"Ladies Who Lunch" Lure - Ventura, CA

As I sit here at the computer writing this post I am procrastinating on packing my clothes for our next horse show. We will be in Fort Worth, Texas for the next few weeks and it made me realize how much I am going to miss this little lady, meet Dana Doyle - owner of Queen of Tarts Catering. She and I meet once a week, usually on Monday's, to catch up on food, fashion and all things fabulous!

She and I both flip for Lure Fish House so as we both had errands to run in Ventura we met up there. The location on California Street is easy access, the only bummer being you pay for parking on the street.

She and I split a half dozen Oysters and had a ball dressing them up with too much horseradish and lemon. Good oysters make me feel like absolute royalty.

Their New England Clam Chowder is pretty solid. It is not the best that I have ever had but it does cure a craving. It is not filled with potatoes or thickened with gobs of flour so it is something I can proudly recommend when feeling the urge to get your chowder on.

I went big at this lunch and ordered Crab Cakes to wolf down with my meal. The cakes are great and spicy aioli served on top is solid. Truly though, the main reason I love this is because of the tasty corn slaw served underneath. The ingredients remind me of summer and I cannot wait for fun parties held on our wrap around porch in months to come.

I look forward to more "Ladies Who Lunch" posts with my gals from the 805 but in the meantime I get to meet up with my old, fabulous roommates from my college days in Fort Worth. I am beyond lucky to have so many fine gals in my life to lunch with!
