Behind the bar at Barbarella, one of our local La Jolla restaurants, there's a sculpture by Niki de Saint Phalle! Really nice -- she also designed the tile work on the pizza oven. Evelyn and Tom had a really good time there last weekend, so we decided to try it again, and it was great.
To our surprise, when we arrived there with Ellen and Alec tonight, we discovered that they had a special Passover menu. You can see their Seder plate on the bar near the bottle of Grand Marnier. We ordered the Passover menu, including the dessert of ice cream with chocolate covered matzoh, and the starter of matzoh ball soup. Amazing. The hostess and owner did their own chocolate dipping -- they didn't clue in the waiter, though. He asked what we wanted to drink and I said "Four cups of wine," and he didn't get it.
