New to us

Oakland, July 30, 2018—

THE PLACE OPENED ten years ago but for some reason we'd never been here. A convenient location for lunch with some old friends, we gave it a try.

We began with some very delicious green olives, dusted in crumbs and smoked paprika and warmed in a bit of olive oil; I went on to this plate of albacore, cooked just enough and served with a marvelous warm tapenade, I'd all it, of eggplant, tomato, fennel, red and yellow peppers, and onion, liberally sprinkled with good black pepper.

The menu and wine list is really quite interesting here; I think we'll be back for dinner one day…

     🍷Arneis: sorry; forgot to photograph the label. Gotta get back in the Eating Every Day groove, Shere!
