Traveling a bit. In and out of town, so apologies for not posting more often. Spent a few days in New York and a long weekend in San Francisco. A quick rundown of the best of the best:
A revelatory meal at The John Dory in New York's Meatpacking District. It's Spotted Pig chef April Bloomfield's stab at seafood and what a lovely stab it is. Standouts include kampachi crudo with candied ginger and a delectable little dish that consisted of uni butter on crostini that you dip in an oyster broth- salty, rich, briny luxury.
Wine tasting at Darioush Winery in Napa followed by fresh baguettes at Bouchon Bakery down the road. Oh Napa, you are indeed paradise.
Updated: Fellow blogger Frodesnor pointed out that The John Dory closed over the weekend. Damn. It was really busy the night I was there. Hopefully Bloomfield will bounce back from it.
