Dinner at Sonoma in Princeton. Nice room with soft music by a violinist. For appetizers we had seared sea scallops, three large scallops cooked perfectly in a light balsamic glaze, and a roasted beet and goat cheese salad, also very good. For entrees, elk medallions with mushrooms in a demiglace, and a nice sized rack of lamb, were both very good. Good wine list (though a little on the pricy side), we had a nice cabernet for $45. Dessert was a pear tart that was served too hot and lost its consistency (from being put in a microwave?). All in all, a good meal, and at $150 with tip, not a cheap meal.
Dinner at Bamboo Hut in Worcester. Hungry group of four. For starters, one green papaya salad with shrimp comfortably fed four, had a good spicy kick. Two orders of crab cakes (4 total) were tasty. They also serve great shrimp chips and give a salad or soup with each entree ordered. For main dishes, the pork in clay pot was spicy and excellent. Shrimp with scallions was a tasty and large portion. The steak with onions was a large portion but the steak was fatty and tough. A chicken dish with noodles was good. We overordered but almost everything was good. Bring your own wine/beer. $75 with tip for a lot of good food.
Sunday Brunch at Nancy's Airfield Cafe in Stow. Beautiful day sitting next to the airstrip. Had the special eggs benedict of the day, served over an apple/chicken sausage patty, which was excellent, and a smoked turkey "reuben", served on pumpernickel with swiss and great homemade apple slaw. Good brunch/ggod service/good value.
