Last week, a few swell things happened that called for celebration. I won’t go into the details just yet, but what I will say is that they were exciting enough to warrant a fancy dinner out. I’ve been wanting to eat at Nick’s on Main in Los Gatos for forever, and even though it’s not Gary Danko’s by any means, it was a place I’d been saving to visit until an occasion such as this. I’d heard that they are always booked, so when I called last Thursday night about possibly squeezing in that same evening, I wasn’t expecting much. But Nick, the man himself, picked up and said they had a reservation for 8 p.m.! I swiped on some lipstick and Alan put on a nice shirt and away we went.
For my entree, I had the grilled rib eye with dungeness crab butter, roasted truffle potatoes, sauteed asparagus, and a red wine demi glace. It was amazing.
Alan had the pan roasted veal rib chop with creamy polenta, french beans, and a cluster of wild mushrooms. His polenta was out of this world! Lucky for me, Alan’s not the hugest polenta fan, so I got to dig right in.
