Memorable Summer Dishes

Although the fall has not official arrived in NYC yet, the drop in temperatures is making me miss the warm summer days already.

While I love the fall season and I look forward to the beautiful foliage and pumpkins galore, I will be sure to miss my summer wardrobe and all the wonderful meals I enjoyed over the summer.

I have been talking about launching a restaurant review section for some time. I was hoping to make it happen before the end of summer but I have not had enough time to get it ready.

I know you are tired of waiting and so am I. So here am I, sharing some of the summer inspired dishes I appreciated over the past few months. If you find these dishes delicious, please be sure to check back because I will write about these dishes (and many more) in detail.

All pictures are taken with my phone so I do apologize for the picture quality.

Let’s start with a chilled appetizer. For you raw fish lovers, how about a starter that consists of a bed of tuna tartar and topped with caviar and flying fish roe. Yummy.

The same tuna tartar and flying fish roe can also transform a typical taco into a delicious seafood taco dream. Of course, that dash of spicy aioli is a must.

Still craving for more seafood? The perfectly cooked jumbo lump crab cake and grilled shrimp and scallopes in mustard sauce will complete your dream.

The rich, nutty flavor in this Black Sesame crème brulee makes this dessert such a good treat after a satisfying meal. Dip some of that cracker in the soft black sesame ice cream and eat with a spoonful of the crème brulee, I am in heaven 🙂

Feeling being lazy? There is no better way to start the weekend with perfect brunch French toast in a  warm Saturday afternoon. Especially when the French toast is stuffed with sweet mascarpone and topped with fresh blueberries

Speaking of fresh fruits, how about some freshly picked raspberries from a local Long Island farm. Next year, I will be sure to not miss the strawberry picking season.

    Sonic CD takes place after Sonic 1…when he was still running solo then comes Sonic 2 which leads to Sonic 3 & Knuckles, then the Sonic 4 saga. I’m guessing with the return of Metal Sonic for the Sonic 4 saga, they are going back to show the origins of Metal Sonic, which I see is the only connection I see for Sonic CD.

    Wow, you’ve eaten some great stuff this summer! I can’t wait to hear more details about these. That Tuna Tartar is a stunner, as is the Black Sesame Crème Brulee. And I can never resist French Toast (or pancakes!) loaded with berries. Nice pictures – eagerly waiting to learn more! (But take your time – we all know that real life takes us away from blogging.) Thanks for this.
