About The Lady Killigrew

Previous Entry The Lady Killigrew Jul. 22nd, 2006 @ 09:49 pm Next Entry
reveilles and I went to The Lady Killigrew tonight for dinner. They are located near The Montague Bookmill (motto: "Books you don't need in a place you can't find"). The menu at The Lady Killigrew is quite limited, but it's interesting.

I had a panini with apples marinated in maple syrup and balsamic vinegar, brie, and apricot jam. reveilles had a panini with sausage, cheddar, and whole grain mustard. Both were served with a side salad. The salads were excellent: mixed greens with diced carrots and diced beets in a light but flavorful vinaigrette. The sandwiches were on organic sourdough bread which was nicely toasted. (Note: I hate places that "toast" bread by just making it warm. Toasted bread should be browned and noticeably crunchy.) I was afraid my sandwich would be too sweet, but the balsamic vinegar and the sourdough contributed enough tartness to result in a flavorful but balanced sandwich. For dessert, we had vanilla ice cream covered in port (not port sauce or a port reduction, but 1 ounce of port poured over the ice cream). This dessert was not a combination I would have tried on my own, but now that we've tried it, it's something I could see myself making at home in the future. We both enjoyed it.

As a fun addition to the dining experience, they had a collection of board games available. reveilles and I played a game of Scrabble and, for the first time, I beat reveilles (242 to 228). WOOT!

There is a second, fancier restaurant at the same location called The Night Kitchen. reveilles and I ate there once. The food was good but not great, especially not for the price. If we go back to The Montague Bookmill, we will only eat at The Lady Killigrew.

P.S.: I couldn't to The Montague Bookmill without buying some used books. I came home with Candyfreak by Steve Almond and Keys to the City by Joel Kostman.

Panino. You had a panino. reveilles had a panino. The two of you had panini.

(Have you met my pet, Peeve?)

They do sound good -- I had a wonderful roasted chicken, apple and cheddar cheese panino in a café on the main pedestrian drag of Burlington, Vermont once. It's stuck with me for years.

It's 112°F outside. Yet I am cooking tri-tip for sandwiches and boiled corn-on-the-cob.

I have to go offline now. The fan on my computer is not able to keep up with the heat.

Thank you for the correction. I knew there was a difference between the singular and the plural, but didn't know what the difference was.

112°F is too hot. While it hasn't been that hot in MA, reveilles and I have been trying to cook dinners that don't involve the oven to keep the house reasonably cool.

Good luck staying cool. Is the heat supposed to break anytime soon?

Wow, the heat made me a lot bitchier than I normally am. Sorry about that.

Theoretically -- THEORETICALLY, mind you -- the heat is supposed to break on Wednesday. What this means is that it will be 92° instead of well over 100°. We probably won't see highs in the 80's until November (or until we move to Anaheim).

I've been using the outdoor grill a lot, because I can even bake lasagne on it -- but it was so hot yesterday that I couldn't even touch the grill without burning my hand, so I made the tri-tip in... the oven (dramatic chord).

We're going out tonight. I ain't cookin'. Monday we'll have salad with goat-cheese toasts (merely requires the toaster to be heated for ~5 minutes). I haven't thought past that.

I didn't find that bitchy and I was happy to know how to deal with panino/panini.

92° is still quite hot. I didn't realize it stayed that hot in LA for that long.

Ah, the wonderful world of microclimates.

On a typical summer day, it's 80° at the beach (say, Santa Monica), 90° downtown (about 10 miles inland, but with no mountains blocking the air from the ocean), 100° in the Valley where we live (also 10 miles from the ocean, but with mountains in between), and 110° in the desert.

So I can drive over the hill between here and Beverly Hills and the temperature will drop ten degrees... and between Beverly Hills and Santa Monica, another ten degrees. This made it interesting when we lived in Santa Monica but I worked in the Valley -- I'd dress for a "normal" day and discover that it was 100°+ at work.

Then, in September and October, the winds shift and blow from the north off the high desert, making it absolutely unbearable all over the place, and blowing the smog out to Santa Monica. It will then be 95° or 100° in Santa Monica as well as the Valley, and windy as all hell. (We call these "Santa Anas" or "devil winds".)

It'll change back to "nice" in October, and it'll be downright pleasant by your birthday.

I remember microclimates from my summers in the San Francisco area. We really don't have microclimates in my part of Massachusetts. About the only thing you find is that elevation makes a big difference in how much snow people get and how long it sticks around.

You actually managed to beat her at Scrabble? Color me amazed...I didn't think such a feat was possible.

I actually did. I think this was the fourth or fifth game we've played and our first game since getting married. I don't enjoy Scrabble since I find the task of finding anagrams to be more work than fun.

scrabble is boring
especially if you have a megalomaniac (wannabe) in the family

I don't really find Scrabble boring, I just find it takes too much work to get enjoyment out of it.

Are you referring to reveilles as the megalomanic, or someone in your household?

Well, I've never played Scrabble with her so I won't be able to say for certain.

But be careful...certain member of my family shares similar traits with her. For the future sanity of the future Coblings, either don't let them play Scrabble with her or...don't let her become Scrabble-crazy else it'll suck the joy right out of it.

I played scrabble in a school competition once. It was fun. I can see how it can be fun...:) I didn't do so great but for being drafted at the last minute so we could have a team...
