Dinner out @ Pearl Oyster Bar and Restaurant
This past Wednesday was date night…or really double date night as we crashed Pat and Lea’s evening out. It had been awhile since we’ve seen Pat and Lea so we dropped Ben off with their au pair and the kids and went out for a really nice evening at Pearl Oyster Bar and Restaurant in Oakland.
What a night!! It was just so nice to go out and have an adult dinner and conversation. An evening of firsts…Steph had a glass of wine (still prefers the fruity cocktails) and I even tried a little raw fish (which I’m not crazy about, but the tuna was really good). The food was amazing and comes highly recommended. The halibut fillet is complemented by corn, cherry tomatoes, gypsy pepper ragout and a bit of lobster butter. The salmon was moist and is served over spinach in sake-Uzi vinaigrette and accompanied by tempura-battered portobellos. Both are can’t miss dishes and don’t leave without trying the desert. It’s nice to finally have another option for Seafood in the neighborhood.
