Her sister and brother-in-law made the trip down from Northern California. We joined them all, along with my in-laws' friends at Spago.
Last time Brent and I ate at Spago, Larry King was eating there, too. Early in last night's meal I looked behind us and laughed when I saw Larry King AGAIN. My father-in-law eventually spotted him, too, and saw that he was dining with Robert Shapiro, whom he worked with years ago.
At one point my father-in-law disappeared to go say hello. I snapped this sly pic.
Onto the food! Sorry that the pics are a bit blurry. And the lighting. And the cropping. Blah, blah, blah...
My appetizer - Pumpkin agnolotti with brown butter. This was my favorite dish of the night.
Brent's appetizer - Sweetbreads
My entree - Duck
Brent's entree - Rack of lamb
Desserts. Brent and I shared a brown butter cake and an affelstrudel.
Everything was delicious, as to be expected, but by the time desserts came around, I was busting at the seams. I tried to talk Brent into splitting dishes with me from the start, but he was all, "NO! It's NOM NOM GOOD! NO SHARE!"
Can't really blame the guy.
