flickr photo by ulterior epicureWith finals last week, I neglected my blog. And now that I've returned home to California for the holidays, it looks like I will be equally busy with family and friends. I have several posts waiting in my head, however I feel compelled this morning to write about sweetbreads and a wonderful little restaurant called Waterboy.
Waterboy Restaurant, from websiteLast night my family and I went to Waterboy in Sacramento. I want to give it a shout out, because it is amazing! The friendly and knowledgeable wait staff (sign of great management!), lovely atmosphere (elegant but not stuffy), and astonishing food (they use seasonal ingredients) have won me over. It requires a tidy sum, so I know I'll be back for a very special occasion.
A tasty evening began with a gnocchi dish that I split with my sister. Actually, this is the first time I ate gnocchi. I hardly cook pasta and I don't go out for Italian very often. Gnocchi- so soft and cute.
- Housemade Gnocci Gratin, with Butternut Squash, Chanterelles (I learned that this is a type of mushroom), Fontina, Breadcrumbs, Sage.
You're thinking, "Doesn't this crazy girl know that a restaurant review is tasteless without the accompanying food photos?" I know, I know. Let's just say that bringing out a camera with its bright flash would have felt very un-classy. So use your imagination. : )
