Lazy Daze, Sunday, Nov 25

It's a lazy, lazy day. Both of us are catching up on the sleep deprivation from the night before. We venture out for a mid morning Starbucks and stocking up at Albertsons.

The highlight of the day is “Death at a Funeral”, a movie presented by the Park City Film Series. The series is shown in the Park City library that boosts a real theater. A rousing comedy set on the day of a father's funeral. We won't spoil things for you, but this is definitely a movie to add to your Netflix queue.

We make our way to Main Street, the happenin' place in Park City. But on a Sunday night, it's not so happenin'. Shops were closed and very few restaurants appeared to be open. We happened on 350 Main . The facade is quite unassuming, but the interior is beautiful – stamped copper ceiling being the most notable feature.

We were impressed by the Menu de Santé (Vitamin and antioxidant rich items, low in saturated fats and calories, yet high in flavor and variety. ) Paul ordered the Grilled Vegetable and Lentil Griddle Cakes - With coconut-laced yogurt raita, fiery green bean salad, and peppered mango (having been warned of the heat level, he confirmed his choice). Annette opted for a house special starter: Tower of Ahi and Hamachi - With tobiko caviar, pineapple shoyu, and wasabi aïoli. For entrees, Paul ordered the Calypso Seafood Nage: Shrimp, warm water lobster, clams, and sliced fish slowly simmered in a coconut-lobster broth, with yams, julienne vegetables, and steamed rice. Annette was drawn to the Hapuapua (black sea bass) special – lemon, herb marinated, pan seared served atop a bed of yams with a saffron butter sauce. She was so impressed, she asked for the recipe. Our waiter tells us the chef is very open to sharing his “secrets”. We passed on dessert, determined to “just say no” to the additional calories, though the choices were very tempting.

Once we return to our “home away from home”, we settle in for a movie to end the day.
