Date Night

Insalata Caprese with tomato and mozzarella cheese with basil

Sunday is usually a date night., and we are never short of ideas. We both like to unwind at a charming restaurant in Downtown San Diego, have a spicy bottle of red wine & select a bunch of appetizers to split. Our friend, Westin [ who also happens to craft some of the most avant-garde furniture I have ever seen] recommended Island Prime restaurant, claiming it delivered one of the best ambiences in town, especially at sunset. His recommendation turned out to be amazing & delicious. I chose the Caprese [ contains free radicals ], the green beans [ a natural diuretic ] with pecans [ extremely filling, naturally ] & oysters [ iron & omegas ]. Our dessert was strawberries & cream [ oh… & the Bordeaux too ].

Quick skinny tip: Menu items contain way more calories, sugar & carbs than you think. Modify your order. Ask for extra virgin olive oil instead of butter, lemon & red wine vinegar instead of dressing, and/or grilled menu items instead of fried.
