First off, HAPPY NEW YEAR LADIES AND GENTLEMAN!
I might want to move to Seattle.
At this point, it's a toss between San Francisco and Seattle post graduation in Feb 2013. I just need to figure out that whole job thing. Shouldn't be too hard right?
One of the reasons I want to move is the food. It's real, it's fresh and it's thoughtful.
We dined for happy hour from 4-5. A line was out the door just to get in. With only 40ish seats, it filled up quickly.
this guy is a master shucker. I mean, with the a beard like that, he has to be.
A glass of Muscadet to start the adventure....
The menu is rather small, which is perfect. The attraction are the oysters after all.
Bread with butter AND olive oil. I for some reason thought this was a genius idea on their part.
and then the oysters happened.....all 39 of them.
My favorite was probably the Kusshi. Sweet, light and not very briny.
We all shared a plethora of delicious seafood dishes. All of them were superb.
smoked trout, pickled onion, lentils, walnuts, crème fraiche
Fried Oysters with Cilantro Aioli
Gooey Duck Gratin
Fried Brussels Sprouts
Grilled Sardines with Walnuts + Parsley
Oh, and dessert. Too good and too fast to snap a photo.
maple bread pudding, espresso butter sauce, whipped cream
Yesterday morning I went on an hour long extremely hill in run. The view was absolutely amazing. My calves hate me.
Seattle has a nice ring to it. I guess we'll see by the end of this year where I'll be moving. HOW EXCITING!
Tell me, do you like oysters?
I used to not care for them, but now I really appreciate them in their raw state of being.
Where do you want to live or do you live in the perfect city?
