Duly noted. Let's say I want to impress them with a hearty meat dinner, like the ones not available in Europe!! :)

Broadway Prime in Burlingame?

I forgot, it is for tonight! :)

Dinner @ Manresa, with wine TNs

I was there with my husband on May 5th. We also had the tasting menu. The amuse-bouche we started out with were some of the most impressive I have ever had. Nevertheless, we started the main dishes with Fois Gras. The first of over 7 course was fois gras. Now, if you're i the kitchen, know anything about nutrition, or ever paid attention to your stomach, you know very well that fat dampens you appetite, and makes you eat less. On top of the fact that it just sets a tone for the remaining courses. we had three fish courses served after that, all of which felt mediocre, and we were literally falling asleep at the table before we even got to desserts. About an hour after the fois gras, we finally started to recover, but speaking of faux pas!! Not a smart idea to serve that dish first among main courses. I was expecting a bit more from a two-star restaurant, to be honest. In the end, we did not enjoy our main courses, and I am sure they could have been quite terrific if served in a different order.
This was our second time at Manresa, the first one being way before Micheline even started to think about San Francisco. That first meal was definetly better.

Broadway Prime in Burlingame?

I know we've talked about this before, but as usual I have folks in town from Italy and I am really trying to impress with steak. Nevertheless the city is out, since they have a 11pm flight out of SFO. We're looking at the Peninsula, and I have a tentative reservation for Broadway Prime. Am I going to be good??? Should I head to Sundance in Palo Alto instead? Please help! :)

My folks are in town from Italy, and we'd like to go explore the coast and eat some terrific Dungeness crabs on Sunday for lunch. Any recommendations??
