I had dinner with a friend tonight at Delfina and found it to be, if anything, better than ever!
We had the Calamari Salad with White Beans, which seems to be everyone's favorite. In the past I've felt it has been too oily, but it was just right this time.
I followed with a Local Sea Bass with Corn, Chanterelles and Tomatoes, which was a perfect piece of fish cooked perfectly. The vegetable accompaniment was also wonderful. My only criticism was that a rather overlarge dollop of basil aioli was placed on the fish, dripping down into the corn and altering its lovely flavor. I scooped some of it off and put it in my bread plate, and all was well.
My friend had Gnocchi with Squash Blossoms, which had a nice lemony flavor and was just fine.
For dessert, we had the panna cotta, which was as smooth and creamy as it should be, and was served with a nice light caramel sauce and three blackberries.
