The Cat wanted to start the new year with good eats. This restaurant was supposed to be a “long-term” pop-up that turned into an extended open-end venture. Confused? Hee hee.


The Cat’s

Baked Shrimp “A La Escargot”

Cafe de Paris butter. The Cat liked. The Mouse wished it was served with a bowl of rice, a little shoyu, and a fried egg to use all of the butter. Hee hee.

The Mouse’s

Beef Tartare

With crispy baguette. The Mouse liked.


Red & Green Salad

Roasted pear, Gorgonzola, aged Balsamic vinaigrette. The Mouse’s was Gorgonzola


The Cat’s

Scallops Risotto

Hamakua mushroom, “Vialone Nano Rice”, Parmesan Cream. the Cat thought slightly salty, took half home to mix with regular rice.

The Mouse’s


Falafel, hummus, smoked eggplant, lettuce leaves, pickled vegetables. The Mouse liked.


The Cat’s

Mango Kulfi

Gastronault yogurt, pistachio, 24K gold. The Cat liked.

There was no dessert for The Mouse that was dairy sensitive friendly, he ended up with two chocolate chip cookies.

Stay safe and well.

The Cat’s dinner last weekend.

Cream of Mushroom Soup

From the Italian cafe up the street.

Chef’s Vegetables, Mushroom Risotto


Vanilla Bean Ice Cream, Cinnamon Apple Crisp

The ice cream is supposed to go on top of the crisp, but the servers know us and serve it on the side so The Mouse can partake of the crisp. Dairy issues. Ick!

Enjoy. Eat well.

Both The Cat and The Mouse worked late the other day. Stopped at the neighborhood Italian cafe (missed the early bird discounts), saves cooking and washing time. Tried to keep the eating “light”, until … Sigh.

Tomato Basil Soup, Minestrone Soup


Mushroom Risotto


Sauteed Vegetables


Pasta Primavera

We were doing pretty good, a good portion of the food were taken home for later consumption (spreading the calories over a longer period of time, Hee hee).

Then dessert kinda happened.

Apple and Cinnamon Crisp

The Mouse thinks it’s still ok, since there were apples in the dessert. That’s The Mouse’s story and he is sticking to it. Hee hee.

Enjoy. Eat well.
