Weekend Eats (and Drinks)

We started the weekend off right, with a well-deserved, truly wonderful night out at La Laiterie

Dirty Debutante

…and kept the fun going with a little cheese and fizzy at home.

Had the time of our lives with new friends on Saturday…

…and joined old friends for the bawdiest brunch in Providence:

Bad Girl French Toast

Bloody Mary


Team Hurley-Henderson

We wound down the weekend with a quiet Sunday evening at home, and a little fritto misto:


Matunuck oysters, Point Judith squid, Bomster scallops, and crispy little smelts, plus some Meyer lemon slices for good measure.

Dinner:  April 5, 2009

Good food, good friends, and more laughter than I ever could have imagined – truly the recipe for a perfect weekend.

    They decapitated the tiny fish?
    Oh, the humanity!

    Now I’m craving for baitfish and baitfish braaaaains. I’ll have words with my fishmonger tomorrow.

  2. OH. MY. Seriously gorgeous food, especially that beautiful plate of fried seafood! I look forward to your weekend roundup posts each week! This one did not disappoint. 🙂

    Marcos – I have no idea why we can get sardines with their heads still on, but they removed them from the smelts. Ah, well. At least we can get them at all!

    Marie – Thanks!

    Tiny, finger and smaller-sized sardines (parrochitas) and other baitfish (jurelitos, chanchitos, pescaíto frito) is one of my guiltiest pleasures. Pleasure because they are finger-licking good, guilty because it’s inmature fish and living proof of how we ravage the oceans.
    Now they are verboten, which it’s good, but I still remember how good eating minuscule fish by the handful, tails, bones, heads and all, was.

    I always love all of your photos but that first one of the candles in the restaurant…I just love it….love it love it!
