Sunday Funday in the City
Today we headed down to San Francisco to meet up with Cathy & Sal for lunch. They let us pick so we decided on Coqueta, Michael Chiarello's restaurant at Pier 5 along the Embarcadero. The food and views were outstanding but I was a bit disappointed in the service. We had confirmed over the phone that we were going to be 4 adults and a highchair but when we arrived that informed us that they only had 1 highchair and it was already in use. Well, needless to say this made for a difficult and exhausting dining experience. They gave us the highchair after we were done with lunch, and at that point Lily did not want to be strapped down after being free for over an hour. Anyways, the food and drinks were great. Its tapas style so we all shared a charcuterie and cheese plate, beet salad, crispy duck meatballs and paella. After lunch Rollie, Lily and I walked around the Ferry Building before deciding to make the trek over to Union Square to window shop and check out the big Christmas tree. It was about a 4 mile round trip walk but the weather was perfect and it felt good to walk off lunch. We headed home just as the sun was setting over the Golden Gate bridge. Pretty great day!
