Scallops ala Oak City Grill. 3/1/21

Among his many admirable abilities, our son is also a good cook. Since we are on vacation together currently he offered to make a special dinner. The whole family used to enjoy going out to the now defunct Oak City Grill in Menlo Park. My favorite dish was seared scallops in a beurre blanc sauce with mashed potatoes, braised leeks, asparagus, and mushrooms. This was the dish he recreated for us.

He made the dinner entirely with no help from us. It was super delicious. The scallops were just cooked through, the mashed potatoes were silky, the asparagus were just a little crisp, the leeks were meltingly good, and the beurre blanc was buttery and delicious. John offered to do the dishes so I spent my evening as a guest. Superb!
