Well, dinner was - as it's always been at this place - wonderful.

Had reservations & were seated immediately, along with a basket of to-die-for soft, warm, in-house-made herb bread, softened butter, & a small dish of spicy marinated olives - all, I might add, refilled as needed without request. As we usually do, ended up ordering from the day's "specials".

We both started with the "Baked Oysters with Arugula Pesto". A dozen gorgeous LARGE oysters on the half shell, generously topped with a delightful garlicy arugula pesto & an equally generous amount of parmesan cheese - all baked/broiled into hot ooey gooey goodness. So rich - almost a meal in themselves.

For entrees, I was in a "meat" mood, so ordered the herb-crusted prime rib topped with a dollop of horseradish & served over broccolini & a garlic-potato gratin. The meat was literally 2" thick, almost a foot long & half that wide. Needless to say I have half of it in the fridge waiting to be lunch - lol!! Hubby had the grilled grouper & shrimp, served over broccolini, seasoned crisped tortillas, all atop a thick layer of incredibly good & very spicy chili-mole sauce. He also had to bring some home, the portion was so large.

For dessert, hubby had the Cannoli; I the Raspberry Mousse. Both were incredible - the Cannoli was icy cold (that's the way we both love them) & the filling was obviously freshly made; the raspberry mouse was intensely flavored & beautifully presented.

Thanks GB!! But you know, except for the great gifts (DVD's, cookbooks, a new mini-food processor, & a professional-type mandoline) & the terrific food, once you pass the half-century mark, I'm not sure there's all that much to celebrate - lol!!!!!!!!

The only difference between a "cook" and a "Chef" is who cleans up the kitchen.
