Pan friend scallops with truffle oil, fleur de sel, and black pepper. $12 a pound at this time of year, $7 in season. They're hours off the boat. Varied in size, but none small--regular ocean scallop to golf ball. Jimmy talked up the cod; Vietnamese fried cod tomorrow.
Kurt Wentzell's potatoes, simply baked.
Green chard and mild onion bisque. A little fresh-grated parmesan.
A few hours later, a barely-sweet baked apple pastry from Boulangerie la Vendeenne. Lovely, and--
Spring is just around the corner.
