amuse bouche of Clam Casino which was the greatest start to a fantastic meal [did I say that already?]

and to top it all off some bags of Guava filled Chocolate Macaroons [and Doggie Treats which would be the ultimate doggy bag!

Are we talking about the same J. Gilberts?! Wow! Have always had a good meal there, but nothing like this. How many times can I write that I'm jealous of your dining experiences? Thanks for sharing! (Really, I mean it.)
