My sister flew through town, just long enough to celebrate her birthday and then some. We had the always amazing Little Star on Friday, but then turned it up a culinary notch (or three) when we dropped in at James Beard favorite Zuni Cafe on Saturday night.
Here's what we had:
Grilled blue nose bass, moist and flakey, sitting in a spicy romesco sauce with a mess of al dente white beans and tender asparagus.
Sweet and savory in perfect balance with a fleshy-pink helping of roasted leg o' lamb, artichoke heart plus some deliciously seasoned and fried sweet potatoes.
A honkin' piece of the silkiest sweet Meyer lemon tart dressed up with a few kumquat slivers and a dollop of creme fraiche.
The food and drink had gone to our heads. So much so that we were ready for beddy-bye even before the bill came 'round. ... It was with much (and somewhat painful) effort that we got our groggy—and bloated—selves home.
