We retraced our walk along the water back to Seaport Village and decided to enjoy a small snack from Frosted Robin Cupcakes.
When we returned to the hotel, we discovered that my parents had arrived. They were joining us for 2 days in San Diego. So we all gathered in our room for a glass of wine, toasted our anniversary, and then went our separate ways, my parents to Marble Room and us to dinner at Island Prime.
Island Prime on Harbor Island.
We arrived a bit before our reservation time, and after a brief wait, we were seated right next to a window with a wonderful view of the water & city.
|SP chose sake, I chose a viognier|
|The bread was actually a popover, the first time I've ever had a popover|
|The inside of the popover. It was tasty, airy, crusty.|
|A Study in Lobster appetizer: lobster lollipop (tempera battered), lobster-fontina grilled cheese, lobster bisque.|
|SP's entree: Hazelnut Crusted Grouper with pineapple salsa, lemon-sea salt beans, lime-ginger beurre blanc|
|My entree: Pan Roasted Day Boat Scallops atop fingerling potatoes instead of risotto cake (which had garlic in it), crispy prosciutto, butternut squash, and yuzu beurre blanc|
|Close up of scallop|
|Side order of Smoked Wild Mushrooms, peppercorn demi, puff pastry, shallots, thyme, and rosemary sprig|
|Dessert: Creme Brulee Trio (chocolate, vanilla, pineapple)|
|I chose a fruity black tea from a tea chest of loose leaf teas. The loose leaf tea was placed into a tea bag for brewing.|
|View towards end of dinner|
Definitely a good place to celebrate our anniversary.
