I swung by my local florist last week, the Camelback Flowershop, and saw something that made my heart flutter:
My initial thought was that I would take advantage of this the next time I host a dinner party on a weekend. But, then again, why wait for a special occasion? At 50% off, I want to treat myself every chance I can get. La vida es corta.
This lovely flower boutique delivers with over-the-top friendly service in a relaxed and hip environment. It’s fun to duck in here on a hot day to check out their succulents and fresh flower arrangements.
For the main course, I chose the fish of the day: Halibut with Cous Cous, Carrots, Fava Beans and Sauce Vierge.
Hubby tried the Grilled Half Chicken with Sherry Vinegar, Coriander, Basmati Rice and Cucumbers, a favorite I had read about on Yelp. We were not disappointed. The cucumbers were marinated escabeche-style and gave a nice vinegary zing to the dish.
Many reviews on Yelp mentioned that the veggie sides were worth the trip in and of themselves. Most definitely. In the foreground of the photo below is the Spicy Broccoli with Tangerine Aioli and Pistachios, a dish out of which I could have made an entire meal. In the background is the Housemade Pasta of the Day with Asparagus, Snap Peas, Crispy Prosciutto, Morels and Pecorino Cheese. Thank you, FnB…I am eager to return!
