Last year, when my childhood friend Maria and I escaped for a few days to Sonoma, we checked out a popular Portuguese-style restaurant on Sonoma Plaza, La Sallette, which had come very highly recommended.
Not only did we love it then, both of us had it on our “must do” list for this year as well.
Last year seemed like an exploratory voyage into a little-known cuisine. We loved it for that, and we loved the unfamiliar flavor combinations that the chef had put together so skillfully.
Though the two approaches are diametrically opposite, I don’t find either one better than the other.
To be honest, I’m actually happiest when I find a balance of the known and the novel – and I make sure to look for the best of each.
What a perfect ending to another pretty darn spectacular day! Time to head back home now, and see what sorts of fun adventures I can conjure up for you next…
