Dinner with Friends!

Tuesday after work, Jennifer and I met up with Katherine for a night of seafood and gossip! Sounds like a good thing to do on a rainy afternoon - Phil's Fish Market is about half way for Katherine and I so we called it even.

Jennifer ordered Champagne Oysters sauteed in butter and shallots. They sounded so delicious in description but they really did not deliver as promised.

When I read the special #27 - Grilled fresh Alaskan Halibut & grilled crab meat topped with hollandaise sauce on a bed of spinach - you know I was sold! I really concentrated on eating the protein. There were steamed vegetables, besides the tasty spinach, that I played around with but I ignored the bread and potatoes. Protein power - I am telling you, that is the way to go when you are watching what you eat.

And this my friends, is an Artichoke Cupcake! Yes, you heard right! I had to try it! It was quite good, tasted kind of like zucchini bread with cream cheese frosting.

Here's the thing about Phil's - I like how you order and sit down. You don't have to wait on a waitress coming to take you order - that is nice. But, Phil's is so expensive! I don't envy anyone in the restaurant business because I know it is a rough industry but - WOW! I eat out a lot and could not afford to eat here regularly. But, this place is always packed! Keep on what your doing Phil - but maybe charge me less! ;)
