The Cat hibernated most of the day. Easter dinner, take-out from the neighborhood Italian-inspired cafe.

Gnocchi Primavera

Grilled Rib-Eye

The Mouse’s. Molokai sea salt, roasted potatoes & chef’s vegetables. Four paws nom.

Lotsa leftovers for both The Cat and The Mouse. 🙂

Small support for a local eatery.

How was your Easter (if you are inclined to observe)?

Stay well and safe.

Michel’s at the Colony Surf. Chef’s choice.

Amuse Bouche

Salmon tartar on toast. If Chef allowed, The Mouse could’ve had a plate of them. Really nom!


Normally, Chef presents the famous lobster bisque, a change up. Good thing The Mouse packed lactose pills, he went through several. Hee hee.

Salad Course

Caesar salad. The bestest. The Mouse is spoiled. Other Caesar salads are no comparison (in The Mouse’s opinion).

Fish Course

Salmon, done excellently. The Cat usually shies away from salmon, she feels often times overcooked. This was perfect. Paws up.


Pineapple yuzu sorbet. The Mouse needs a gallon of this. Hee hee.

Meat Course

Wagyu rib steak with truffle shavings. Melt in da mouth!

Dessert #1

Souffle! The Mouse’s request. Nom!

Dessert #2

Cherries Jubilee. Chef usually presents Bananas Foster, in The Mouse’s opinion, he likes the jubilee ever so slightly better. Paws up!

Enjoy. Eat well.
