an egg is an egg...meditating at the Museo Miró in Barcelona

Another good meal tonight...this place can really deliver. Their specials are also such a good bet. After and exhausting weekend of Art Shows of Private Collections [one in my cottage and the other in a friend's home], we set off to enjoy a quiet meal to end the evening. Luce was our choice.

I started with a Negroni [$8](my new/old cocktail of choice)] and then, after a half dozen oysters, had the Veal Strip special of the evening [$32.95] which had been 'impregnated' with ricotta and broccoli rabe while served with baby potatoes in a gorgonzola gravy. Accompanied by a glass of wine [Oyster Bay Sauvignon Blanc $8.75] It was delicious!

This is now my favorite restaurant of the moment.

A text, an invitation to dinner, a wonderful meal, conversation with great friends, dessert, coffee...utter joy on day that needed some uplifting. Enough drama but now the meal.

Good bread and olive oil, Campari and soda, a dozen oysters, split a Caesar salad. Then the very best rack of Lamb I have had in a long time. A bed of kale and accompanying polenta cake encasing chicken sausage with a peppercorn saucing just enhanced this delectable hunk of medium rare lamb. A sweet pour of Pinot Noir was the perfect pairing for this meal.

Panna Cotta with a fruit compote was the dessert to end this meal with a good cup of coffee. I hadn't been back to LUCE for quite a while but will soon remedy that.
