Rather than spend exorbitant amounts of money for mediocre food at the restaurants near the Opera House, we have taken to bringing in picnics. Sometimes the picnic is nothing but two dozen oysters and a baguette and brie, but on March 27, we brought in all the fixings for a composed salad. Namely:
- Lettuce dressed in a light vinaigrette
- Golden beets, marinated in red wine vinegar
- Rockfish, steamed and broken into chunks, mixed with diced red onion, sliced carrots, and capers
- fresh raw extra-small oysters to shuck
You can't beat the dinner, and it's hard to beat the view.
