I just got in from a memorable evening with friends at a French-Californian restaurant in Jackson Square called Myth. We had entertaining conversation over excellent food, and also managed to surprise the MSG with a lemon tart from Bay Bread to celebrate his birthday last Sunday. Though coordinating the surprise was a little challenging, every bit of it was worth the smile on his face. (He surprised me first, two and a half years ago, with this wonderful birthday cake.)
The evening’s special, gnocchi with peas and paper-thin sliced black truffles, was one of the best dishes I have ever eaten, and the lemon tart was the perfect end to an exquisite meal.
