Murphys Eats & Scenes

Friday night after work, we drove in to Old Town Sacramento and ate at The Firehouse Restaurant (see Abe’s hilariously honest review here) in Old Town. WP_20140221_001They brought out a “Chef’s Taste”  which was a Dungeness Crab salad with Dijon mustard dressing atop a cauliflower ricotta – so  good! WP_20140221_006The Steak DelmonicoWP_20140221_008For dessert we got the Hot Chocolate which was more like the most decadent chocolate cake/mousse/ganache/fudge ever. YUM.InstagramCapture_210f994e-c27e-4ef4-bd3b-6852f9f5eb76_jpgSO happy about LEFTOVERS!

We drove up to Murphys and ate lunch at Alchemy Market and Winebar (sans Abe, who had to work – boo).  DSCN1008 DSCN1004 DSCN1009I got the crab cake and it was HUGE and delicious!

We stopped in a bakery called Aria to “refuel” 😉 and got an eclair and some tea.DSCN1019 DSCN1022DSCN1026Oh Poppy 🙂

Still full from our day’s feedings, we stopped into V Bistro to get some (oh you know like SEVEN!?!) small plates for dinner. At least Abe was hungry from his work day.2014-02-23 10.17.59 DSCN1029“Devils on Horseback” Medjool dates stuffed with bleu cheese and wrapped in bacon. They were tasty, but interesting.DSCN1028Tuna Sashimi 🙂 My small plate of choice after a particularly rich day of eating.DSCN1045Dessert of coconut bread pudding. Since I got a very chocolate-y (he doesn’t prefer chocolate) dessert on Friday, Abe got his choice on Saturday. Sad, but it’s only fair 😉DSCN1032 All of our “small plates”DSCN1042 DSCN1035

Sunday morning breakfast was at Grounds ( Abe’s review here).2014-02-23 10.17.44 2014-02-23 09.48.00Basil and tomato scramble. More cheeeeeese please!2014-02-23 09.48.09Herb omlette – wonderful!!!
