scoma's

While I was visiting the Bay Area, my dad got his mind set on a crab salad sandwich and just couldn't let it go (sound familiar? Like father, like daughter). Back in his prime (just kidding, Dad, it's still your prime), my dad used to eat at Scoma's in San Francisco, so we went to the location in Sausalito, a precious, quintessential Bay Area eatery, to cure his craving.

calamari to die for

lobster roll, yep!

the beautiful bay area

There's something about the Bay Area that feels like home, though it's never been a long term home for me. I seem to breathe easier when I'm there, feeling confident in myself and my path. Funny, isn't it, how certain places can lift you up like that, huh?

Needless to say, Scoma's cuisine was perfect; simple and fresh seafood. And the atmosphere and view? You just can't beat it.

PS: Have you guys seen Laura's wedding video? If you're in need of a hump day pick-me-up, I highly suggest watching. I promise it'll make your day life.

Oh, I loved the Bay Area when I visited a month ago! So beautiful and clear - I wish I could go back.
And ah yum, that Lobster Roll looks absolutely delicious! The only one I've ever had was from Luke's Lobsters in New York...and I am haunted by the deliciousness of it. ^^

What beautiful views! I'm such a fan of outdoor seating. And honestly, sometimes I judge a restaurant's success on how good their calamari is, no lie. Haha

Love good Bay Area eateries! My dad's whole side of the family lives in the Bay and I used to live in East Bay so I'm with you on it feeling like home. :)

Looks delicious and beautiful! I remember visiting the San Francisco Bay area and LOVING it and there really was this sort of calming feeling that I got.

Seriously?! I'm SO freaking hungry now! I've been craving a lobster roll like a madwoman lately and now seeing that photo plus the photo of the calamari, I'm practically drooling! There is just something about summer that makes me want seafood :)
