While I was walking around Old Park City, I spotted this restaurant and made a mental note that I would like to give it a try.
Later when I picked Bernie up from his golf game, he said he had played with a PC resident who recommended we go to Shabu for dinner.
Isn't that a fun co-incident?
Orange walls: I love orange walls!
And I thought the wall hanging in the entry way was a very clever way to display a shell collection.
Our appetizer: Something new for us: Blistered Green Beans: here's a similar recipe.
Delicious! (The dish we had had peanuts instead of sesame seeds though, and no chili sauce.)
Check out that satisfied smile! Check out the lampshade made from pieced together sari fabric!
Dessert was Raspberry Rosemary Sorbet. What a wonderful flavor pairing! We were so happy with everything-the atmosphere, the wait staff, the food-that we can't wait to go back again soon.
The owner walked out with us. He explained that this was their last night in this locations (?!?!?!), that they would be closed for two months, then re-opening just down the street in a slightly smaller street level location. (I actually liked being upstairs for the view at the original place...hope the view from the street will be good.)
Times have been hard for the PC restaurant owners; the economic situation has led to restaurant offering great deals on various menu aspects (drink specials, appetizer specials, two for one...) but Shabu were doing fine...just wanted to take advantage of a more visible location on Main Street.
Once the snow flies...they will open again.
I think there is a really good chance we will be there when it happens!
(especially since we found a "buy a $10 gift card for $25 off dinner" offer at the restaurant on line. I had never thought to look for such a thing, but when I went to check out their reviews, there it was. Hmmm....I'm going to do that kind of research more often!)
