Last evening Bea and I broke out the bikes and headed downtown for some appetizers at McCormick & Schmick's, then over a block to see a film. In all, pretty damn paleo. All of these can be clicked for the full size versions.
Three grilled lamb chops, rare. The drizzle and the cup are greek live oil with some sort of leaves in them, perhaps grape, and I thought I also tasted a bit of sage, maybe savory. Anyway, totally excellent, as good as any rack of lamb I've ever had.
Here's Bea's shrimp cocktail.
Then I had a sashimi & sushi plate. The rice was easy to deal with, 'cause if you'll notice, the nori wraps around the fish and cucumber, so I just tore it off right there and left the rice.
The bread went easily untouched. I'd have used the butter on the lamb chops, but the olive oil was the bomb.
So, some restaurants are easier for paleo eaters by eating a-la-carte from the appetizer menu. Other choices on the menu that would have fit paleo were steamed mussels in a white wine broth, oysters on the half shell, and butter and garlic drenched clams.
Looks like I have something left for a another visit. At 5-minutes away by bicycle and no parking issues, it's a wonder I don't go there more often. Then again, there's about 2 dozen restaurants that meet the same criteria. I love living urban.
