The house closed! We celebrated last night with a lovely dinner at Zov's Bistro and Bakery. This is an Armenian restaurant, but it also serves comfort food, and the bakery is eye-popping. Everything is really wonderful, if a little pricey. I had a roasted lamb sandwich and fruit salad along with a cup of golden lentil soup with a hint of cumin. The bread had texture and did not surrender to the moistness of the meat. Lovely.
Richard had his favorite meatloaf. I am not a good maker of meatloaf, so it was his opportunity to sample Zov's version, which he says was the best he ever had. It was served with a cloak of shitake mushroom sauce and a side of lovely glazed green beans and mashed potatoes. The menu claimed that feta played a part in this blend somewhere.
Our realtor, Chris, had an ethereal pasta with calimari and shrimp in cream sauce. I know. None of this sounds Armenian, except the soup. But it was great! I would gladly go back again sometime to celebrate all over again.
