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

Friday, November 11, 2016


Another successful visit today to Heirloom for a lunch after visiting the British Museum at Yale. One had the Smoked Maine Trout Sandwich Melt [$18] with a Kale Salad and the other of us had the CT Grass Fed Beef Burger [$18] Grafton Cheddar, Horseradish Jam, House Pickles, Heirloom Fries. We also split a half bottle of Pinot Blanc [$24] Coffee and the Cookie Plate Sampler [$10] with a cup of frosting!

Between gallery and museum visits we stopped at Heirloom for a very nice lunch. The restaurant is located in the The Study at Yale Hotel. We started with the WHIPPED CHICKEN LIVER PATE [$10] Bacon Jam, Sea Salt & Toast  and it was delicious!

Then I proceeded [as did my guest] to the CRACKLING CALAMARI SALAD Napa Cabbage, Greens, Cilantro, Cucumber & Carrots, Yuzu-Ginger Dressing [$16] which came with ginger dressing for the greens and a spicy dressing for the calamari. This was a filling bowl of fantastic flavors with the calamari perfectly fried and very tender. This was enhanced by a glass of Pinot Blanc [$14].

Finished with a scoop Salted Caramel Gelato [order split for the two of us $8] and the Heirloom Cookie Plate of four different flavor freshly cooked cookies with a little crock filled with buttercream icing!
