Last night, my friend Megan and I checked out Gabardine in Point Loma. In typical Brian Malarkey-fashion, the details were incredible, the service was unbeatable and the food was pretty awesome, too. If the name sounds familiar it's because he was a Top Chef Miami finalist... pretty nifty, eh? Since then, Malarkey has opened a bevy of fantastic restaurants in San Diego; perhaps you read about Searsucker here

peter rabbit pimms cocktail... such a win

All in all it was a memorable meal. The brussels sprouts and cocktail were my favorite and my only real complaint was that my sea bass was slightly overcooked... but the nuts, dried cherries and sauce definitely made up for it.

In other news, my weekend was pretty great. Amanda and I cleaned our apartment inside and out and I planted some new succulents. I also spent some quality time with my bed... why is sleeping so great?

Oh I drove by a giant one of those swimmers the other day and was wondering what that was! This place looks great! I've only been to Gingham so far, but I think Gabardine needs to be next.

Yay I am so proud of our cleaning spree - I will maintain the sparkle while you're away! Also, I MUST have some of that broccolini with cheese... it looks delicious! On second thought maybe I will make it for us to celebrate your return :)
