My eyes are certainly bigger then my stomach. Happy Friday, everyone! Hope everyone is prepared for the long extended weekend! I know my belly is. Woke up this morning craving Cantonese style abalone jook aka congee. Decided to venture somewhere close by that we have …
Well, a full belly conquers all. –From the film Saving Face A family restaurant tucked away in a plaza offering delicious Taiwanese home style dishes. No frills just good eats. I enjoyed everything that was ordered and look forward to coming back for more soon. Note: Gua Bao Taiwanese …

Date night always gets me excited. Quality time spent with Mr. Hubs is always a special time since we rarely get to enjoy each others company for dinner during the week.
This would be my third third visit to The Village Pub, twice for brunch and tonight the first time for dinner. Sister to my favorite neighborhood bff restaurant Spruce located in San Francisco.
We started out with cocktails and they were fabulous. I believe the Greyhound’s Tooth won an award in NY. A good sign that the rest of the evening will pair out perfectly. The staff was attentive and the food was good. The highlights for the evening included the impeccable service, creative cocktails, fabulous bread and an amazing tomato -burrata salad.
We would have stayed for dessert but was running late for our evening spa appointments. Overall, it was a successful date night.
Notable(s): For the fifth consecutive year, The Village Pub has received one Michelin Star.
The Village Pub is honored that the guide has once again recognized the restaurant for its timeless ambiance, encyclopedic wine list, impeccable service, and exceptional American cuisine crafted by Chef Dmitry Elperin.
This dinner roll was amazingly fluffy and buttery with a touch of sea salt.

This dish was the least satisfying dish of the evening. All the condiments were delicious except for the main start which was the fish.
