We went to the bar and got a glass of wine each. We were just chatting at same time I was looking a man who cleaned the oysters and serve them raw... would I try them? I have already done that once and liked it, but maybe it wasn't the best idea for the day before traveling.
Actually that wasn't an inconvenient at all, since we stayed at the bar having wine and chilling out. This restaurant has been visited by famous people and their pictures were hanging on the walls, mmm, like my idea of TB's pics hanging on the HQ's walls, haha. The wine was tasty and so the company. I didn't realize what time was it, until they let us know our table was ready and waiting for us, how nice!
The bar is so informal, but the dining room is serious and quiet... well, that was the first impression, wrong! Blair asked for a bottle of wine while we were thinking about what to order.
Our waitress came again and we were ready to order our entrees. Osvaldo, Vicky and Addie got the signature dish of the restaurant: "The Original Pascal's BBQ Shrimp" which is prepared in a spicy and tangy sauce.
A few minutes later, our waiter came with the dishes, but before starting to eat. The 3 people who'd get the BBQ Shrimp should wear their uniforms: a bib! so fun! Before the waitress left us, we ordered more wine and water. The food was delicious!!! Blair cooked the BBQ Shrimp once at his house when I was there and he wanted me to try the ones at the restaurant and compare them with the ones he cooked. Well... what can I say? Blair is a terrific cook!!! Well, we were full... could barely move, but we couldn't help it and
We ordered desserts, but to share! haha. I got the Caramel Custard, which was like a flan, nothing too heavy. Blair got the Bread Pudding, Osvaldo, Vicky and Addie a slice of cheesecake each of them. Ok, it was official we were too full... Time to order the check and get ready to leave, although none of us wanted to walk, haha.
Addie drove me back to the hotel. I had a flight to catch tomorrow at noon. Blair would come for me in the morning... I was so glad I packed everything before leaving. Now I could just go straight to bed and sleep... I was so tired...
