of a Gun
Still one of my favorite places. The pimento cheese and shrimp will never get old.
pimento cheese dip
peel & eat shrimp
salad of somewhat unknown ingredients
I’m very picky about pizza and Mozza is still one of the best. But the carrots were so fantastic that I had to go back for them.
shaved carrots, fennel, mizuna rabe, caraway yogurt & rye
meatballs, mozzarella di bufala, tomato, chili flakes & fresh oregano
Loved this installment of the pop-up dinners at Vino Carta. It is fantastic to see how these continue to grow.
roasted & fermented vegetables, trout roe, brown rice, charred bread
live scallop crudo, lardo, XO sauce, seaweed oil, preserved citrus
eucalyptus smoked lamb & beef tartare, blackberry, jicama, pine nuts
grilled chicories, pork, calabrian chili, kohlrabi
yakitori quail, wheat berries, green garlic, meyer lemon, wild mustard
Somehow they were out of the first two wines we tried to order but it was only up-hill from there. I could eat these dishes everyday.
La Paz – big eye tuna, cucumber, orange zest, ginger habanero salsa
shrimp aquachile, cucumber, red onion, radish, serrano, cilantro, lime
grilled octopus, green pipian, toasted sesame, radish
Yellowtail – morita & hibiscus coulis, cucumber slaw, seasonal fruit, crispy hibiscus flower
It was finally time to branch out from Cucina Urbana which has been a go-to for more years than I can remember. As good as expected and the Big Table Farm pinot did not hurt.
pesto & piquillo pepper flatbread – zucchini, pecorino, arugula, ricotta
market chopped salad – kale, fennel, celery root, grape, ricotta salt, cashew, white balsamic
pumpkin & goat cheese & zatar & crudite
grilled sicilian meatballs – amatriciana, guanciale, grana padano
