Collette, Toran, Aurelia, Jonathon & I spent a day in Santa Cruz recently. Jonathon, having lived in Santa Cruz, remembered the Crow's Nest fondly, so we went there for dinner. We had a stunning beach side view on the deck, while being protected with high class walls.
Toran & I started out with a nice cup of clam chowder. It could have used a tad more salt, but was tasty nevertheless.
Collette & Aurelia split a kids fish & chips and seemed to enjoy it.
Jonathon, without further ado, went directly for the yellowtail special. He said the fish was great!
Next arrived Toran's salad completing his kids soup & salad set.
And I was simply bowled over by my sesame ahi salad. What's not to like about that beautiful bowl of greens with broccoli, rice noodles, fresh ginger, almonds and seared ahi sprinkled with sesame seeds? And the flower garnish was lovely too. I assure you, it tasted as good as it looks.
Strawberry ice cream was a hit with the under 12 set.
Jonathon & I found the key lime pie with a hint of mango irresistable. It was good, and could used a bit more mango.
The beach was extraordinary.
And the company couldn't have been better.
