Ulla Restaurant (Victoria, BC)

I had a nice long weekend in Victoria after my birthday. The highlight was an awesome meal at Ulla, arranged by my friend Tom. He also brought a 1978 Volnay to dinner that was a real treat.

State Bird Provisions (San Francisco)

I had the fortune of stand-up/solo dining at State Bird Provisions tonight. I dig the dim-sum-ish concept, and had some brilliant food.

Hawksmoor Spitalfields Bar (London, England)

Battling first night in London sleepiness, I checked out the Hawksmoor Spitalfields Bar. What a cool spot! I love it when a restaurant/bar takes what they make really seriously, but they manage to maintain a casual, fun environment. The design is pretty cool too, incorporating dark wood, subway tiles, brass, mirrors, etc. A little dark for iPhone photos, but here goes…

Quinto Quarto @ Campagnolo Roma (Vancouver, BC)

I really enjoyed tonight’s third Quinto Quarto dinner at Campagnolo Roma, an amazing nose-to-tail feast.

Sooke Harbour House (Sooke, BC)

We had the pleasure of dining and an overnight stay at Sooke Harbour House over the weekend. So relaxing, highly recommended.
