    Perhaps the biggest downside for me to living in a remote, rural mountain valley is the lack of sushi. So…when we are in civilization, this happens often…

    Did some Costco sirloin caps at Dad's tonight. Threw a few jalapeños on too. Weakest peppers I've ever had, almost no heat at all. But the steaks turned out really well and made sautéed mushrooms to go with them.

    Sirloin cap? That's not one I usually check out @ Costco. Those look great. Will need to check them out the next time the wife drags me to Costco!

    Yeah it's Picanha except they trim the fat cap off. I keep thinking I should ask if they have any with the fat still but haven't asked yet.

    It's not the most tender cut but it's very tasty. Cook it high and fast.

    I don't know. In this place, you don't ask too many questions :)

    My conversation with the waiter went something like this:

    Me: "Do you have clams?"
    Waiter: "I don't know. Maybe I do, and maybe I don't. You know what I mean?"
    Me: "Yes, yes I do"
    Me: "and also no, no I don't"
    Me: "I'll just have the oysters you suggested"

    Okay, not really. The waiter was super friendly. The entire environment has that mob feel, but in a good way. Perfect ambiance, food, service. This along with Peter Lugers and Wayne's Steak House (which is a clone of Peter Lugers from a former Lugers chef in Wayne, NJ) is the only time I haven't been disappointed with a restaurant steak. Sparks best steak is a sirloin -- somehow they make it work very, very well.

    LOL. I'm of Sicilian extraction. I should know better than to ask too many questions. Between you and @Jdubbya , am going to need to look more into sirloin steaks!

    I've seen this 918 a few times around his headquarters. Do you know much about his collection or have more 918 photos?

    Do they still have a terrific (and fairly priced) wine list?

    First time out for dinner in forever! A really long time. Celebrated mom’s birthday and Mother’s Day.

    Linwoods. For appetizers mom had the French onion soup, my wife had the crab soup, I had a Brussels sprout dish, and we order calamari to share. All were fantastic. Main course mom got a seafood linguine with shrimp, scallops, and mussels, my wife got a roasted chicken (not pictured), and I got tuna. The tuna was ok, and the others were excellent.

    Yes, excellent wine list. We had 2019 Clos Du Val -- which was very, very good at what I think was a bit less than the typical restaurant markup.

    I suspect a lot of their "sirloin magic" is in their dry aging process.

    Wow, that's an interesting way to go. Never thought of that. Sounds good but not sure I'd try to make it myself.

    Apologies, for the slow response. Have been traveling. It's charro beans. They were kind of bland. Kicked it up with Tabasco and that helped some.

    Took a cruise. The wife signed me up for an Indian cooking class. Since many of the culinary staff are from the Subcontinent, I figured it had to be good.

    Dal shorba. Lentil soup infused with flavor of fresh curry leaves, cumin, black mustard seeds, garlic, ginger and chilies. Yummy.

    Cabbage foogath. Onion, tumeric, green chilies, black mustard seeds. Wilt the shredded cabbage in coconut oil, add unsweetened shredded coconut towards the end. Not a combo I would have thought of, but it was great.

    Black mustard seeds and fresh curry leaves are two spices I've not used before. Definitely, gotta try and find those at one of the local Indian grocery shops.

    Red lentils over basmati rice. Flavored with curry leaves and black mustard seeds that I found at a local Indian grocery store.

    Made garbanzo bean curry the next night.
    Didn't take a picture, but this recipe. Very tasty.

    Needed some steak after a few days of veggie recipes. Decent sear for indoor cooking using the All-Clad. Didn't want to heat up the house since it's starting to get roasty in Tejas, so I finished it off at 300 F in the air fryer.
