Weekend Meals @ Luna Park and Chavas

Big Larry | Nov 21, 2005 11:21 AM

Had dinner with a group of friends Sat. night at Luna Park. Had an 8:30 reservation but didn't get seated until closer to nine. Started off with goat cheese fondue and a couple of artichokes as the apps. I split a cobb salald and the sea bass with my partner. The seabass was very good. Served with spicy greens and roasted potatoes. The cobb salad was pretty good, though i prefer the chicken shredded or pulled instead of big square chunks. Other entrees that were had were a couple of Tuna Nicoise salads (which did taste good) and a couple of macaroni and cheeses. The drinks were good. I had something called the 'Blue Ribbon Treatment'. It's a can of PBR and a shot of Jack Daniels (a huge pour....easily a double) and a glass of beer nuts served on a silver platter. It's fun.. Overall it was a good meal and a nice time and with tax and tip was $194 dollars.

The 'Blue Ribbon Treatment' started the night off right and a good amount of drinking was done after that, so rolling out of bed hungover at 11:30 sunday morning it was decided that Mexican would be had. We drove over to Chavas, easily found parking on Mission street, luckily snagged a table, and sat down to have a wonderful lunch. My horchata was downed in about 3 long sips. But we ate plenty of chips with the complimentary guacamole and pico as well as the very good salsa. I had the pozole and my partner the chicken flautas. THe pozole was wonderful. Not overly greasy and very delicate and tasting of meat. The flautas were quite greasy, but aren't they supposed to be? Rice pudding was for dessert (it was good too) and then it was back home to sleep the beautiful afternoon away. The bill was $29 with tax and tip.

So it was a good weekend of eating.
