We went out with a bang on our last foodie adventure in California! We sat at a cozy, little table at Foreign Cinema and began to analyze the menu. What was special? What couldn’t we get in our respective hometowns? What hadn’t we already experienced on this trip?
Although my mom can get seafood a plenty in Florida, I’ve been struggling to find oyster-seeking friends in Texas. My eyes lit up when I saw Plateau de Fruits de Mer. I saw her see me and then say something like, “well, I’m sure this is Pacific seafood that wouldn’t be as fresh near me.”. Moms are the best. We ordered it.
We ordered the plateau, zucchini soup with porcini, dungeness crab gratin, and chocolate pot de crème. And everything, to the very last drop, exceeded any positive word I could manage to dig up from a thesaurus right now. So I’ll leave it at that, indescribable in the best way ever. Just like the time spent with my mom, how fitting.
