Best Restaurant Experience of 2010

Share the best restaurant experience you had this year. Who was there? What made it amazing? What taste stands out in your mind?

This post is slightly time delayed and meant to be Day 2. I woulda/coulda/shoulda written it yesterday on 12/2, but did not. So, instead, I will write Day 2 and 3 back to back.

I didn’t do very much dining out in 2010. Actually, I did, as in not making a meal at home… But I didn’t do much dining out as in actually going out to a pricey restaurant and making an event of it.

Of those times I did embark on a restaurant rendezvous, I’m going to go with another family experience. In early April, my mom came to visit the Bay Area. On the first night of the visit, we decided to travel to the Cliff House in San Francisco, a great place to stop on the way home to Marin AND a place I had never been before. The restaurant was very busy, for a Friday night, and nearby Ocean Beach was in prime mystique form, with the waves slowly tapping at the sand far below us. I don’t remember exactly what I had – I think it was some combination of fish. The atmosphere and occasion stand out much more in my mind. It had the air of possibility and potential that comes at the start of a trip or adventure, whether with family or friends. It was also a comfortable blend of the ease of family with the excitement of something new in an area I now know very well.

About JP

Once upon a time, there was a boy from New England. He grew up with a sense of adventure, loving to travel around the Northeast region. He could always count on the presence of a Buddhist community in his family and friends. Later, those interests merged. His sense of adventure continued to grow, expanding across Europe and then back the other direction across the USA.
