The main food. The Cat ordered salmon.

Pan-Seared Ora King Salmon

Served on a bed of sweet corn, yellow and zucchini squash, cauliflower rice, edamame, fresh basil, blistered tomatoes, salsa verde, and grilled lemon. The Cat said salmon was cooked perfectly.

The Mouse went the menu less traveled, since everything was ala carte, ordered two appetizers.

Nueske;s Bacon Steak

Thick-cut, soy-caramel glazed. Mmm. Texture was chewy, taste reminded The Mouse of fried SPAM, in a good way. Hee hee.

SRF Wagyu Meatballs

Sans Parmesan cheese. Very good, definite order again.

Sides were large portions to share.

Sautéed Brussels Sprouts

With bacon and shallots.

Sautéed Spinach & Button Mushrooms

Server recommended the mushrooms with onions but with The Cat digestion issues with onions …

Actually, the spinach and mushrooms were very good too.

Stay safe and well.

Part II.

The Cat’s order:

Bubu arare crusted big glory bay salmon, whole grain mustard vinaigrette, organic greens, tomato, spanish onions, cucumber. The dish was a salad but kitchen provided a bowl of rice when requested. The Cat liked, salmon was perfectly cooked (just over raw in the center).

The Mouse order from the wine bar menu.

Certified angus beef sliders: black pepper mayo, swiss cheese, house made potato bun (dairy intolerance). Very coarse ground. The Mouse liked. The Mouse could definitely order this again. The Cat said the meat smell was too much for her.

For the “fries” portion, The Mouse ordered ‘patatas bravas’: crispy fried potatoes, togarashi mayo, furikake, tobiko, katsuobushi.

Think spicy tuna sauce but on potatoes. These were really good, served hot enough that the katsuobushi was still “dancing”. Paw up.

As good as the potatoes were, The Mouse still preferred the fried Brussels sprouts. Nest time.

Stay safe and well.

p.s. The Mouse got his second vaccination for the thing that cannot be named. He feels a little safer now.

The Cat and The Mouse dropped off an envelope to a graduate, daughter of our favorite beef chip makers.


Since we were in the area, tried an old school diner.

The Place

Since 1947, gotta be good. Location (distance) and parking were barriers to The Cat and The Mouse trying sooner.

The ordered one of the chalkboard specials, furikake salmon.

Furikake Salmon, Wasabi Cream

The Mouse ordered hamburger steak.

Hamburger Steak, Grilled Onions, Mushroom Gravy

Mmm. Old school. The Mouse thinks there might have been a little filler in the hamburger (breadcrumbs?). The meat was very soft (in a good way).

Of course, The Mouse can’t visit an old school eatery without indulging in green river, when available.

Pink Lemonade, Green River

The Cat has approved a return, hopefully, next time, the inside dining will be open. The Mouse heard their saimin is good. 🙂

Stay safe and well.

Or Sunday brunch. A bit of a breather for The Cat before final push of regular tax season. Kinda of a new try, we’ve done take out from Basalt during the lock down, first time eating in.

Smoked Salmon Hash?

The Cat’s dish, a daily special. Crispy hash brown, eggs, lox. The Mouse thinks it was chef’s take on latkes. Pretty good.

Pork Belly Fried Rice

The Mouse’s dish. Bacon fried rice, roast pork belly, two fried eggs, toasted English Muffin, Mmm. The pork belly roast, best The Mouse has eaten in a while. The Mouse’s only complaint, maybe half a scoop more fried rice. Almost perfect. 🙂

Shared dessert.

Grand Marnier Mousse Cake

Dark chocolate mousse, raspberry sauce, mixed berries.

The Cat has approved application to return soon. There is a braised beef short rib dish The Mouse is curious about. 🙂

Stay safe and well.
