One very famous New York restaurant serves old lamb as "mutton", as we all now know.

Dinner last night at the Gafford in Stuart.  Good, not great.


Fine burger, perfectly cooked, good bun. $15


Dee had the Mabel's chicken which was two large pieces of fried chicken breast with a pepper cream gravy. Good mashed potato base. Lot of food.  She pronounced it OK.


Their Wednesday half price wine deal continues, we had a fine bottle of Erath pinot noir 2015 for $44. Good wine, will be better in 2-3 years. The house is pouring it way too early, I think.


Dee had an OK green salad, I had a bowl of their poblano corn and crab bisque. That was a wonderful soup, with layers and layers of flavor.  Definitely something I'd like to make.

For the initiator has the enmity of all who would profit by the preservation of the old institution and merely lukewarm defenders in those who gain by the new ones. ”
