We arrived at nueve o’clock and the dining room was still busy at the recently resurrected Taqueria Nueve.

A puckery margarita and a solid shot of tequila:

... started off our evening before sinking into ceviche ($4.50):

... on a crisp tortilla and a cojita enriched guacamole tostada ($3.75) with onion and cilantro:

Lengua ($4.00), boar ($4.00) and rock fish ($4.25):

... were tucked into house made tortillas in a triad of tasty tucker.

As we exited, we thanked the owner and asked why he called it “nueve”. He held up his hands in a digital answer to our inquiry.

Shattery shingles of pristine pastry from Bakeshop’s chocolate croissant:

... confettied our table at Christopher David.

This knick knack/snack shack also dispenses macarons from Farina:

We chose the gingerbread and peanut butter variations of these sweet buttons to bookend a wheaten wheel of ricottaed relishability in a Bakeshop “rustic tart”:

... washed down with coffee.

The Old Glisan ($8.00): and Sagebrush ($8.00):

... whetted our whisky whistles as we settled in at East Glisan Pizza Lounge:

... for some meatballs ($7.00):

These pleasing, porky, ping pongs were perked with acidity from a toga of tomato sauce.

Capicola ($14.00):

... crowned a provoloned pie with fennel, peppers and arugula while mushrooms ($12.00):

... mingled with fontina in a beautifully blistered, garlicy, gluten gastero-gasket.

This friendly food frisbee front was a fun foray.

A guac-laced burger ($10.95):

... with a side of o-rings ($4.99):

... at The Lunch Box:

... in the Burbank Airport:

... was holding pattern chow with a surplus of grease to this captive audience cuisine.

We got some viet nom at Red Medicine:

... where an arrangement of foraged mushrooms ($22.00):

... were fun-gussied up with beurre noisette in a tasty terrarium while leeks ($15.00):

... sprung with yuzu and buttermilk.

Pork cheeks ($28.00):

... were pinched with red currant in a swirl of swine while hamachi ($19.00):

... was haloed with kale oil and quince.

Chicken dumplings ($9.00):

... weren’t the American comfort creation, but a lettuce leaf wrapped collection of condiments of crunchy, sweet, spicy and sour that coalesced into a cravable combustion.

Red Medicine was a course of treatment that left us habituated.

Patys is reliably reliable.

It’s like Denny’s more interesting cousin:

... nothing worth a detour, but you know precisely what is going to appear on your plate and it won’t involve kale or quinoa.

My “International omelet” ($11.75):

... may have been named for the exotic ingredients of sausage, avocado and tomato but whatever the motivation was for the title, it provided the promised, familiar, fortification.

We perched at the bar of the Cardinal Club:

... where we wet our beaks with an Old Fashioned ($6.50) and the “International Velvet” ($7.50):

... which were fine fluid fortification before a sensational serving of singed Caesar ($8.00):

... or “grilled romaine” as this nom is plumed. This smoky salad spun with crunchy croutons anointed in anchovy with fried capers and gratings of Grana Padano.

Brussels ($6.00):

... sprouted with garlic in a heady helping hovered with bits of bacon while crisp calamari ($7.00):

... got a pool of pepper aioli.

The place seemed underpopulated for a Saturday at 9 p.m. considering their good chow. We will have to check out the house made sausage with clams next time we fly by.

Meringue cigarettes butted against each over in a pack of mousse and ganache panache in Pix’s:

... “The Concord” ($7.50):

Red ribbon bound this bundle of delicate delectability which we counterpointed with a citrusy “Incognito” ($7.00):

Light, lemony cheesecake got crunch from a gingery streusel and a kiss of raspberry.

Even the coffee came with a flourish of chocolate:

... at this pix perfect pitstop.
