On Sunday Jeff took me to Whalesbone for my birthday dinner. We had never been (embarrassing since it is the only cool fish/seafood restaurant in this city) and it was awesome! My only disappointments were that they do not have A/C so we were HOT. So very hot. We sat at the back right in front of the kitchen (cool spot though) so my silk Rick Owens shorts started sticking to my legs.
Thankfully my sister warned us about the temperature situation and since it was 35 degrees out I wore the lightest outfit I had. Another bummer was there were no cocktails. I am a sucker for a funky cocktail. I had beer instead. Anyhoo, minor details. I highly recommend this place. Here is what we had...
I started with the special - a tomato salad that isn't on the menu I brought home so I don't remember ingredients. Fab!
Jeff started with 1 lb mussels / coconut / lime leaf / chili / garlic / peanuts / thai basil (the sauce was divine!)
My main was the mackerel / eggplant / smoked tomato puree / putanesca / basil
Jeff's main was the steelhead trout / carrot / cauliflower / burnt honey / apple / fennel / dukkah
I always make room for dessert - banana cream pie. OH YESSSSSSS.
Jeff got the churros with chocolate sauce. YUMMY.
