I’ve decided to start a series called Tiny Urban Tidbits where I share with you some insights, “tidbits”, or just random encounters from the week. I carry my camera with me everywhere I go, and I love capturing photos of interesting things that I discover. These may include new dishes from a restaurant that I’ve already reviewed, updates on what’s going on locally, or encounters I’ve had in the kitchen. It could even include a beautiful sunset, a funny sign, or just stuff I find amusing. Think of it as snapshots (literally!) of my weekly experiences with food – intertwined with stories, of course.
A beautiful dessert that resulted from a dramatic presentation (see above) at The Oceanaire.
Will Gilson changes his menu at The Garden At the Cellar frequently. We go here all the time because it takes us less than 3 minutes to walk to his restaurant. Here is his recent creative interpretation of the very traditional French salad, Salade Nicoise.
Muqueca in Cambridge (another one of my favorite restaurants) recently moved to a bigger space right down the street. They now serve alcohol and have a slightly expanded menu. The ambiance is still charming (although not quite as intimate as the old space) and there is a lot more seating. The service is still a bit slow, but the food is just as fantastic. Prices have gone up a bit, probably to account for the new space and the liquor license.
I learned that tea eggs and Japanese egg molds don’t work that well together . . .
Had a refreshing fruit that reminds me of my childhood. Anyone know what fruit this is?
Have a wonderful weekend! Look forward to another Giveaway next week!
