Steamed mussels – Rapp Session

Steamed mussels - Rapp Session
1/2 pound, morcilla, sherry broth, served with bread. $9
Rapp Session, Richmond VA

The broth was super rich especially from the morcilla (which I love). The mussels, however, were a bit overcooked. They were getting a bit hard.

Fanny Bay oysters – Boxing Room

Fanny Bay oysters - Boxing Room
Cocktail sauce, mignonette, lemon. Half dozen $20
Boxing Room, San Francisco CA

Boxing Room has since closed since I last visit, but I’m finally getting around to posting these pics. I’m kinda sad that it closed because I liked the food there, and there aren’t many good cajun/creole restaurants in The City. Anyway, I’ve already tried its replacement, Barcino, but that’s for another time.

These Fanny Bay oysters were very tasty – bright, clean, fresh, briny, and cleanly shucked. I could’ve easily eaten a dozen on my own, but didn’t want to break the bank.

Rockfish – Volt

Rockfish - Volt
Kohlrabi, szechuan lemon oil, dill. Tasting menu $95
Volt, Frederick MD

Mmm, this was delicious! And it wasn’t even on the tasting menu – they just brought it out as an extra. Not that I needed more food, I was getting pretty full at this point in the meal. I’m glad I tried this though. The rockfish was cooked beautifully, but I particularly liked the kohlrabi puree.
