Dinner and a Wedding

Posted by on Aug 6, 2014 in Pizza | 1 comment

This is way TMI for a blog post.  Sometime during the wee hours of Monday, July 28th, a wicked insect chose me above MP to sideline.   I lost Tuesday and Wednesday frankly, Googling for remedies to the assault.

During the night (morning) about 2 am after great success with blasts to my right knee with a new hair-dryer in three 15-second intervals, I searched  for a restaurant in Carmel-By-the-Sea.








la Bicyelette reminded me of a blended European café serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner; it remained our choice for a casual meal with friends during Emily and Alex’s wedding weekend. I liked the idea of a rustic; short straightforward a la carte menu which changes daily so the locals can eat there every night!  Some of the produce is grown by schoolchildren in the school’s sustainable gardens.    The manager greeted us with such exuberance and vibrant descriptions of the daily fare that I wanted to order a bite of everything.  A wood-fired pizza oven hones thin-crust pizzas to extraordinary deliciousness.







Summer Squash Avignon







Local Champignon Portabella ~crimini, & oyster mushrooms, caramelized onion Purée, truffle pecorino, mozzarella, thyme

Our party went straight to the pizza.  Because we were perched next to the natural light of the window, I will let my pictures set the table.







As a passionate beet aficionado, I selected the organic beet salad~ organic lettuce, Point Reyes blue cheese, buttermilk dressing.











Who can resist giant Napa heirloom tomatoes, fresh buffalo mozzarella and aged Balsamic caprese?

Porc for MP







If only I were the exuberant descriptor, I could tell you about this special breed of Japanese pork rack and its layer of belly fat.

Then there was







Chocolate Budino with olive oil drizzle







Pot de Mousse au Chocolat

Thank you  Mike and Kathy, Michael and Marja... "Now we are even "
