OK, today is not lovely Polly’s actual birthday. Nor was yesterday. August 7, in fact, was the big day, but we just got around to celebrating it last night (!), with a typically fabulous dinner at Lucia’s. Great wine (they make a terrific daily red and white suggestion, to suit the day’s menu), perfect food, gorgeous lighting, impeccable service…it is my favorite restaurant, there’s not an occasion I don’t look forward to celebrating there. As Polly and I were saying, they treat food so respectfully – that sounds odd, I know, but the presentation is simple and clean, without sacrificing flavor or interest. The food isn’t tortured into anything silly or over-the-top. I appreciate a straight-shooter; in fact, don’t we all? Hell yeah! I’m going for my own 40th, in some way, shape, or form, fo sho. (I have a few months before that momentous occasion, but just a few…ack!)
Anyone else have a birthday to celebrate? Anyone?
