... were buy-worthy valves at Sawyer’s:

... where the chicken sandwich:

... prevailed in the pecking order of clucker combos. Moist meat armored in a cravable, crustiness nested in nice kneadage with black garlic mayo.

We ordered the skate, but they subbed it out with scallops ($23.00):

... and told us that we could get a refund if we weren’t into it (which was an interesting way of handling an 86). This caper and yam chipped shellfish was fine but I don’t know if we would have ordered it from the menu.

The fowl folio is enough to lure us back for another go for dinner sometime soon.

The ar-rest-ing rooms Paley feature a toilet bowl:

... that illuminates as you enter their Toto-torch ‘luminated loo (with heated seats).

It was a fluke ($23.00):

... that we found ourselves with during brunch at this geometrically-influenced eatery with orrery-esque lighting fixtures and bespoke napkins.

Asparagus, peas and a celeriac puree were a fine frame for the fish while the omelette ($12.00):

... oozed with raclette next to a side salad.

A drizzle of honey unfolded a fantastic, fresh, fan of fruit ($5.00):

... but the bacon ($4.00):

... had a burnt taste that subdued these swine strips.

We plan to park ourselves at Paley again for dinner sometime soon.

The Mai Tai ($26.00):

... at Here’s Looking at You:

... was a pleasing potion in the tiki tipple with a pickled cherry foliaged with mint.

Although top shelf liquids were employed in this elixir, and it was just fine, I’m not sure it would wet our whistles with another. The saline content of the stone fruit untaied our tastes a tad, but it was still a sippable solution followed by 2014 Kruger-Rumpf Riesling.

Cured salmon ($14.00):

... came with fish skin chicharron and a potpourri of papery plumage that didn’t spawn our affection, but the sturgeon ($26.00):

... with rice porridge, buttermilk, caviar and chicken skin was fin nom in al with a chicken of the sea appeal of comfort chow.

The prawns ($22.00):

... were okay with a diabla sauce and avocado but not reorderable while the Bogartable veal sweetbreads ($16.00):

... were top notch, glandular goodness sprinkled with mustard seeds and sesame and counterpointed with pickled fennel.

We would get a letter of transit back for the sweetbreads, but would probably Casablanca out on the salmon and prawns at this new, friendly fusion front.

Lost Property:

... is a dim den for drinks where we recovered over a “Howard Hawks” ($14.00):

... which was a ryely authored drink enriched with egg white, rum and citrus perfumed with absinthe. The “Lincoln’s Anecdote”($15.00):

... was delivered with bourbon, brandy and bitters in a likable, lemony libation.

The chow was less our thing with a doughy arugula and prosciutto flatbread ($15.00):

... and some shortrib sliders ($12.00):

... that were okay, but lacked luminance in this dark dugout.
