Mustard's Grill Napa Pickle recipe?

We just had lunch at Mustard's Grill in Napa. We were served the most delicious and simple pickles as a side. I notusually a fan of this type of pickle - but, these were wonderful. As simple as this request may seem, I have searched everywhere and cannot find their recipe.
I'm sure there is a CH out there that can oblige. Thanks.

Laid back afternoon birthday party

We had a Friday night/rehearsal dinner at North Bowl recently. They were great to work with. They have set packages but were extremely accomodating about mixing it up to make the combination that we wanted. The food was very good. The wait staff was extremely attentive. We had peolpe/ 30s to 60s age group. Everyone enjoyed the drinks, food, fun (we actually bowled). And, we had ice cream sundaes for dessert. We would rec. to you. Go there and check it out.

Rancid Oil

If you feel the oil has already "gone south" - Is there anything that can be done to rectify it? Must you add the vitamin E when the oil is first opened? Please advise. Thanks
