The House in North Beach

SF Board Chowhounds: Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
Tonight's dinner for three at The House was transcendental. Mere words will not do justice and no digital camera shots to post - alas! How ever did I maintain a semblance of polite dinner conversation while my eyes were rolling back in my head from sheer pleasure?
I watched as both hubby and his cousin tucked into their generous plates of Butter Lettuce salad with chopped Fuji apple (or, was it a pear?) golden raisins, creamy with a Pt. Reyes bleu cheese vinaigrette, and my tongue caroused with three Seared Day Boat Scallops with a spicy Ponzu sauce and garnished with daikon sprouts.
Pork Chops glazed with a pomegranate sauce and served with Mashed Potato made someone very happy...and he didn't even offer me a bite! My own fork was too preoccupied to hover within reach of his plate...
Hamachi with sushi rolls of avocado and crab with tobiko and nori - we were mirror images sitting side by side each with our own seared rare hamachis...too engulfed to deconstruct this. It was so very good, I can't even describe it.
Apple Crumble a la Mode & Coconut Crème Brulée with a berry coulis & Dragonwell green tea. sah. all's well that ends well. (even the soft night rain was perfect...as we scooted into a parking space in front of The House) - Thank you, Chowhounds!
