I took Thursday off (and today) to celebrate... G and I spent the afternoon at the Jewish Museum to see an Art Spiegelman exhibit that is about to close. It was pretty comprehensive and informative and fun (at the same time, kind of depressing... if you've read Maus, you'll understand.) The rest of the museum was interesting; I especially liked one wing filled with modernist sculptures.
I didn't really get any shots of the museum so here is a pile of petals discarded from farmer's market flowers. This is somehow representative.
After the museum, I was pretty hungry so we went back downtown to Sacred Chow, for which I had a Groupon. I'd been there a couple times previously, but not since they re-did the inside and the menu. Abby has a review of that here.
There was still plenty to like and I thought the prices were fair (maybe because I was really only paying half, with the Groupon) but I would definitely return. I agree that the tables were small, though: G and I both ordered the three tapas meal (for $19.50,) which came on two plates each, which meant we had to use the adjoining tables, but since it was about 4:30 on a Thursday, there wasn't a crowd so it worked out.
G and I both ordered the vegetable kebabs:
G also ordered the black olive seitan and eggplant rollatini to round out his meal:
My other two sides were sesame collards and Indonesian tempeh:
And um, just to fill out the Groupon, we ordered dessert:
That was my very full day. From the restaurant, I ran to work to loan a friend a book, then to therapy, then to visit another friend, who is a bit under the weather, then home again home again to see my best lady:
So, yes. Happy Spring. Here's to greener things....
