In my last post I mentioned that San Diego is in the midst of Restaurant Week.
That's pretty much a holiday in my eyes.
A multi-day holiday,
filled with dining deals up the wazoo.
A few days ago,
we celebrated the husband's birthday at Flemings,
which was just so-so.
It was just...
I don't know,
Yeah, the steak was good,
but that's about it.
Just a little piece of tender filet minion in the middle of a boring plate.
whatever creative juices I was missing at Flemings,
were definitely made up for last night.
The husband and I visited Georges at the Cove, California Modern.
It. Was. Glorious.
Now I know the picture directly above this text doesn't look too impressive..
What IS that?
It was one of those instances when no matter how hard I tried I couldn't capture the exquisite taste that was in my mouth onto my camera.
But please take my word for it,
when I tell you that it was probably my favorite dish of the night.
Of course everything else was amazing as well....
This is what I earn for when I dine out.
Creativity and flavor.
The presentation is just a cherry on top.
|Grilled Sardines - winter tabbouleh, pomegranate, yogurt|
|Prime Hanger Steak|
|Braised Lamb Shank - butternut squash risotto, sweet onion raisin relish, feta salsa verde|
|Chino Farms Carrot Cake - tangerine bubbles, salted pepitas, vanilla creameux, ginger florentine, candied carrots, marinated pears|
just snuck onto the number one spot
on my list of favorite dining establishments.
