Dramatically Served

Greetings from Pebble Beach!! Joe, Alicia and I arrived Wednesday night and we met up with my husband and other friends for dinner at Sardine Factory.  We shared The Factory’s Famous Cheese Bread (Tillamook cheddar, Romano & Parmesan cheese on toasted sourdough bread):

Eh. It was ok. Nothing special. 

I ordered the Rack of Lamb (2 bone) for my entree.

It’s hard to tell, but the portion size of the lamb was extremely small but the price wasn’t. I was a bit disappointed. I did order a side of Chive Risotto which was delicious.

There was an item on the dessert menu that was hard to pass up based upon the description: Chocolate Dipped Ice Cream “Bonbons” ….served Dramatically with Dry Ice. Dramatically huh? I had to see this.

Yes….it was quite dramatic indeed!!! 

We woke up late on Thursday morning and headed off to The Gallery at Pebble Beach for brunch. I enjoyed the Gallery Grilled Cheese (bacon, tomato, Monterey jack & California cheddar) with garlic rosemary fries.

Excellence. 

Alicia and I joined the boys on the golf course for the day. Not golfing but hanging out in the cart….

Last night we went to Peppers for dinner. Guacamole for everyone:

I ordered the Prawns Gonzalez (tomatoes, chiles, cilantro, lime juice). The menu said it was “Spicy!” and it was the only thing on the menu that claimed that.

It wasn’t spicy at all. :( It was bland actually. But after adding the shrimp to tortillas along with guacamole and tons of hot sauce, it wasn’t half bad. 

Since we were celebrating my husband’s birthday we had to have birthday cake!

Mexican cake with vanilla ice cream. Nom. 

Breakfast this morning was at The Gallery again.

Eggs Benedict and prosecco. The only way to start your day. 

We enjoyed our view this morning:

The guys are out golfing again but Alicia and I are staying back to relax for the day. Too bad we have to go home tomorrow….
