Birthdays in Toronto

Richard and I headed west to Toronto for the weekend to celebrate friends' birthdays. We were on Yonge Street just as the sun was setting.

The party was held at a lovely little place called Starfish.

We started with a platter of three different kinds of oysters: 2 from the east coast and the other from the west.

We all liked the ones called Raspberry Point from P.E.I. so much that we ordered another platter of these.

For appetizers some folks had fish cakes and fried calamari salad. Here is another starter that was roasted sardines.

Jill had mussels in a lovely sauce that tasted somewhat of fennel...

...and they came with yummy, crispy frites.

Richard and I ordered the roasted halibut for two. Really tasty.

The meal ended with key lime pie from Dufflet's Pastries.

Birthday girls Patty and Wendy blowing out their birthday pie.

Here are my friends Wendy and Judah, both of whom I've known since high school.

Jill and me with the birthday girls Wendy and Patty. I can't remember when I've laughed so much. Isn't that the best way to spend an evening? Laughing and eating good food with good friends.

Wow, those sardines look just like Mama D used to cook up at our place in Bellagio! Fantastic!

Where was the gravy and curds on the fries? I guess they didn't rate so high...
